Maine native Scotty Huff began his music career at a very young age. His talent was inevitable. His father is a retired music educator and both his parents are professional musicians. His early years gave Scotty his first taste of performing through school bands and choral groups. He was awarded many prestigious awards and scholarships throughout his school career. It was during this time that Scotty also began to perform professionally throughout the state of Maine.
He graduated from the University of Southern Maine with a Bachelors of Music in Music Education. His college years weren't simply filled with study, but he expanded his professional horizons by performing in a multitude of settings highlighting his multi-instrumental and vocal talents. The breadth of experience he recieved at this stage was crucial to his development not only as a performer, but a composer, arranger, and producer. Scotty took every opportunity to play with rock bands, jazz ensembles, funk and soul bands, syphony orchestras, brass quintets, country bands, folk groups, dixieland bands, and more. It was also at this time when Scotty caught the eye of bigger names. He was often one of many top call musicians in Maine contracted to support touring acts like Natalie Cole and the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra (lead by Lee Castle).
After moving to Nashville in 1997, Scotty quickly established himself as a trumpet player and immediately began working with Nashville legends Boots Randolph and Danny Davis. It wasn't long after Scotty's arrival in Tennessee when he was hired by The Mavericks to lead their horn section, The Havana Horns, on a world tour that lasted three years. When The Mav's took a break in 2001, Scotty was hired by Keith Urban to play rhythm guitar and sing backing vocals. He was an integral part of Keith's touring band through his first three solo records.

After working with Keith, Scotty began to be sought after to help jump start the careers of many up and coming as well as veteran artists in Nashville. This trusted role found Scotty assisting artists in their radio promotion tours as a vocalist and guitar player as well as band leader and music director positions. Among the artists Scotty worked with is Canadian powerhouse Amanda Wilkinson, Capitol Recording Aritst Jamie O'Neal, hit songwriter Rachel Proctor, and most recently the tremendously talented RCA recording artists Jake Owen.
Scotty has now given up full time touring to focus on his film scoring and production talents and also be home to raise his two beautiful children along side his loving wife. He is also an amateur radio (ham) operator (N4WRD) and an Assistant Emergency Coordinator for the Sumner County Amateur Radio Emergency Service.
