Singer/songwriter and musician extraordianaire Darrell Scott has been busy this year.
He released a 2-disc CD, “A Crooked Road,” to critical acclaim in May.
He’s been touring with Robert Plant (lead singer of Led Zeppelin).
He laid down a great cover of “Texas Cookin’” for the Guy Clark Tribute CD.
He’s also been in the studio working on a new record, “Long Road Home,” due for release early next year.
He’s finishing this week with a swing through Texas for some solo acoustic shows.
“I’ll be at Dosey Doe’s in the Woodlands on Tuesday, then two nights at the Cactus Cafe in Austin,” Scott said on the phone while driving through rural Illinois to a gig in Wisconsin Saturday. “I’ll be at Poor David’s Pub on Friday night. I’ve heard it’s the listening room in Dallas.”
The Kentucky native lived in East Gary, Ind., until age 11, when his family moved to Southern California. His father, Wayne, was a part-time musician who drafted Scott and his four brothers into a band, playing gigs up and down the California coast.
Scott left the band and went to Boston, where he earned a degree in English. He settled in Nashville in 1995.
Now one of Music City’s most sought after artists and producers, Scott has worked with the best, including Plant, Clark, Garth Brooks, Faith Hill, Brad Paisley, Rodney Crowell and Alison Krauss.
“I quit doing session work about 10 years ago, but I’ll always be available to work with friends like Guy, Rodney and Robert,” he said.
While in the studio and out on the road performing, Scott has become aware of a change in his voice. It’s deeper, richer and more layered.
“I’ve noticed my voice has been getting lower,” he explained. “The lower part seems to be getting lower all the time, but I’ve been able to keep the upper register the same. I have no idea what I’ve done to make it that way.”
Poor David’s Pub is located at 1313 South Lamar. The doors open at 7:15 p.m., with Scott’s show starting at 8:15 p.m. Tickets are $22. For more information, call 214-565-1295 or log on to www.poordavidspub.com.
