Singer and songwriter Scott McLaughlin grew up in a small, Southern California town surrounded by dairy farms, ranches and horse shows listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers Band on the radio. His passion for country took off like a rocket after receiving his first guitar as a gift from his father at age 13. Heavily influenced by Garth Brooks’ album “In Pieces” and Fleetwood Mac’s “The Dance”, Scott began writing and performing his own music in high school. After graduating, he moved south to attend California State University Long Beach where he was awarded a B.S. in Business. While he worked on his degree, Scott continued to hone his music and vocal talent forming several bands and actively performing throughout Southern California. Ultimately encourage by his parents, Scott took a leap of faith and dedicated all of his time and efforts to his budding music career. Scott has passionately pursued music as a livelihood for the past 5 years. Fronting his self-titled band, The Scotty Mac Band, Scott has released a six song EP, "Messin Around", that stylistically blends the pop hooks and driving sound of contemporary country while retaining the story telling and instrumentation of the classic country roots he grew up on. His music is heavily influenced by artists like Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Justin Moore, Brad Paisley, and Blake Shelton.
Scott has performed annually at the OC Fair, has funded two tours in the US, has performed side stage at country festivals alongside acts such as Brantley Gilbert, David Nail, and Little Big Town, and opened for Mark Chesnutt in 2014. His 2015 calendar has him opening for Jake Owen and Parmalee at the Night in the Country Festival in Yerington, Nevada.
