BEST LOCAL SOLO MUSICIAN Scott Nixon It takes a lot of balls to get up onstage all by your lonesome, especially when in your past life as the lead singer of a band you were known for being a reluctant frontman. Such is the case for the erstwhile vocalist/bassist for Ed Matus' Struggle and Disconnect, Scott Nixon, who comes out of his shell a few times each year to share his incredible voice and songs in a vein similar to country alt-rockers Whiskeytown (of Ryan Adams fame) and San Francisco's Red House Painters. Although Nixon has said he has never considered himself a singer, his emotional delivery always seems to hit home with his audiences, which is why catching him solo is both a welcome Ed Matus' Struggle flashback and a comforting reminder that there is life after the breakup.
