Ledfoot Gothic Blues Volume One

LEDFOOT a.k.a. Tim Scott McConnell was born in a trailer-park in Florida 1958. At the age of 15 he started to play biker bars around Florida and moved to New York when he was 17. He played all the famed underground clubs in NY such as legendary CBGB’s, Max’s Kansas City and the Mud club.

In 1979 he joined the band The Rockats and signed a deal with Island Records and toured around the USA for the next five years.

In 1989 he started The Havalinas with Smutty Smiff (Rockats, 13kats) and Chalo Quitana (Cruzados, Bob Dylan, Social Distortion). The band signed to Elektra after a bidding war between the major companies and released THE HAVALINAS in 1990. They toured around USA extensively and did support gigs for Bob Dylan, Chris Isaak and Tina Turner. The Havalinas toured all over the world including three tours of Europe this helping to raise Tim’s profile this side of the Atlantic. In 1993 Tim Scott moved to Norway and the bands only release on Electra became their first and only album.

In Norway Tim signed with Warner Music who released the album DECEIVERS AND BELIEVERS in 1994. This album gave Tim heavy radio play in Norway and across Europe. In 1996 he recorded an album on Waterfall Records, the same year as Bruce Springsteen recorded Tim’s song High Hopes on the BLOODBROTHERS EP and DVD.

Ledfoot is the culmination of Tim’s 35 years of history and experience as an artist.

GOTHIC BLUES VOLUME ONE was recorded in the hours between nine and midnight one day in April 2011 giving the recordings a very heartfelt live sound.
