- GRAMMY® Recognized -
On Unisoul Records
With multiple #1 radio singles and GRAMMY recognized as an artist, producer, composer and studio engineer, Scott Marvill has become a premiere “go-to” guy for established artists and up and comers looking for someone easy to work with any bring many years of experience to the table.
With the constant push from other artists the time was right to launch his solo career, open Freeport Jazz Studio, get busy recording and release some material. Initially he engaged Jeff Lorber, Chuck Loeb and Andy Snitzer to perform on his early compositions. His goal? To make music reflecting his coming up in Philadelphia where he stayed busy as a studio session guitarist, performing, attending Combs College of Music, and teaching privately.
It all started at home growing up in a musical house. His Dad was by hobby a jazz drummer and his Godfather played jazz guitar. Many nights were spent with his Dad traveling PA, NJ, DEL, and NY following big bands and contemporary jazz artists. The next morning he would imitate what he heard. Some times on drums starting at age 7 or guitar beginning around 12. They say roots run deep. His Grandfather made history performing live on the first televised musical performance in 1939 at the New York Worlds Fair. He performed and recorded mostly on fiddle with country greats and even did some Broadway acting with Bob Hope and others.
Marvill being self-taught really has allowed him to develop his own style. As he progressed in the Philly scene he set out to learn to read and understand music theory. He soon found himself with 40-45 music students per week where he shared his knowledge but also life lessons with his young students which garnered calls from their parents thanking him.
His open friendly personality has helped him build a solid base of recording clients be it a single bass or guitar track to a full composition and production to a radio-ready product.
He has shared the stage and studio with rising artists, legends and Grammy award winners in the jazz community such as Bob James, Kirk Whalum, Gerald Albright, Chuck Loeb, Jeff Lorber, Andy Snitzer, Marion Meadows, Nils, Bob Baldwin, Chris Godber, Dee Lucas, Tower Of Power, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Special EFX, Grover Washington Jr. and the list goes on.
