Welcome

ME-B&W… to scottlaningham.com

I’m a storyteller, through words, music, and video – mediums we all have more immediate and portable access to now than ever before. Within our smartphones alone, we  hold media creation and broadcast power that equals and even exceeds what used to be locked up in radio and television stations. That just blows my mind, daily.

I write on a variety of subjects — IBM & Tech looks at trends in technology and is centered around my day job at IBM as a content creator. (But to be perfectly clear, I do not speak here on behalf of IBM. These are my thoughts on my personal site.)  A Beautiful World is where I write about the world as I see it, with an emphasis on encouraging a better one. Music is where I share stories and thoughts as they relate to my 35+ years as a working musician. Humor is self-explanatory, and necessary, since a part of me is always laughing. You’ll also find information about my musical background, some photos, and some favorite quotes.

I’m tempted to say, There’s something here for everybody!, but I know that’s not true. I do hope you enjoy the site though. It’s a labor of love that gives back as much as I give to it.

P.S. – Don’t miss the Upcoming Events information in the footer below and signup for my music-related email newsletter HERE.
