Scott Reynolds is a punk rock vocalist, known mainly for his work with the band All from 1989-1993. He has also performed with such bands as The Pavers and Goodbye Harry.

Time with ALL[edit]

Reynolds was pop-punk band ALL's second lead singer, replacing Dave Smalley in 1989. He recorded and toured with the group extensively from 1989 - 1993. His songwriting contributions with All were notable; his Dot off 1993's Percolater was the group's first single not written by drummer Bill Stevenson. Reynolds left ALL in 1993 reportedly due to differences in the band regarding touring schedules.

All formed in suburban Los Angeles in 1987 when Milo Aukerman, the lead singer of The Descendents, left to pursue a graduate degree in biochemistry, forcing the band into a hiatus. The remaining members, guitarist Stephen Egerton, bassist Karl Alvarez, and drummer Bill Stevenson decided to carry on as a band, adopting the title of the Descendents’ last studio album, All, as their official moniker.

Enlisting former Dag Nasty and DYSsinger Dave Smalley on vocal duties, All released their first two albums in 1988: Allroy Sez and the EP Allroy for Prez(both distributed by Cruz Records) to critical acclaim. In 1989, Smalley left the band, and new vocalist Scott Reynoldsjoined. With Reynolds, All released four more albums: 1989’s Allroy's Revenge(which included the single She's My Ex), 1990’s Allroy Saves, 1992’s Percolater, and the 1990 live album Trailblazer.

Post ALL[edit]

After ALL, he started the short-lived band Three Car Pile-Up followed by Goodbye Harry. Goodbye Harry put out two albums. In the mid-90's Reynolds moved from Missouri (then ALL headquarters), to Buffalo, NY. During this time he is purported to have held a variety of jobs with music as a hobby. At some point in the late 90's he formed the pop-punk band The Pavers. The Pavers released two albums, two EPs, a live radio cd, and a variety of split EPs. In the early 2000s, frustrated with major label non-response to music that was lauded by fans and critics, he moved from Buffalo, NY to Austin, TX.

He is currently fronting the metal punk band Bonesaw Romance, has recorded an album of more acoustic, lounge-type songs under the moniker Scott Reynolds and the Steaming Beast, and is working with former All band-mate, guitarist Stephen Egerton on another project, 40Engine.

Between October 2009 and February 2010, Scott produced and did back up vocals on an album for a local Austin band called The Butts.[1] The album was mastered by former All band-mate, guitarist Stephen Egerton and was released in early 2011.[2]

Reunion[edit]

On January 26, 2008, Egerton, Stevenson, and Alvarez reunited with Scott Reynolds to play a set of All songs as an opening act for Drag the River at the Aggie in Fort Collins. In mid-April of that year, the band announced that they would be reuniting once again with Reynolds for Chicago, Illinois's 'Riot Fest' on October 12. They performed at the Congress Theater in Chicago, playing for over an hour before Chicago police shut down the show[citation needed].

Additionally, ALL performed two warm up shows; one in Japan in July 2008 and the other at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado on August 29, 2008. The DNC show was cut short and the band completed an additional set that evening at the Three Kings Bar in downtown Denver, CO.

In an interview with RiotFest.org, Scott Reynolds does not rule out the possibility of writing new material but sets three conditions that need to be present: People want to hear new music, he feels the need to create, and the "bro" factor between the band mates needs to be there.[3]
