Bio
Justin D. Scott is the president of Entermind as well as an avid composer, pianist, and engineer. He is a certified Pro Tools Operator, a full member of AES (Audio Engineering Society), and an Associate Member of the Recording Academy that votes to select GRAMMY award recipients. He was born in Queens, NY, and began playing the piano at age 5, after which he quickly decided to devote his studies to music, often practicing 8-10 hours per day. His first teacher was Lorraine Cich in Westchester Country, NY. During high school, Justin began using MIDI to write his first pieces using virtual instruments, and arranged the music for his high school band.

After moving to New York City, Justin worked at Skyline Studios NYC for Janathan Mover (drummer for Joe Satriani and Aretha Franklin, among others) and performed a variety of assistant or engineering duties on sessions with the Astoria Symphony Orchestra, Carol Morgan Choir, Jack Bruce, Mike Stern, Richard Belzer, Government Mule, and Nina Sky. Soon after, Justin met KiNo, Poet of Sound and Image, and left Skyline to work at EARS for KiNo's producer, Jeff Blenkinsopp. Recent projects have included original compositions for The Keyboard Museum in midtown Manhattan and working on the live KiNo show as a keyboardist and engineer. Additional projects have included mastering music for Yankee Stadium and other various pieces for Carmen Consentino (Bill Haley's Comets), working with film/video game composer Jesper Kyd on game and game-related projects, and engineering recordings for Onnie McIntyre (Average White Band) and Joe Sztabnik from New York Junk.
