Scott Steele began singing and performing at the age of eight in South Louisiana. He was given his first guitar then and after six months of teaching himself how to play using a book of old Hank songs, he was hooked on country music. Around this time he began playing and singing at church and very soon he was comfortable playing and singing in front of a large audience. He took up playing piano at eleven years old and at twelve wrote his first song while playing the piano after church one Sunday. It was then that he knew song writing would be his true heart's desire and Nashville began to call.
In 2004 his first album, "One In A Million was complete. Scott Steele has played many venues from Texas to Mississippi including Gruene country hall in Gruene Texas, The Farmer’s Daughter in San Antonio Texas, Bear Creek Saloon in Montpelier, Louisiana, The Hammond Music Festival in Hammond, Louisiana.. and many bars and honky-tonks playing covers and squeezing in originals along the way. His personality lends to his stage presence and his consistent ability to connect with the audience is something to see.
With a blend of rock, country, blues, and a lot of soul to go with it, his baritone vocals makes every performance memorable. His innate ability to tell a story through a song makes you feel as if you were there. Audiences love the performance and always want more! If you like the legends or modern day country, you are sure to get a lot of both in Scott Steele. Musical influence from artists such as Keith Whitley, Garth Brooks, The Eagles to more current artists like Ronnie Dunn and Eric Church is all blended into one unique sound.
