-Through a career that spanned five full-length releases with his band Fat Opie, a struggle with a long-term illness and a career as a fine artist, Scott Mickelson has persevered. Now, with his debut solo release Mickelson Flickering, he delivers his most critically acclaimed work. Mickelson is singing the stories of those living their lives in contemporary America, as fragmented as it is. Flickering is on the 2015 Grammy Ballot in two categories, “Best Folk Album” and “Best Roots Music Performance”.
Appearances include NPR Radio, Jimmy Lloyd Show (NBC), Huffington Post, CBS Morning Show, Glide Magazine, PopMatters, TheBayBridged, MusicNewsNashville and a Folk Alliance Showcase. Other accolades include winning a national band search sponsored by MTV/7-Up with a prize of $15,000 and a song in the feature film Along The Way. When not touring, Mickelson produces artists from his Bay Area studio.
Mickelson has opened for acts that include Dr. John, Smashmouth, Box Set, Jonathan Richman, Peter Case and Grammy Winner Rob Hotchkiss.
