FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TRICKFISH AMPLIFICATION® WELCOMES Tim Scott
California, September 21, 2016
Trickfish Amplification welcomes journeyman bassist/vocalist Tim
Scott to the Trickfish family.
Trickfish is honored to welcome Seattle
based bassist, composer, producer and vocalist Tim Scott to the
ever expanding artist family.
Tim is a seasoned veteran that has
performed and or recorded with some of the most notable names in
the music business including: Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Billy
Preston, Dr. John, John Mayall and Jack Mack and the Heart
Attack, Tower of Power, Dave Mason, Robben Ford, Etta James, The
Boneshakers, El Chicano, The Grammy All Stars and his latest
project, Zen Blues Quartet, with internationally acclaimed
drummer and member of the Heartbreakers, Steve Ferrone. His R&B
roots are deep and his soulful singing makes him the complete
musician. His latest project, Red House "four of the baddest
players/singers in the Northwest, playing blues, R&B, soul &
funk with fiery, wild abandon; doing it "Their Way" has just
released their latest EP entitled "Over Yonder".
"We’re so pleased that Tim has joined
the Trickfish family" states Richard Ruse, Trickfish founder.
"Tim is not only a gifted bassist whose impeccable groove and
penchant for picking the right notes makes him unique, he’s also
a singer’s singer. His style has been likened to Donny Hathaway
and for those R&B aficionado’s that’s a high compliment. But, as
is the case with all of the Trickfish artists, most importantly
Tim is a warm and spiritual human being who shares his gifts
easily and often. It’s a big reason he’s played with a list of
artists that represent the very best our industry has to offer."
"I’ve known Richard for quite some
time, well over 20 years. I first met him when we played
together in the Tower of Power Rhythm Section
he was subbing for Rocco and I was singing and we just became
friends sharing in the force of nature known as Francis Rocco
states Tim. "We’ve
of course kept in touch and recently I realized it was time to
get a new rig and Richard’s
company came to mind. I stopped by a local music store to
audition the gear and was astounded at the organic sound and
tightness of the rig. Being an R&B influenced player I needed
something that was greasy, could get a little grit and sounded
authentic. I was blown away by the Trickfish rig! It has all the
attributes I was looking for and is the quickest amp I’ve ever
played through. I’m now playing through the Bullhead1K and two
SM112’s. It doesn’t hurt that it’s easy to move around,
versatile and fits in a car…I’m in heaven."

Tim met with his long-time friend, Rocco Prestia (founding
member and bassist with Tower of Power) to see their favorite
Las Vegas band, Santa Fe. Since Santana is in town playing an
extended engagement at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, about half
of his band was in attendance (including bassist Benny Rietveld,
drummer Dennis Chambers & percussionist Karl Perazzo). It was so
stupid how many amazing bass players there were, Santa Fe's
Blogmaster, Bobby Gladd decided he needed a picture to
commemorate the Bass-tastic Event.

“Farm Fur” All-Star Band
Photo by Bernard Baur
Steve Ferrone's "Farm Fur" All-Star Band: Seasoned
session cats load up on
groove-ladened tunes and deliver the goods.
The Players: Steve Ferrone, drums, Bernard Fowler, vocals; Alex
Ligertwood, vocals, guitar; Miles Joseph, guitar; Tim Scott,
bass, vocals; Dean Gant, keyboards; Tom Saviano, sax; Jason
Weber, sax; Randy Brecker, trumpet.
Material: Premier session cats and top-of-the-line sidemen make
Steve Ferrone’s “Farm Fur” All-Star Band a class act. Like a lot
of groups that consist of seasoned musicians, Farm Fur explores
jazz variations, soulful blues and groove-laden songs. In fact,
the grooves are so deep, the crowd is compelled to move and
sway. And, though the jam-filled songs may not be radio
friendly, hearing them live is a special treat. Indeed, it’s a
pleasure that every music lover should experience.
Musicianship: With players that have graced stages with the
Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, Santana, Beyonce, Eric Clapton,
Outkast, Madonna, David Bowie and on and on, the musicianship is
nothing short of extraordinary. Each player enjoys at least one
solo moment that highlights his chops and unfathomable skills.
And although, at times, those chops may seem a little familiar
they, nonetheless, are soul stirring.
Performance: One of the most remarkable things about players of
this caliber is the way they communicate while onstage. With
just a nod, or an almost imperceptible movement, they let each
other know when a break was coming and when it was their turn to
shine. This preternatural ability obviously comes from years of
experience, but it’s something that every band should try to
emulate. The result is a sound so tight there is never a moment
when the energy wanes or the groove dissipates.
Summary: Steve Ferrone put this band together for one simple
reason –– these guys love playing. And their love of music is
not only inspiring, it’s enchanting. A band like Farm Fur
doesn’t play that often because their work schedules are so
demanding. But, when they do play a local gig, you would be
doing yourself a large favor to catch them.
