Scott Holt has been a bearer of the Blues torch for his entire career.

Holt calls it "tapping a frequency-getting to a place where the sounds that my band and I make are warm, human and undisguised by technology." Through countless hours and miles on the road, criss-crossing the country, Scott has developed a reputation as one of the most exciting live blues acts in the world.
