Biography: Scott Allen is a Musicians Institute (G.I.T) graduate whose band Scott Allen Project has opened for a number of national acts such as: Michael Schenker (Scorpions, UFO, MSG), Gary Hoey, Eric Martin of Mr. Big, Dave Maniketti of Y&T, Planet X (which featured Tony MaCalpine and Virgil Donati of The Steve Vai Band, and Derek Sherinian, formerly of Dream Theater), Zoppi, Frank Hannon of Tesla, and countless other bands. In 2009 Scott began his highly successful Shred on Arrival clinic series which combines live performances with guitar instruction. In addition Scott also teaches 70+ private lessons weekly.

In 2006 Scott Allen released his critically acclaimed debut album What Lies Beyond Words via: Guitar Nine Records, Amazon.com, Metal Rendezvous Records, CD Baby, New Artists Online, Indie Music Store Online, Wayside Music, I-Tunes, and many other digital distributors. Scott has just released his follow up album entitled From the Blindside which has succeeded in pushing his music to a new level. With good early reviews, and a featured spot on Metal Express Radio’s Daily Album Premiere and 12th hour shows, From the Blindside, is well on the way to topping its predecessor in terms of critical acclaim and radio play. In addition to the new Scott Allen Project album Scott is also featured on the new compilation CD from Mad Guitar Records entitled Melodic Soloists, which includes 17 tracks from some of the world’s finest guitarists. Scott has been featured in Mike Varney’s Spotlight Column in Guitar Player Magazine. He has also received coverage in Northeast In-tune Magazine, Rise Music Magazine, Progressive Newsletter, Strutter Magazine, and Unsigned Music Magazine, and Tarkus Magazine. Scott has been interviewed by Chaotic Riffs Magazine, Guitar 9, The Rock Zone, and Fireworks Magazine UK.

Tracks from What Lies Beyond Words have been featured on Ernie Ball Radio, on the Ernie Ball Music Man website. Scott Allen Project has also received radio play on KRXQ 98 Rock, FTM Pod Cast network, The Refinery Rock Radio, Progrock Radio on Progrock.com, Metal Express Radio, Indie Connection Radio Show on X FM in New York, The Fusion Show on WCSB in Cleveland, and the For the Love of Guitar radio show in Romania. Scott Allen Project provided the music for the KRXQ 98 Rock “Bod Squad” DVD. Scott writes instructional columns on the guitar websites Guitar9.com, Chops from Hell, Guitarz-For-Ever.com, and Shredaholic.com.
