Scott French – Musician of the Year 2021

As humble as he is talented, Scott French has become a behind-the-scenes musical superhero. An expert guitarist who also plays the occasional mandolin, bass, ukulele, drums, trumpet and keys, French is now known as a jack of all trades within the music industry. French has provided the soundtrack to many of the Gold Coast’s most recognisable and successful acts, including Cheap Fakes, Phil Barlow, Allensworth, Felicity Lawless and The Lamplights. As an audio engineer and producer at Lovestreet studios since his late teens, he has also shaped the musical journey of many local musicians, including his own primary musical project, as one half of Geniie Boy.
