Wood Strings & Stories
Scott Greenwalt is a singer/songwriter based in Nashville. He grew up in small towns all over Kentucky and Tennessee, following his Baptist preacher father from town to town. His first experience in front of an audience was at a birthday party when he and some of his friends were the back-up band for a local Elvis impersonator. In 2001 Scott, his brother Troy and friend Jonathan Oglesby started the alternative rock band The Codenames. They made three records full of crazy songs about zombies, hairy girlfriends and small-town freaks. Their songs were played on radio stations all over the country and as far away as Santiago, Chile. When The Codenames broke up in 2006, Scott decided to take his music in a different direction. Wood, Strings And Stories is the result. It's an acoustic record recorded with a guitar, a snare drum, some shakers and a beat-up old church piano.
