Born in south central Pennsylvania,
Scott Peoples was raised in a musically talented family. His grandfather, a
jazz guitarist, whose music played on KDKA radio in Pittsburgh, was his biggest musical influence.
His sister, a talented pianist & artist and his mother, blessed with a
beautiful voice, both surrounded Scott with a great musical vibe. His father
even today, is a popular DJ with a broad musical background, who hosts the Dickinson College radio show “Catching the Sun”.
He developed a melodic sensibility and a passion for the
great guitar riffs of the 80’s and 90’s. With musical influences varying from
Eddie Van Halen, James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Joe Satriani, Eric Clapton and
Steve Vai, he was transformed into a musician and singer songwriter with a love
for great lyrics and equally great guitar work.
Scott cut his musical teeth as a rock and roll weekend
warrior for a number of rock and alternative bands, the most recent being Playn
Jayn. The last few years have been devoted to refining his skills as a guitarist
and song writer. His writing and playing style has evolved into what can be
where influences of country, rhythm and blues and rock-n-roll all come together
Scott will release his first ever self-titled EP on January
4, 2013 and is recording his full length CD in February 2013. Currently living
in Harrisburg, PA his quest is to infuse the second half of
his life with music, creativity and share it with others.

“Scott Peoples is breaking into the Harrisburg area. I was fortunate enough to
catch his performance at an open mic at HMAC and he is definitely a
singer/songwriter to keep your eye on. It’s very easy to get drawn in just from
his heartfelt lyrics and his voice is a huge added bonus! I hope to catch him "Out
and About" again soon.”
