Rock Solid Talent Entertainment scout Tina Collins-Carlson brings a new artist Jay Scholl onboard.

NEW YORK - eMusicWire -- Scholl has had every opportunity in life to fail.

He was brought into the world by teenage parents who were swept up in the music, daze and confusion of the Woodstock-era.

Growing up, Scholl would listen to the greats of the time from Led Zeppelin to KISS. Some could say that his career in music really began when he would dress up as Ace Frehley at age 12 and play a few strings from an unplugged electric guitar in front of other kids in the neighborhood. His older sister would even charge 15¢ to let his classmates see him play.

Though as Scholl grew older, his parents fell deeper into a spiral of drug abuse, and he, too, found himself running with the wrong crowd and getting into trouble.

That is, until one day when Scholl's grandfather whom he had long admired, an accomplished upright bassist who found success during the heyday of Glenn Miller and big band orchestras, saved Scholl's life by saying, "You can't play guitar in jail." These six words led Scholl to quickly change his tune and begin to want to follow in the footsteps of his grandfather. Guitar was his way of tuning out from the world around him, and his grandfather was his saving grace.

As a teenager, Scholl formed the heavy metal band Triage, which signed with the MCA's short-lived East coast effort, Infinity Records. The collaboration resulted in the band's sole album Cinder Block. Scholl was officially off to carving out his own path to success in the music industry, just like his grandfather.

Following the band's time with Infinity, Scholl formed the "in-your-face" jazz infused rock band Voodoo Babies in 1996 with bassist Matt Anderson and vocalist Lori Bernish, and quickly became one of Pittsburgh's hottest bands. The trio landed several television spots as musical guests, performed at sold out venues along the East coast, and opened for several iconic acts such as the Goo Goo Dolls, Stevie Nicks, Linda Perry and No Doubt to name a few.

After meeting with world-renowned guitarist and producer Chris Camozzi (Michael Bolton, Mariah Carey), Jay co-produced the Voodoo Babies most successful album Bloom with Around Again Records.
