H. Scott Salinas

H. Scott Salinas is an American composer and musician. Playing guitar since the age of twelve, Salinas began his music career on the small island of St. Croix in the United States Virgin Islands. Scott soon became known as an accomplished sideman and toured the island in reggae and blues bands. In 1993, Scott left his island home to major in music at Princeton University. At Princeton, Scott discovered jazz and classical music, turning his whole musical world upside down. He scored three short films including the all-guitar psychological thriller Kentucky Motel, and completed a 20-minute mini-opera that debuted at a concert heralding classical greats Yo-Yo Ma (cello) and Edgar Meyer (bass), and Pulitzer Prize winning author Toni Morrison. After graduating from Princeton Magna Cum Laude in 1997, Scott continued his education at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he concentrated in film scoring and honed his jazz guitar skills. In the summer of 2000, he was awarded the prestigious Berklee College of Music Segue Internship Award.
