Scott Harnish on SoundBetter

I am 20th century rock stylist. From glam to grunge, lead, rhythm, acoustic, and bass guitars. Recent studio credits include Ellison Scott, Maurice Aucoin, Kyle Boudreau, and Elise Besler

While I'm new here on SoundBetter, I am a working musician with decades of studio & live experience. I studied audio production in Toronto at the Harris Institute in the mid 1990s, and have produced & engineered my own releases as a singer-songwriter. Additionally I have produced releases for several other artists, most notably Elise Besler's "Lean In" (2016), and "Truth" (2018), both of which were nominated for a Nova Scotia Music Week Award, and an East Coast Music Award.

Additional fun fact, I have performed as Gene Simmons in Nova Scotia based KISS tribute band Dressed 2 Kill since 2011.
