Born and raised in Detroit, MI, Randy Scott drew early inspiration from his father’s vinyl collection, and began learning guitar chords from a relative at age 11. After graduation from the Guitar Institute, he spent years struggling to make an impact in the music business and grew increasingly frustrated. Eventually, Scott stopped playing completely and sold every guitar he had. “When I stopped playing music, all I knew was that I wanted to get far away from it. I cut my hair, worked for a computer company and turned all my radio stations to AM talk radio. I felt that the music world had let me down, so I wanted to distance myself from it.” Nine years later, Scott was waiting for some friends at a restaurant when he wandered into a Guitar Center. The store manager heard him playing and suggested he enter their annual King of the Blues competition, the nationwide search for the next great undiscovered blues guitar player. He entered and went on to beat out over 4,000 contestants nationwide and five fellow finalists at House of Blues Los Angeles to be crowned the 4th Annual King of The Blues. Since then, Randy has opened for Paul Rodgers, Edgar Winter, Tedeschi-Trucks Band, Grand Funk's Mark Farner, Robben Ford and other notables. He was recently voted "Best Upcoming Blues Artist" by Ameriblues.com. Scott’s debut album Out Of The Blue, out May 14, marks his triumphant return to his first love and passion: music.

Rooted deep in a psychedelic past, a time when the Allman Brothers and Parliament Funkadelic brought us to the bayou and beamed us up to the Mothership, MOONROOF emerged from the stardust in the year 2012 and landed in the heart of downtown Los Angeles with a flight case full of vibratory healing. The blues made them tough, the funk brought “the stuff,” big bites of jazz for those who dug class, and they made it poppy so you could shake your ass. Now MOONROOF is rising, with fertile grounds for a new sound that only these four have found. Singer Ethan Fox Tucker sprouted from the fungal forests of Portland, Oregon with a keen ear and fully loaded mutton-funk bass chops. Guitarist Tyler Nuffer, a San Diegan blues ripper, will have mastered the guitar by age thirty-three, guaranteed, only ten more years to seal the deed. Jake Brougham finds new tunings, using blues, rock and roll, and African grooves to set a San Fran oceanic mood. Slam McAdam hits hard, really fucking hard, a metal man in a jazz can, the best beats in the Southland. Dig. Now dig deeper.
