LA-based, Long Island, NY native Scott Waldman is what you might call a true renaissance man. The musician/artist manager/a&r executive and host of the weekly show Waldman Words, heard on Idobi Radio, has a lot on his plate, and he wouldn’t have it any other way.
The former bassist of pop punk outfit The City Drive (Sony) and guitarist/front man of Lido Beach, has turned his experience as a touring and signed musician into a major asset for his management clients and his numerous other endeavors.
With first-hand knowledge of the ins-and-outs of the ever-changing music industry, and a clear vision of how to help musicians further their careers, Waldman has built up an impressive roster of clients that consists of recording artists (Best Ex, Boomtown Crooks, Filmspeed, etc), music producers (Alex Arias, Curtis Douglas, Dave Dominguez and Kim Shattuck) and comics (Steven Briggs).
Waldman’s popular weekly podcast Waldman’s Words, heard on pioneering internet radio site Idobi Radio, has given Waldman an additional platform with which to help and nurture new artists, to give exposure to developing talent, and to talk with assorted industry tastemakers, gatekeepers, and influencers about the latest developments in the music business.
Additionally, Waldman recently signed on as a senior A&R executive with newly launched LEGEND Recordings where he will help to discover and sign artists across multiple genres.
Over the years, Waldman has also spoken at a number of industry conventions and events. He also tours occasionally and plays shows at venues around L.A., both as a solo artist and as singer/guitairst in two-piece 90s cover band The Seattles.
Upcoming shows include a set at LA’s The Mint on Friday, June 23, a gig that’s being billed as “Scott Waldman and Friends.” Check out the event page here.
