Scott DL was born and raised in the American Midwest but the music that caught his ear and imagination from a very early age came from Britain. A lifetime in music has given him a chance to tour the United States, release six cds of his own music and show others the joy of expressing the music that is already inside them. In 2018, he relocated to Britain to expand his musical horizons across the Atlantic. While living in the U.K. Scott played many shows as a soloist and led The Scott DL Band, an international lineup made up of Scott DL ( American)- guitars /vocals, Peter Nemesvari (Hungarian)- keyboards and the (British) rhythm section of Paul Arthurs- drums and Mark Nye- bass. Scott built a recording studio (Crackerbox Studio) in Cheltenham, England , served as music mentor for Balcarras Academy in Cheltenham and released 2 singles on Spotify as " Enlightenment Saloon" with longtime friend and musical collaborator, lyricist D.E. Pals before returning to the U.S. in July 2021. Currently he is dividing his time between performances, teaching, writing and recording new music for Enlightenment Saloon and building a new recording studio in the pastoral setting in his home state of Iowa.
