- SCOTT McALLISTER
SCOTT McALLISTER is riding high following the launch of his debut
album Love Is Easy on June 28 at Hexham Bowling Club near Newcastle.
The audience at the now-famous Horseshoe Bend Roundup got a bit of a
shock when the spotlight went on and Scott launched himself from one
of the tables in the auditorium after the first song before joining
the band on stage.
Love Is Easy is a top-class CD and highlights Rob Wilsonís
production (Longhorn Studios) and contribution to the line-up of
musicians including Michel Rose, Mick Albeck, Peter Figures, Garry
Steel and Tim Dutton. Mastering was done by Jeff McCormack (The
Music Cellar) and design by Glen Hannah (Goonga Design).
Scott started entering talent quests in 2001 and began performing
weekly at the Horseshoe Bend Roundup where he developed his
stagecraft alongside professional musicians and artists such as Alby
Pool, Rob Wilson, Bruce McCumstie and Lisa White. Scott became a
regular at the Roundup and in 2003 went on to win the State section
of the BBX National Singing Championships at Newcastle.
During 2004 Scott went on the road as a featured artist in the
Tivoli Tour of Queensland, working alongside former Deltone, Wayne
Cornell and Brian Davies from Bandstand days.
Scott consolidated his experience during the 2005 Tamworth Country
Music Festival by winning three talent quests: Toyota Country Music
Muster (Country Rock Section), Services Club and Court House Hotel.
He then backed up by winning the Country Rock Section of the Hexham
Bowling Club Country Talent Quest.
Now Newcastle-based, Scott was born in Townsville in 1979 and first
began singing in the choir at school. Itís been a long journey to
his Love Is Easy album, and a fitting testament to his hard work and
