Performing 2000 shows since June 2005, Scott Allan Knost has been busy making his mark. Playing in bars, coffee houses and auditoriums through 29 states and 14 countries, he’s been bringing new fans in to the fold with his brand of percussive, acoustic rock.
Based in Wichita, Kansas, SAK has been playing in various groups most of his life, some gaining radio play and touring throughout the midwest.
In 2005, he began going to open mics and singing some of his original songs, written quietly in hotel rooms.
Gaining some attention, he then decided to fulfill a lifelong dream and started his professional solo career in March 2007, living solely on income generated from honorariums, royalties and merchandise.
Incorporating looping, delay, and swirling harmonies built in real time, SAK presents catchy tunes, clever lyrics and masterful performances that will have you convinced that there’s an entire band on stage.
He has shared the stage with Martin Sexton, Sister Hazel, Uncle Kracker, Rehab, Casey Donahew, Andy Griggs, Kip Winger, L.A. Guns, Faster Pussycat, Britny Fox, Jackson Taylor & The Sinners, Mike McClure, Sunny Ledfurd, Rich O’Toole, Truckstop Honeymoon, John Berry & Buddy Jewell.
A person in attendance at a SAK show can expect to find an intimate and engaging performance of original work with choice interpretations of Cyndi Lauper, John Mayer, MGMT and Prince, to name a few.
Scott proudly uses: Pigtronix guitar effect pedals, Lava guitar cables, and Clayton USA guitar picks.
