Scott Walker grew up in London where he was raised in a household filled with music. By high school he’d started his first band, Hard Options, and while they played with passion, there wasn’t initially much talent. That changed when they decided to stop playing other people’s music and start writing their own. Suddenly they found their voice and at their second gig they were signed to a London indie label.
In the ‘90’s Scott moved to St. Paul, Minnesota. By 1996 he and fellow London native, Katy Vernon, had formed The Camdens. They began as a duo, but soon added a drummer and bassist and started gaining local success. During their years together they were lucky enough to play all the Twin Cities major venues, ranging from First Avenue and Fine Line to the main stage at Taste of Minnesota. Their debut CD Half Way Around the World made the college radio charts and as well as airtime on local stations.
Following The Camden’s, Scott began working solo, adding singing to his usual guitar and songwriter role. To him, it’s all about the songs. He’s not into fads and believes good music maintains its appeal. If a song sounds as great on an acoustic guitar as it does with a full band, that’s his test of a good song.
