Raised with mid-western charm in Clinton, Indiana, Abbi Scott has always had a passion for music. Growing up on traditional country and classic rock legends, Scott has cultivated her own unique southern-rock sound over the years.
How has growing up in Clinton, in the Midwest, influenced the music you write and perform?
Growing up in such a small town, it really influenced the music I write. I chose to write about things that were truly happening around me, whether it be first hand experiences or things that my close friends were experiencing. I truly embraced growing up in a rural environment and wrote a lot of my early music about that.
Which artists did you grow up listening to?
How has your family supported your music career?
My family has gone above and beyond for my musical dreams — they’ve supported me every single step of the way. I physically couldn’t do this without them.
You’ve said the stage is home to you. When did you start performing?
I started performing at the age of seven. I competed in my first County Fair talent show and won first place! I’ve always felt like the stage is where I belong.
What instruments do you play?
I play the guitar and I’m in the works of learning the Mandolin and Harmonica!
Favorite place to write?
My favorite places to write usually consist of a calm, serene environment with very little distractions. But usually just somewhere with a very “vibey environment.” I love writing in my living room where I have my guitars hanging on the wall!
