Scott Mulvahill is the complete package with Virtuoso on the bass

J-P Mauro - published on 04/25/17

With an altogether unique act

We fell in love with the styling of Scott Mulvahill as soon as this track started. Alone with his upright bass, Mulvahill has a unique act that combines virtuoso level bass work and a strong, accessible pop vocal.

What impressed us most was the way he plays the bass as a percussive instrument, knocking or slapping on the wooden surfaces to emit an almost bongo-drum sound. His arrangement of “Himalayas” is quite skillful, keeping the listener captive with jazzy licks and quick switches between plucking and bowing the thick strings.

Mulvahill’s songwriting has received honors from the International Songwriting Competition, John Lennon Songwriting Contest and American Songwriter Magazine’s 30th Anniversary Contest. He has worked as a studio musician on the albums of various artists and has performed with Allison Krauss, Bary Gibb, Bruce Hornsby, Peter Frampton and more.

A testament to his skill on the bass, Scott is currently touring with Ricky Scaggs’ legendary bluegrass band, Kentucky Thunder. He has held the position for three years. Kentucky Thunder also features him as a vocalist.
