Scott Free, the queer-rock singer/songwriter extraordinaire, has quickly become one the country's leading openly-gay male artists. His sometimes humorous, sometimes angry, always touching songs of queer life have gained him acclaim in both gay and straight media across the country. His 1999 release 'The Living Dead' was nominated for 4 Gay/Lesbian American Music Awards. He joins an infamous lists of artists who's works have been banned by government agencies (the City Hall of Chicago in the winter of 2001). He hosts the annual QUEER IS FOLK FESTIVAL at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, now in it's 5th year. He is currently the host of HOMOLATTE a weekly queer performance series at Soul Cafe in Chicago. Like all true rock & rollers, Scott got his start in gospel music - he sang falsetto soprano for the Lavender Light Gospel Choir of New York City. His early forays into rap produced his first single 'Beat The Rap', who's video aired on Black Entertainment Television. He debuted his hardcore punk songs with a trio at Homocore-Chicago's Fourth Anniversary show at the historic Fireside Bowl.
