Scott Joss (born 1962) is a songwriter, guitarist, mandolin player, singer, and fiddle player primarily in the American Country music tradition who has performed with Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam, Pete Anderson, Tiny Moore, Roy Nichols, Dusty Wakeman, and Jana Jae and is a successful solo artist.
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, Joss' playing has been key to hit tunes scored by Merle Haggard & The Strangers and Dwight Yoakam.
