Born in 1892 the son of a blacksmith, Scott spent much of his early years roaming the open land playing with the horses and cattle on his uncle Remous's farm.

Mostly his Grandma"s Jug and older Sisters's harp.

The Oliva family had been filled with music lovers.

Speaking of voices, Mr. Oliva has one of the most powerful and distinguished voices in the independent metal scene, and his discography of recorded music and band appearances, is prolific and telling. Starting his impressive musical career in local Long Islang progressive metal legends, Inner Strength, Mr. Oliva has also worked consistently and persistently with Wind Wraith, Driven, and most recently, The Nightmare Stage - yet another powerful and provocative gothic metal band with strong Long Island roots, and a killer CD, FREE ADMISSION FOR THE DAMNED - released in 2010. They continue to work on new music for a new CD in 2012. Scott's other longtime (and perhaps, infamous) vocal gig is as vocalist for NY-based Iron Maiden tribute band, Live After Death. When it comes to Mr. Oliva's vocal talents - Prepare yourselves!
