John Kerningham Sidney Scott is a wonderful jazz singer who has given a great deal of pleasure to audiences in Canada, United States, Europe and the Middle East.
Scott was born in Buffalo, N.Y. where, at the age of 15, he began is musical studies. He later enlisted in the Army and subsequently became a member of a band formed to entertain American troupes in Europe.
He later became the leader of that group of very fine musicians. Shortly after his discharge from the Army, Johnny decided to take up residence in Montreal, Canada, where he has lived and practiced his craft for approximately 35 years.
The ensuing years proved this very fine Artist to be a versatile and talented performer who is equally at ease performing Pop music, R&B, Blues and of course, jazz.
His exceptional vocal styling, rich baritone voice, and his unique style on the tenor saxophone, allows him to captivate his audiences and leave them begging for more.
