Scott formed a techno-pop group called GROWING UP DIFFERENT with two former FACE DANCER band mates, that toured the East Coast in the mid-1980s and released an EP of original songs called “A+B=C”.

In 1986, Scott moved to Los Angeles where he formed a group called THE SLEEPWALKERS. He returned to the East Coast and in 1990 and continued to participate in annual FACE DANCER reunion concerts until the death of their lead singer Carey Kress in 2009. Two additional independent FACE DANCER albums were released during this time: “Midnight Raid” and “Alive.”
