By the time he was sixteen he was already performing in clubs in New York City and studying jazz. With a passion for improvising and composition, he later attended and graduated from New School University in Manhattan while maintaining a hectic lifestyle of creating, touring and recording with the successful instrumental group ulu.

For nearly a decade he traveled the countryside from coast to coast and every point in-between, clearly marking his own place within the jam circuit, not to mention developing a stage presence that can reach the nosebleed seats in any stadium! The use of vintage keyboards such as the Fender Rhodes, Hammond organ, Hohner clavinet and Moog synthesizer have helped to shape his distinctive sound live and on all four ulu albums – ulu (1998), Live at the Wetlands (2000), What’s the Deal (2001), and Nerve (2003). Along the way Scott has shared the stage with John Scofield, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Soulive, Mickey Hart and De La Soul to name a few. Scott is currently a member of the esteemed Pink Floyd Tribute band, The Machine, where he has continued his touring lifestyle and passion for analog keyboards. In 2008 he was officially endorsed by Moog, and has had the opportunity to play his beloved Mini-Moog Voyager in front of thousands of fans in theatres across North America, Europe, and Asia.

Scott also appeared in the April 2010 issue of KEYBOARD magazine giving a short masterclass of synth licks and tricks. In his downtime, Scott has also honed a fine craft of songwriting, using an interesting blend of folk, rock and jazz elements along with introspective lyrics and his own heartfelt vocals. He reveals these abilities on his debut album, Solitude Speaks (2003). Further exploration continues on an acoustic collaboration with Katy Pfaffl titled Woven (2005). The highly electric Magnify (2007), engineered and produced by Rob Harari, was a step in a new pop flavored direction.

Scott’s latest recording, Fracture (2010), showcases the simplicity and strength of his current group – the Scott Chasolen Trio (SC3). The album delivers a sparkling collection of 12 new songs driven by the warmth and power of Chasolen's vocals, and a healthy balance of acoustic piano and analog keyboards. From the rocking edge of “Novocaine” through the sexy groove of “There She Goes Again” to the gospel passion of “Don’t Give Up”, Fracture takes the listener on a journey of diverse influences and styles, while staying true to Scott’s signature sound. The SC3 can be heard playing music from all of Scott’s mentioned recordings in and around New York City at the Living Room, Rockwood Music Hall and the Bitter End.
