Behind The Magic
For over a decade Scott has been entertaining audiences across the southeast. His incredible talents of comedy, magic, and juggling mingled with his unique style of performance and audience interaction make him a sought after performer. Ironically, as magic is now Scott's profession, the art of magic came to him in a rather magical way.
As a young boy, Scott was shy and uncomfortable around people other than close family and friends. Upon a family vacation to the exciting city of Las Vegas , Scott witnessed one of the greatest magicians perform. Shimada, a world-renown Japanese magician, captured the young Scott's imagination and Scott made a decision to try his hand in the world of magic.
The next day after driving around the city for about four hours, Scott's family gave up on finding a magic shop they had found in the phone book. When they reentered their hotel, much to their surprise there in the lobby was the very magic shop they had been looking for the entire day. Perhaps this was merely coincidence, but perhaps not… Scott got his first two tricks at that shop, quickly learned them, and then began to fool his family.
After that trip, Scott's fascination with the art didn't fade and he kept adding to his collection of magic acquiring new effects and reading a lot of books to hone his skills. Next, he began performing for family and local events. Soon enough, Scott was performing on a regular basis and was accepted as a member in the International Brotherhood of Magicians at the age of 18?
Now, several years later Scott Cantrell is a Middle TN State Graduate with a degree in marketing as well as an active member of two IBM Rings (magic clubs). He stays very busy marketing his services and entertaining children of all ages throughout Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, and Kentucky .
Recently, he also began a career as a corporate speaker and is continuing to use his magic and talents to illustrate key points in his talks throughout the country. He looks forward to a continued life of reaching his newest dreams and goals and helping many others do the same along the way!
