This Friday’s Guest DJs: SCOTT ALLEN PROJECT

Scott Allen Project band 2019

Scott Allen Project is an Instrumental Progressive Hard Rock band based around Musician’s Institute (GIT) trained guitarist Scott Allen. He caught the guitar bug by discovering the magic of one Edward Van Halen at the age of 10. Scott dedicated his teen years to studying the electric guitar. Upon graduating high school he relocated south from his home of Sacramento to the fabled glitz of Hollywood.

After many shows together Frank Hannon of Tesla offered to produce the first Scott Allen Project album entitled What Lies Beyond Words. This album would be released in 2006 and would lead to the band getting radio play in Northern California, and to the band providing music to the KRXQ 98 Rock Bod Squad DVD. That same year Scott was chosen by the legendary Mike Varney to appear in his famous Guitar Player Spotlight column in Guitar Player Magazine.

Now in 2020, the Scott Allen Project is releasing a new EP, their fourth official release, entitled Escape Velocity. The choice to do an EP reflects the changing times where the album format is less central and shows a desire to try something new. Featuring the most progressive and diverse music to date and featuring special guest Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater/Sons of Apollo/Black Country Communion/Billy Idol) on keyboards and organ, Escape Velocity is the sound of a band just hitting its stride.

Tune in as the main man, Scott Allen hosts his second Guest DJ Show this week!
