Locally Grown Music Online: Scott Strickland
July 16, 2020

We miss live music, so we’re bringing our #LocallyGrownMusic series online.

We’ll be starting it back up on Thursday, July 16 at 7pm with an intimate rock ’n’ soul performance from Scott Strickland, only on Instagram!

Scott’s music is a colorful palette made from rock, jazz, and soul influences. His band was getting ready to record their next record when the pandemic hit, and we’re hoping he’ll bring some of those new songs out for us.

Follow us on IG @austinmusicfoundation so you don’t miss it!

And check out our Locally Grown Music playlist on Spotify.


About Scott Strickland

Scott Strickland has a magnetic, soulful personality and is the kind of person who will quickly make your table the loudest in the bar the minute he sits down. Scott started playing guitar when he was 15, stealing his younger brother’s acoustic to strum the same three chords over and over again until the wee hours of the morning.  At 16, Scott’s mother bought him his first Honer HW300G acoustic, and the rest was history.

“Passion is the only thing worth pursuing.”

Scott moved to Austin in 2013. An open mic at the Speakeasy, followed by an immediate show that following week, changed Scott’s perspective on what was possible for him musically.  Connecting and playing with many talented musicians based in Austin, Scott strives to spread the colorful, textural, palette of Rock, Jazz, and Soul to anyone willing to listen.  If you can imagine a 3am jam sesh between Richie Havens, Donnie Hathaway, and Bill Withers, with a more contemporary flair, these are the bold and rich sounds of the Scott Strickland Band.
