Scott Joss (born 1962) is a songwriter, guitarist, mandolin player, singer, and fiddle player primarily in the American Country music tradition[1] who has performed with Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam, Pete Anderson, Tiny Moore, Roy Nichols, Dusty Wakeman, and Jana Jae[1] and is a successful solo artist.[2][3][4]

Born in Long Beach, California in 1962 and raised in Redding, California, Joss learned to play fiddle from Jana Jae, the one-time wife and fiddle player for Buck Owens and his Buckaroos. Praised as "the heir to the Bakersfield throne" because of his early association with Bakersfield Sound musicians,[5] Joss' playing has been key to hit tunes scored by Merle Haggard & The Strangers and Dwight Yoakam.[3]
