Scott McKeon has given a lifetime of dedication to his craft as a guitarist. Initially inspired by his dad’s love of blues, soul and rock music, he took up the guitar at the age of four and has developed a reputation as one of the UK’s most in-demand guitarists, both in the studio and performing live. Raised on a diet of Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran and Chuck Berry, Scott was exposed to his parent’s vast record collection, allowing his musical palette to mature beyond his years. By the time he was eight, Scott was playing a full-size Strat and was the face of a Fender ad campaign to inspire a new young generation of guitarists. At just 13 years old, Scott was fronting his own blues band, playing most weekends in pubs and clubs around the south coast of England.
Currently performing in Sir Tom Jones’ band, Scott has also had the pleasure of playing with the likes of Eric Clapton, James Arthur, Emeli Sande, Lana Del Ray, Derek Trucks, Gary Clark Jr, Van Morrison, Andreya Triana, Joe Bonamassa, Ed Sheeran, Rebecca Ferguson and many, many more. Scott also has a signature fuzz pedal and signature pickups, modelled on his ’62 Strat.
McKeon has garnered acclaim from the likes of Guitarist Mag, Guitar World and Relix Mag.
