Esteemed Atlanta-based drummer Yonrico Scott, a fixture in the Derek Trucks Band during its 15-year existence before it morphed into the Tedeschi Trucks Band, is releasing a new album this month with his own Yonrico Scott Band, titled Life of a Dreamer.
A CD release celebration and performance has been scheduled for Saturday, February 18th at the relatively new Decatur venue The Vista Room, adjacent to Napoleon’s Grill on LaVista Road. The event will also double as an art show, with an assortment of Scott’s original paintings on display, many rendered on drum heads.
Scott recorded nine studio albums and three live albums with Trucks between 1997 and 2010. He is a member of the Royal Southern Brotherhood with Cyril Neville, Devon Allman and Charlie Wooten, and has released three other albums under his own name prior to Life of a Dreamer.
