SCOTT CALDERWOOD

Growing up in a musical household, Scott’s passion for performing began at the age of 4. He would perform the greatest hits of the Bee Gees and Elvis for family and friends, using the fireplace hearth as his stage. By age 10, Scott had taken to drumming, which would remain his passion throughout his youth, leading to his graduation from McNally Smith School of Music in percussion in 1993. It wasn’t until 1997, when Scott was invited to replace a departing singer in the band Beggar’s Canyon, that he discovered two things: One he had what it takes to be a lead singer / front man. Two, he was blessed with a natural tenor voice. Embracing this transition of roles, Scott immersed himself into improving his vocal abilities, and within 2 years co-founded the successful touring act Jake Squad. Scott would later front Big Machine, and finally Phoenix for 9 years before joining Arch Allies. With his primary influences being Steve Perry, Jon Bon Jovi and Tony Lewis (The Outfield), Arch Allies brings him the opportunity to showcase his vocal ability to the bands ever-expanding fanbase.
