Scott Walker is the stage name of the American singer-songwriter Noel Scott Engel (born January 9, 1943 in Hamilton, Ohio), former lead singer with The Walker Brothers. He has been living in England since the 1960s, and continues to release new solo material.

His earliest material was released under his own name in the late 1950s. His most successful period in his career was between the years 1965 and 1970 where in he released three albums with The Walker Brothers, before going on to record a number of popular albums as a solo artist.

Walker's career faltered critically and commercially in the 1970s where he became stuck in a cycle of releasing lacklustre albums of MOR covers. In the mid-1970s Walker reformed The Walker Brothers with mixed results. Their final album together; Nite Flights (1978) was a sonic breakthrough for Walker. His next three albums – each released eleven years apart – developed and expanded his new direction.
