Uplifting electric & acoustic guitar seamlessly mixed with a DJ set of dance pop anthems

Tim Scott, an exceptionally talented guitarist, originated something new when he started mixing his stunning guitar skills with a DJ set. His popular live performances are described simply as: “Live guitar mixed with an uplifting DJ set of dance pop anthems.” Tim plays alongside current Dance, Pop, Classic 70’s 80’s 90’s Pop & Rock, Indie Anthems and 00’s Trance hits; adding Top Gun style 80's Rock meets Carlos Santana inspired Spanish guitar to the mix. His mashups capture the imagination, keeping an audience engaged and filling the dance floor. As an accomplished artist in his own right Tim occasionally adds a few original tunes to this heady mix adding a higher personal value to an event. Tim plays 100 plus gigs a year in night clubs, lifestyle bars, restaurants and at private events. Since graduating from the prestigious London Guitar Institute (now known as ICMP), Tim’s career first took off with the release of his fusion-rock debut titled 'Bald On The Inside', described as - "Impressive, world-class stuff" Guitarist (magazine) This opened the door to working in collaboration with the legendary Radio 1 DJ, Judge Jules. They produced the track 'Puesta Del Sol' and ‘City Rockers’ (remixed from the melody of ‘Ibiza’s Secret Garden). Blending Tim's Spanish Marcus Twiddle guitar with Jules' signature Trance and Techno beats. Brandishing his signature sparkly-pink laser guitar, Tim was flown out to Ibiza to play live on the Radio 1 weekend. His funky rock guitar style making a welcome addition to Jules' Balearic beats. Inspired by the Ibiza experience, Tim experimented merging multiple styles which he dubbed “Guitar Mashing”. National press accolade followed: "It's not often we declare a guitar album to be outstanding, yet Tim Scott has come up with something that's both highly original and genuinely refreshing" Guitar Techniques (magazine) "For a man who’s been frequently compared to some of history’s greatest guitarists, Tim Scott’s forward-thinking attitude towards dance music is not only commendable, but has assisted in producing some delectably unique music. Being compared to the likes of Joe Satriani, Jeff Beck, Steve Vai and Steve Lukather may have prompted a less ambitious musician to perpetually play it safe, something which Scott has absolutely failed to do” by Zavvi (Virgin Megastores) This Manchester born musician has early memories of composing music. His solo discography now boasts 10 albums and 35 singles. As a fanatical electric guitar player, Tim fuses his passion for eclectic instrumental virtuosity into a tropical adventure with commercial House, Drum and Bass, Trance, and Dubstep. His big vision to break the genre boundaries, free to start a guitar groove experiment. Initially influenced by Joe Satriani, Gary Moore, Steve Vai, Steve Lukather, Eric Clapton, and Jeff Beck as his childhood guitar heroes, using this inspiration, he dedicated his time to searching for a fresh sound. More lately influenced by Deamau5, Eric Prydz, Timmy Trumpet, CamelPhat and Fisher. Tim puts his unusual creativity down to the way he learns best, by jamming over the records he loves.

Tim played at my 30th Birthday bash. With the perfect balance of current & classic pop tunes, the live guitar adding that extra special touch. It was like being on holiday watching the sunset form the beach bar. A fabulous evening was had by all, thanks to the wonderful entertainment, I have already been recommending Tim to my friends.
