Since 1991, keyboardist Scott Kinsey has been the secret weapon of Tribal Tech, one of the premier bands on the fusion scene. A remarkably distinctive soloist with a unique harmonic sensibility and a wholly inventive approach to synthesizers, Kinsey has an uncanny knack for making technology sound organic and orchestrating in the moment. As Tribal Tech ringleader Scott Henderson explains, “Kinsey has been such a big influence on the direction that Tribal Tech has taken. Before we met him all we really had was a band that played tunes the way they were written out. But Kinsey was a major reason for us getting to that point of being able to throw the charts away and just jam right in the moment, because he could do it so well and pull it off every time. It wasn’t until I played with Scott that I realized how loose it can be and still sound totally together. Because he would be pulling out so much cool stuff to listen to that you didn’t need a note of written music. Kinsey’s such a great improvising musician but he also brings a real sense of form and harmony to it so that you can just jam freely and know that it’s always gonna sound cool.” -
"Scott Kinsey has tremendous music skills, not just playing but producing and sound programming. He is very talented." --
