Born in Central New York, Scott Ferrare began playing the bass as a teenager. He played in numerous bands in high school, sang in the chorus and choir, and learned as much music as he could. His biggest influences at this time were Pink Floyd, Yes, Jaco Pastorius, Led Zeppelin, Queensryche and The Beatles.
Soon Scott was writing and recording his own solo music and later graduate at SUNY New Paltz with a Bachelors degree in Music Theory and Music Composition. He studied composition with Shafer Mahoney and Ping Jin, Bass with Lynn Seaton and Geoff Smith, and jazz with Mark Dziuba and Vinnie Martucci. All throughout this time Scott also wrote, performed and recorded with many colleagues and local musicians. It was also in New Paltz where he found his love of electronic music and the recording process with computer music software. His style was further influenced by Classical, Jazz and Funk as well.
Scott then relocated to New York City and two years later had graduated from Hunter College with a Masters degree in Music Education. Next to dozens and dozens of classes ranging from Advanced Music Theory and Electronic Music to Composition and Pedagogy, Scott also learned many other instruments while becoming more skilled on the guitar and with song arranging.
He then taught music for five years at the secondary level as he composed music at home at night. He released two solo CD's on which he composed, played, produced, and recorded all of the instruments, Volume 1 and Volume 2. Scott's music has also been used for many episodes of the series, eScape.

Scott currently lives in Seattle, teaching music by day and writing music at night. He is finishing a another solo CD that he plans to release within the coming months.
