About Scotty Young

Scotty Young is 33 years old and has been playing the bass guitar for 19 of those years. Scotty recently re-enrolled into college as a music major at Northeast Mississippi Community College and plans to further his musical education at either University of Memphis or the University of Southern Mississippi.
While at Northeast, Scotty has had the opportunity to earn a scholarship playing for a band known as Campus Country, which is a performance based group. Also, Scotty is a member of the college Jazz band and sings with the chorus ensemble.
Off campus Scotty performs with the Smooth Jazz band "Suave" and Contemporary Christian band Filled X Stream, which he is the leader of. In past years Scotty has played in a club band (Shagadoo) performing Rock, R&B, Pop, and Funk styles and he also played club dates with country artist Darryl Worley.
All of Scotty's playing, so far, has been on the electric bass but he is now in the process of learning to play the upright or double bass. Scotty recently bought a restored Hofner 3/4 upright and is very excited to add it to his collection. Other basses are a Modulus Quantum 5 and Kubicki Factor.
Scotty is very thankful for all his experiences and enjoys every moment, on and off stage, he is able to play his prized instrument.
