Grab The Cat Productions is the home of Guitarist, Singer/Songwriter, Engineer and Producer Scotty McWalter.
I’m an experienced guitarist seeking a primarily original band that likes to play some choice covers as well. I have cultivated my own style over the years but my primary influences include: Train, Gin Blossoms, Counting Crows, Ingram Hill, Alice in Chains, Pat McGee, Edwin McCain, Keith Urban, Live, Nine Days, Maroon 5… And I’m obviously looking for a group where these influences fit in.
I’m seeking a serious project with people that share the same goals and dedication to creating their music, and have the experience and knowledge to know how to do things “Right” in the business. I’m looking for a group that is or has a strong desire to be active in the bizz, perform often and put the time and effort into the craft to produce a strong, tight, and professional live sound.
I’m ultimately looking to complete a 4 piece group but I’m open to other configurations. I have been a part of many different groups in the past including a few long time locals.
I’m a down to earth player who knows when to play and when not to play and knows how to use my tones and effects to color but not overwhelm. I’ve been told I have a great sense for where to fit in the pocket and dynamics and that I have great tone.
In addition to writing and recording his own material, Scotty performs with a handful of Denver’s long standing original rock bands... Tequila Mockingbird, The Case, Kieth Hogan Band, Burning Abigail...
Scotty grew up in New England exposed to many types of musicians and musical styles. He has been playing guitar, singing and writing songs since his early teens. Scotty's musical career and interests have carried him from Boston to Jacksonville, Orlando, Phoenix and finally landing in Colorado. From 2002-2010 Scotty founded and fronted the local Denver based band Burning Abigail. Over the last 20 years, Scotty has performed in many bands performing a wide variety
of music, and once performed with Adrian Belew in the early 90’s.
Scotty spent his 20's working as a professional recording engineer and continues to devote his life to making and playing music today.
