Bassist/Producer Scott Wilson, who, after over six years, and as the band’s second longest standing member, recently announced his departure from TANTRIC. Wilson, now bassist for SAVING ABEL, released the following statement regarding the situation surrounding his exit from the band:
“There has been some untruths and speculation circling about my departure from TANTRIC. To clarify, I made the decision to leave, as did the rest of the band. This was not a spur of the moment decision, but a culmination of years of erratic and profoundly unprofessional behavior from other members of the band, and a lack of forward momentum and opportunities.
When I brought in my dear friend Bryan Bonds formerly of Florida Georgia Line, I felt maybe the band could have a fresh start. We had written a ton of amazing songs, which we recorded and started to copulate an album. I still believe in those songs, however there were many, many situations within the band I could no longer overlook.
I didn’t sign up to join a one-man band, and while I wish the best to TANTRIC in their future endeavors, I have much more artistically to look forward to, including writing an amazing new album with SAVING ABEL (Who I began writing with prior to my exit from TANTRIC) that we are looking forward to recording, and staying busy with many studio and Production endeavors.”
Wilson works all over the country as a producer, but calls Colorado’s Sunshine Studios home base. Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Sunshine Studios is a 17k square feet facility that houses a recording studio as well as Colorado Springs most popular rock venue, Sunshine Studios Live.
With his partners in crime Christina “Sunshine” Corbitt and Richard Easterling, both renowned engineers, Wilson has been responsible for recent releases from Source, Emperors and Elephants, Tantric and Atlantic Panic.
