Acclaimed Young Guitarist Scott McKeon Sets New Album Release
Trouble features 12 new songs and contributions from Robbie McIntosh, renowned British guitarist and former member of The Pretenders. McIntosh has toured with Sir Paul McCartney and John Mayer, among others, and has done session work for Mark Knopfler, Roger Daltrey, Tori Amos and Norah Jones. The album also features vocals from David Ryan Harris from John Mayer's band. Of the album, McKeon says, "With Trouble, I wanted to be able to incorporate bluesy guitar soloing into a more soulful rock environment. I also wanted to be more disciplined with the tunes to move them from a riff-based style into proper songs. I feel this album is more balanced but still allows me the chance to cut loose."
Scott McKeon first picked up a guitar at the age of four and has devoted himself to the mastery of his craft ever since. At seven years old, McKeon made his debut on U.K. national television and in 1998, he earned Guitarist Magazine's "Young Guitarist of the Year" award. Most recently, McKeon's music has been used on Guitar Hero 5, the soundtrack for the show "LA Task Force" and in the soundtrack for the upcoming film, Rock Prophecies. - Wanna see him in action?
