While in the studio recording material for a follow-up to Andromeda in 1998, Scot was devoting more and more time to his own songs, recruiting local Jazz talent to interpret his new brand of Pop music. The result is "Liminal" (2000), a blend of World Beat guitar grooves, ironic lyricism and melodic Pop hooks.

Scot relocated to southern California in 2000, releasing the alternatice pop album "Gone" in March 2002, whose opening track "We" reached #10 on FM 92.1's Top Ten Local Songs of 2002. Scot and his band are currently in the studio recording a follow-up to "Gone"...
