Toronto, Ontario, Canada

As engineer/producer/vocalist/bassist Shane Scott has made a name for himself on the Toronto music scene, winning the Canadian MapleBlues award for "Bassist of the Year 2003" and responsible for over 30 full-length recordings to date. Two receiving Juno awards, two of which have received nominations for “Blues Album of the Year” Juno Awards, “Blues Album of the Year” Canadian Independent Awards, “New Blues Artist of the Year” Maple Blues Awards And "Winner of the CBC’s New Galaxy Award".

Shane had become one of the hardest working bass players on the Toronto scene. He started playing the bass 1978 at the age of 13. He purchased the Muddy "Mississippi" Waters Live album at the age of 15 and he's been hooked on the blues ever since. He was a member of the legendary Jack Dekeyzer Band for two years and the David Rotundo Band for ten years, touring Canada, Europe and parts of the U.S.

Throughout the 80's and into the 90's Shane was lead singer/bassist of his own blues/rock band Stagefright later renamed Lennies Habit.

Shane plays with a powerful but simple approach. Shane’s main influences on bass are Willie Dixon, Larry Taylor And James Jamison which can be heard in his playing. During his time with the Jack Dekeyzer Band, he also had the great privilege of playing with Muddy Waters drummer “Willie Big Eyes Smith” and opened up for Rod Piazza and the Mighty Flyers, B.B. King and Buddy Guy.
