Largely self taught, guitarist Al Scholl's approach to music has been described as "alternately brash and intensely introspective." Years spent working at record stores and indie labels have infused his aesthetic with a stanky potpourri of influences. The diametrically opposed styles of the gutbucket '50's instro-rockers such as Link Wray flourish alongside the more refined angles of modern experimental music. At least that is what he likes to think. Scholl has been fortunate to perform and record with numerous excellent musicians that you have probably heard of. He has also played with way too many crappy ones that he sincerely hopes you will never have to hear. Luckily, Nathan Hubbard, Jason Robinson and Nate Wooley have been frequent collaborators. A Trummerflora member, Scholl's current projects include the gray matter of Trio Mahgreb (with Marco Fernandes and Tracy McMullen), the beastly Obscuricon and several manic manifestations of the Skeleton Key Orchestra. He has also been seen performing recently with the one and only, Titicacaman.
