Biography

Scott Tournet is best known as the (slide-) guitar player in Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and Blues And Lasers

Scott Tournet and Ver La Luz:

This self-produced solo album from the lead guitarist in Grace Potter & the Nocturnals is not what you might expect. VER LA LUZ (May 14, 2013) is not Scott Tournet’s “guitar record,” nor does it remotely resemble any of GPN’s LPs. To this listener, Tournet’s music as evidenced by this surprising record more closely resembles that of Wilco at its most soulful and like- embracing. The sound is unpretentiously sophisticated, a seamless fusion of the homespun and the experimental; the songs are earthy, heartfelt; and Tournet’s vocals have that aching vulnerability and natural humanity we’ve come to associate with Jeff Tweedy. But at the same time, there’s something here that belongs to Tournet alone. These 11 songs of struggle, abiding hope and hard-earned acceptance—each resolving into a memorable chorus resolution—chart an internal world that is deeply personal yet universally relatable.
