TRIXTER Drummer MARK GUS SCOTT Steps Out Front

NEW JERSEY, August 26, 2019 -- After Rocking the World with MTV hair band Trixter for three decades, former NJ resident Mark Gus Scott steps out from behind the drums to stand center stage for his lead vocal debut and share something very special. The rock star turned adult contemporary solo artist's latest release "With You..." is an emotional, passionate and heartfelt ballad the likes of which will never be expected by his ever-growing constituency of fans.
 
“For the past few years, I have pursued music outside of Rock and Roll in hopes of touching just one person. To be on the receiving end of so much love and support from so many around the world is a gift I never expected,” says Scott.
 
"With You..." combines an 80's-style power ballad piano riff, symphonic orchestration and powerful melodic hooks all providing a platform for deep emotional poetry that truly moves the soul.
Listeners will not be ready for the soaring and soulful hook-filled melodies backed by enormous “angelic” background harmonies; definitely a huge surprise coming from one of rock's hardest-hitting drummers.
 
"With You..." releases Worldwide on Thursday, September 12th and promises to deliver something very special to today's musical landscape; adding a great deal of credibility to Mark's platinum sales
status. CDs / Downloads are available through Apple iTunes, Amazon Music, Google Music, CD Baby and everywhere downloads are available.
Personally Autographed CDs are available at www.MarkGusScott.com
