LEDFOOT - Damned (2010)
First signed to a major label at the age of 19, he has worked with some of the music industries greatest and has seen many changes. Ledfoot classifies himself as Gothic Blues, and his masterful songwriting and haunting voice portray the idea of this new genre to perfection. His guitar of choice is an acoustic guitar, which in today’s world of electric guitar riffs and ease of use is unusual. The way he plays is amazing with sounds deep and dark. Conjuring images of pain, desperation and the destruction of how he perceives the world to be. Playing in B Minor and using steel picks he has been destroying so many strings that can’t keep up with the punishment that he forces upon the beautifully classic instrument, so he is getting one custom made. In 1989 he started the ledgendary The Havalinas with Smutty Smiff (Rockats, 13kats) og Chalo Quitana (Cruzados, Bob Dylan, Social Distortion). Bruce Springsteen has recorded Tim Scott's song ”High Hopes” on Bloodbrothers EP og DVD. his new concept is called Ledfoot. Ledfoot because there is nothing more here than Tim on 12 string guitar and stomp and some great songs! The album The Devils Songbook was released Autumn 2008.
The album "Damned" is special in several ways, Ledfoot has released a double album. One CD called "Damned if I do" is recorded with only Ledfoot and his 12 string Taylor guitar and stomp. The other CD "Damned if I dont" are the same songs recorded with legendary guitarplayer Ronni Le Tekro and Ledfoot together with some band mates. The album has got raving reviews in Norway. Sivert Hoyem from Madrugada is singing on Wicked State Of Mind on disc 2.
