Scott Sharrard

Visiting Artists

Scott began his music career in Wisconsin in the early ’90′s. He spent his teenage years attending Milwaukee’s prestigious High School of The Arts by day, while playing in clubs and touring by night. During that time, he played with local blues legends the Stokes, Willie Higgins, and Harvey Scales, as well as such international blues and jazz luminaries as Buddy Miles, Melvin Rhyne, and Clyde Stubblefield.

After rising to the top of the local circuit by the age of 19, Scott moved to New York City with his band, The Chesterfields. They recorded and released three albums, toured nationally, and were mentored by Ahmet Ertegun, Russ Titlemen, Rob Thomas and Dr. John.

Since then, Scott joined the Gregg Allman Band as a touring guitarist, being hailed as “Gregg Allman’s secret weapon” by Glide magazine. Scott has a close musical relationship with Allman and continues to tour with the Gregg Allman Band today. In his solo career, Scott released three albums (Dawnbreaker, Analog/Monolog, and Ante Up) to critical acclaim.

Today, Scott plays in the CKS Band with seasoned touring and session organist Bruce Katz, and Levon Helm Band drummer Randy Ciarlante. His latest endeavor, Scott Sharrard and the Brickyard Band, released their self titled debut in 2012 and embarked on a national tour soon after.

Over the years, Scott has also performed with such artists as The Allman Brothers, Levon Helm, Amy Helm, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, Jennifer Johns, Marshall Crenshaw, Kelley Hunt, Katy Pfaffl, Brian Charette, and Jay Collins & The Kings County Band.
