Scott Greenall, (born January 16, 1973) is an artist from Garden Grove, California. Although suffering from Cerebral Palsy since birth,[1] in 1992 he started a small multi-track recording studio in his grandparents' garage.

Though Greenall was a musician from an early age, he opened the studio to learn the art of recording by recording bands from all around the Greater Los Angeles Area. In 1993 Greenall produced and recorded a full-length album for Real-Eyes titled "Contagious".[2] In that same year, (1993) he recorded and engineered a 7", EP. titled "What I Can't Have" for Plaid Retina. Greenall closed the recording studio to the public in late 1996.

Scott Greenall used his experience as a recording engineer / producer to craft and nurture his own sound and material.[3]

Performance[edit]

Starting in 1997, Scott Greenall began performing live.[4] One show he performed in Orange County, California, caught the eye of film producer, Kevin Ragsdale, who, in 2004, cast Scott Greenall to perform a song that Greenall wrote titled, "I'm Never Going Away"[5] in the feature-length film, "The Curse of El Charro".[1] The movie introduced Scott Greenall"s artistic stylings to a whole new public.[6] Greenall gave a remarkably eerie performance in a scene that literally feels like David Lynch had stepped in for a moment to direct.[7] The film was released through Paramount / Showtime cable vision, as well as DVD,[8] and distributed worldwide.

In 2006, film director / composer, Rich Ragsdale, directed a music video for Scott Greenall. The video was produced by KNR-Productions for a song Greenall wrote titled "All The Love in the World Can't Save You Now".[9][10]

Scott Greenall emerged as an artist through the Deathrock underground.[11]

On August 1, 2015, Scott Greenall released a 5-song EP. titled "Fallen World".[13]
