Meet Scott Snyder our Toastmaster
Scott likes RPG games a lot. He also writes music for several video games, performs superbly in a band or two, and works on the albums of other excellent musicians. One of which is Captains of the Chess Team, a band of game industry musicians based in Austin. This group rocks hard, and you can listen to Scott’s “Bit Torrent of Love” at their website and check out several youtube videos.
Scott was a Broadcast Journalist for the US Army and did “everything from Program Management of a radio station in Monterey, to drive time FM Radio on-air personality, to television and radio spot producer, and station graphic artist in charge of station imagery for AFKN (American Forces Korea Network).” .
Those of you lucky enough to have met him know he is a funny, kind, and talented guy.
His song, “Feygrass” was nominated twice for a Pegasus Award in 2005 and 2009. “Secrets” was nominated for a Pegasus in 2012. He has also mastered albums for several filkers and performed in them, Talis Kimberley’s brilliant Queen of Spindles being one of them.
Speaking of albums, His filk music is it is difficult to get ahold of. Bardic Lug was released on tape in 1997. We need more Scott! Luckily, he is currently recording a new album with Jeff Bohnhoff.
Thanks to Dr Mary Crowell for Scott's bio. See the Program book for His full bio.
