Scott Hallgren is a Silver Telly & Golden CINE award-winning composer and musician born in Virginia, and as a military brat moved to multiple states, both on and off US Air Force bases. An early interest in music led him to study jazz piano and arranging at the University of Miami (Florida). After graduation, Scott relocated to Nashville to pursue his dream of working as a recording and touring musician at a world-class level. Soon after arriving, he was invited to go on tour with pop country artist and multiple Grammy winner Steve Wariner. During the next decade, Scott served as Donna Summer’s musical director and pianist.

He also toured with Margaret Becker, The Wilkinsons, and Fernando Ortega, after his stint in Wariner's band. He traveled to more than a dozen countries on three continents, performing on concert stage and broadcast, supporting other artists such as: Sir Elton John, Aaron Neville, Andrae Crouch, Gloria Estefan, Ricky Skaggs, Eddy Arnold, Brian Littrell (of Backstreet Boys), David Foster, Larry Gatlin, and Marc Antony. After touring, Scott decided to focus on his composing and arranging skills. Working with local and national filmmakers over the next few years, Scott has since scored movies that have been accepted at numerous film festivals worldwide.

Of note, "Sith'D," a short Star Wars spoof, won Best Comedy at Comic-Con (2006), and "Gracie: diary of a coma patient" (2007) won festival awards for director Jeff Wedding, and received much critical acclaim for Scott's musical score. Scott's varied talents as an arranger, composer and performer have been featured on albums by Donna Summer, This Is My America (Various Artists), Monte Montgomery, Seay, Leif Shires, and on the movie soundtracks of Smart People and London Tango. Recently, Scott has written dozens of instrumental pieces, including a suite of tangos (the Porteña Suite, dedicated to Diana Holland & Tango Nashville), been commissioned to write scores for two short films (performed live at Christ Church Cathedral), as well as composed and freely improvised jazz pieces on the acclaimed "Live In Studio 'C'" program on WPLN, all featuring some of the finest musicians in the world.
