    Singer and songwriter Allan Scott discovered an affinity for music at a young age.  He was eleven when his brother started taking guitar lessons.  “I eventually took his guitar and didn’t give it back,” Allan explained with a laugh.

    Much of Allan’s early years, however, weren’t a laughing matter.  Raised in a home that was characterized by his parent’s heated arguments, their eventual divorce, and his mother’s remarriage which ended with his stepfather being escorted from their house in handcuffs after an incident of domestic abuse, Allan remembers his childhood as one marked by rejection.

    Although Allan had heard about God during his childhood and found solace in his growing passion for music, Allan’s home life continued to deteriorate during his teen years. He fell into the destructive clutches of drug use, and eventually he was expelled from his middle school in Pennsylvania.  Shortly after, he dropped out of school and ended up running from the police.

    “When I got into drugs and alcohol, I sold all of my musical equipment,” Allan explained.  As his life spiraled further out of control, his musical ambitions slipped away.  At his lowest point, he found himself in Dallas, with no place to live and smoking crystal meth.  In desperation, he cried out to God.

    God’s answer came in an unlikely form: an arrest.  It was during his time in jail that Allan’s life was radically changed.   “It was my nineteenth day in jail, and I remember thinking – I don’t have to live like this anymore.  At the time I don’t think that I even knew how desperate my situation was, but God answered my prayer for help.  From that point forward, He gave me the desire to change.  In Psalms it says, ‘I am close to the broken hearted, I save those who are crushed in spirit.’ He set me free, forgave me,
    and gave me a new life.”

    As his heart and mind were transformed, Allan’s dreams of playing music were awakened once again. “One day, while still in prison, I began to hear these songs in my head,” Allan explained.  He rapidly wrote lyric after lyric of the songs the Lord placed on his heart.  When he was released from jail at age 22, Allan knew he had to pursue his newly reignited passion for music.  As described in his testimony that was featured on CBN’s The 700 Club, this encounter with Christ radically changed his life.

    Allan began to lead worship at his local church and minister through music at youth and campus events.  In 2006, he married Jana, a beautiful woman who also had been set free from a destructive lifestyle.

    Now, Allan is in a mission – one song, one service, and one concert at a time.  That mission is to spread the message that we can approach God’s throne boldly in our time of need without fear of judgment because of what Jesus accomplished on the cross. “My desire is to infuse as much as the message of God’s grace as possible into our music so that when we write, we’re actually saying something that will affect people,” Allan stated.

    Former drug addict, dropout, thief and loser Allan Scott found hope in his jail cell, calling on God to heal the broken pieces of his life. Fifteen years later, this redeemed singer, songwriter and worship leader shares his experience in song, declaring the prayer of his life in the redemptive, hopeful “No More Lies On Me” Single which released March 1st at all digital retail outlets.

    Produced by the Life Centers Nathan Horst (Benjamin Dunn, Sean Feucht, Kristene DiMarco), the compelling new single from Scott is meant to lift his struggling brothers and sisters; an encouragement to believe that God is bigger than any circumstance we may face. Having known the pain of multiple divorces by his parents, substance abuse and loss of personal freedom through incarceration, Scott found that the goodness of God can restore all from hopelessness. That God gives his children a completely new identity not based upon their performance but based upon what He did on the cross.

    The new “NMLOM” single follows Scott’s 2017 “Run to You” EP which peaked at the #5 spot nationally on the iTunes Christian & Gospel charts. Additional releases from Scott include 2014’s “What You Say” which was produced by hit maker Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin, TobyMac, Nichole Nordeman). Scott’s 2013 radio single “God in Me” was also produced by Ed Cash.

    Scott’s 2012 release, Blameless and Free EP was written by Allan Scott, co-written and produced by award winning music producer/songwriter Scott Davis (Kutless, Rush of Fools), and mixed by Allen Salmon (Building 429, Starfield).  Characterized by lyrical depth, the project resounds with the message of God’s redemption and grace.

    Allan has ministered along side artists such as Citizen Way, 7eventh Time Down, JJ Weeks Band, Paul Baloche, Kari Jobe, David Crowder, Big Daddy Weave, Jason Crabb, John Waller, Plumb, John Tibbs, Anthem Lights, Abandon & David Dunn. He has also been featured in the 200th Episode of Focus on the Family’s Plugged in Podcast, CCM Magazine, Worship with Andy Chrisman, The Harvest TV Show and internationally on TBN’s “Praise the Lord”  and  CBN’s “The 700 Club” television programs. In 2012, 2013 & 2017 Allan led campus wide worship events at Andrew Wommack Ministries International/Charis Bible College in Colorado Springs, CO. Allan Scott Band has appeared main-stage at festivals across the country including Creation 17 NorthEast. Currently the band is being featured nationally on the Born to Be Brave Tour, a one night father & son connecting event from best selling author and creator of Secret Keeper Girl, Dannah Gresh.

    The band is Allan Scott (lead vocals and guitar), Connor Williams (bass), Matthew Wolf (lead guitar), Caleb Bush (drums) and Jared VanOuse (keys and programming).

    Allan knows what Intimacy with the Father is! | Posted June 18, 2013
    I have been listening to Allan play for the Lord for many years now and have enjoyed watching how the Lord has deepened Allan's understanding of grace and how that has spilled over into his music. His love for the Father and his receiving of Father's love for him, greater deeper intimacy brings forth a depth of intimacy that most haven't captured yet! You can only be blessed and plunged into greater intimacy by listening to Allan play!
