Resident Scout is a solo project created by its founder Hobey Kuhn in 2009. As a senior in high school, he wrote, recorded, mixed, played and produced his first album, "My Greatest Sympathies," released July 6, 2010. Much like that of Moby and Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails, Hobey Kuhn is the only person behind the endeavors of Resident Scout, having recorded the entire album in the studio he and his brother built in 2009, entitled Outback Studios.
Resident Scout''s workmanship stretches from the light and simple feel of Indie Rock, from bands like Spoon, Cold War Kids and Vampire Weekend, to the edgier, more energetic feel of 90''s Alternative, Grunge, and Blues, artists like Nirvana, The White Stripes, and the Foo Fighters. "I wanted to combine the playful little ditties from the indie rock bands of today with the energy that the grunge bands produced in the 90''s."
Without a band, and without any idea of what to do after the release, it is actually surprising how Resident Scout fares against full touring bands that invest heavily into promotion. The Deli Nashville had Resident Scout peaking at 13 on Nashville''s Top 300 Charts, and at 2 on their Indie Rock charts, only behind Kings of Leon. Blogs podcasts, and online radio stations, such as BBC 6 Music''s "Introducing" run by Tom Robinson and the "We Own This Town" Nashville blog, run by Michael Eades, have also picked up on Resident Scout''s growing popularity, giving many of the songs shoutouts and spins.
With this encouragement, Hobey Kuhn plans to continue his endeavors, writing and recording another album hopefully by the end of next Summer. Even though time is now limited because he is currently an Engineering major at the University of Michigan, he will continue to promote online, and soon enough on the road once he is able to form a full band.
