Scott Collins is wildly eclectic, blazingly virtuosic, and fearless in making bold connections between far-flung musical influences. His playing is both finely-honed and utterly unpredictable, whether shredding on distorted electric, sculpting ambience with digital processing, or navigating lines on a bare-bones acoustic. His work (as both a player, teacher, and writer) draws on deep creative, conceptual, and philosophical influences, but never loses sight of its emotional impact.”
