About Scott Kurt

Scott Kurt grew up in America’s Rust Belt, and the grittiness of his roots is evident in every aspect of his music. From his debut album, “Ragged But Right,” recorded with his band Memphis 59, to his first solo effort “Down This Road,” he captures the essence of hard living, hard work and hard times in deeply personal lyrics delivered by a whiskey-tinged barroom voice wrapped up inside a whole lot of full-tilt country-rock guitar. 

From Tool City, USA to Music City, USA
His latest single, “American Man,” is an anthemic tribute to Scott’s son-of-a-factory-worker beginnings. “My home town (Meadville, Pennsylvania) was known as Tool City, USA,” he says. “Before the industry started dying out in the 80s, it had more tool and die shops than anyplace else in the U.S. ‘American Man’ tells the story of what it was like from one man’s point of view when one of those factories closed down – from how to tell his wife to hearing his father’s voice in his head telling him, ‘you just can’t keep a good man down.’”



“Steve Earle, Tom Petty, and George Jones put in a blender”
-Jason Warburg, The Daily Vault

“Rockin guitar, pedal steel, bar songs – what more do you want?”
-Todd Godbout, My Joog

“Scott Kurt’s vocals float with a sound that reminds me of Natalie Maines in male form.”
-Jeff McMahon, Twangville

“Think Tom Petty meets Rascal Flats.”
-Kelly Jew, On Tap Magazine
