No-frills, melodic shred guitarist Scott Motyka, merges old-school fusion rock with modern-day progressive metal, delivering a fuel-injected, edge of your seat attack, which is equally at home ripping the hardest of rocker’s head’s off as it is melting listeners with introspective finesse.

Imagine Robben Ford performing with Tool, covering Paul Gilbert’s ‘Scarified’, using Joe Satriani’s Signature JSX Amplifier.

Hailing from the rural suburbs of New England, cutting his teeth on the edgy eclectic music scenes stretching between Boston and Providence, this virtual unknown delivers a passion and energy for his art, sure to please hard rock guitar aficionados, shred-fanatics and fans of raw, rapid-fire riffage.

On his self-produced solo CD entitled “CUT.. ...FROM WITHIN.”


one hears a collection of close to the heart, hard-hitting instrumental rock tunes inspired by the artist’s trials and tribulations with religion, politics and existential despair.“Cut.., is about emotional pain and how we choose to deal with that pain, I wanted to explore some of the key turning points in my life and make a record that captured those experiences, -and in this case, without words.”

Scott's instrumental dissertation screams of pain, questioning, and angst and conveys the struggle that ensued as he faced his internal demons. From the 'gnashing of teeth' tonality found on “Betrayer’s Trust”, to the solemn intimate resolve heard within tracks like “Rabbiam” and " The Romantical", he projects a depth and dynamic not often found of guitar players within the heavy electric genre.

In 2009, this emerging artist fights the battle for your mind, one note at a time. With new record in hand and supporting power trio on deck, Motyka begins his mission. Armed with his profound ‘secular spirituality’, and old six-stringed friend, he asks the faint of heart to listen with courage,
for his musical message just may be -

The Sound of Everything You Believe, Becoming a Lie.
