tom james scott

"Tom James Scott is a young classically trained guitarist, a mainstay of the improvising collective CYRK. Tom's influences stretch far and wide, touching upon aspects of traditional music, improvisation, vocal music, composition, and field recording to name but a few. These 5 slices of acoustic alchemy are well formed compositions for acoustic guitar, where the wealth of folk guitar has been distilled through a minimalist mind set to create some of the most beautiful elemental melodic lines that take the listener on a journey of meditative contemplation." bo'weavil
