Scott Barkan is a guitarist, singer and songwriter based in New York. After years of working as an in demand sideman for various songwriters and bands around the country, having his guitar playing and songwriting featured on national television, as well as leading numerous guitar oriented instrumental projects, Scott has recently struck out as a solo artist. The new project, which finds Scott's signature shimmering guitar tones and skronky, avant/country improvisations serving as the backdrop for his witty, self-effacing and often heartbreaking lyric writing, is without-a-doubt Barkan's most personal project to date. The tunes themselves run the gamut from swampy grooves to blistering bluegrass numbers to ethereal ballads, but Barkan's powerful voice and somber, humorous songwriting always remain front and center, the thread that strings all these elements together. Since releasing his debut solo album last year, Scott has been hitting the northeast music scene hard, garnering comparisons to folk rockers like John Hiatt and Richard Thompson, as well as guitar wizards John Scofield and Bill Frisell, at performances all over the region. Recently, Scott has been touring relentlessly throughout the country and internationally in support of his new album, "Flightless Bird".
