Scott Varney's song 'So different so the same' though not about himself describes him best. Scott's music and personality bring something rather unique to the table yet so familiar he makes you feel right at home. A bass player from the age of 14 playing everything from punk & hardcore to funk and jazz Scott's current solo project is where he has truly found his way. Performing solo at well over 200 shows since Sept of 2002 Scott is planing on making his way up and down the east coast from his home in Williamsburg VA to wherever else his original sound takes him. The best way to describe Scott Varney is as a modern day one man band with the stylings of Victor Wooten, Ani Difranco and Bobby McFerrin wrapped up into one. Scott brings this sound together with his voice, six string bass guitar and various percussion instruments even from time to time 'Looping' his vocals and instruments to create the sound of a full band. Scott's ability to improvise allows his music to change from show to show keeping a quiet coffeehouse's laid-back mood intact as well as setting the dance vibe of larger clubs free. Scott is influenced by a variety of musicians, for example: Victor Wooten, Keller Williams, Michael Franti, Bob Marley, Ani Difranco, Paul Simon, Bobby McFerrin and many, many others. Scott takes his outlook on life and the world around him and let's it shine with his positive lyrics and upbeat sound. Scott's sound has been well received at many of the venues he has played.
