Introducing Scott Petito

Scott produced, performed on, mixed and mastered my CDs
"Wing'd With Hopes" and "The Goldenrod"

Scott's resume reads like a "who's who" of the music world: he's worked with James Taylor, The Band, Keith Richards, Chick Corea, Dave Brubeck, Jack DeJhonette, Aine Minogue, Pete Seeger, Jay Unger and Molly Mason (background music for many of Ken Burns' documentaries) and many others in the folk and jazz world. He also is a member of The Fugs and performs with his partner, Leslie Ritter. 

He is primarily known for his producing, mixing and mastering of CDs, but he is also a musician. His main instrument is bass, but he is also adept at the piano, guitar, percussion and cello. 

The first CD I did with Scott was the "Wing'd With Hopes" CD. It was a best seller on CD Baby in the Renaissance category for awhile. It also received a lot of airplay in the USA and abroad. Recording the CD lead to winning a grant from the New York Foundation of the Arts to record another CD of my original songs, "The Goldenrod" (and was an editor's choice on CD Baby when it first came out).

Check out some of the other great artists that Scott has worked with that are perhaps (?) in the same ballpark/genre as my own CDs:

This is a beautiful song he recorded with Leslie Ritter (on YouTube): If Mary Knew

He records at NRS Recording Studio in Catskill, NY.
