Ultimatum: The Beginning

…and so it begins! Ben Scott here, the creator and performer of Ultimatum; a revolutionary new form of corporate entertainment and high end wedding entertainment. I’m SO excited for what’s to come in 2019 and thought I’d open things up with a little hello to the wonderful people viewing the Ultimatum site.


I wanted to kick things off by telling you a little more of my own story, and how Ultimatum came to be. I graduated from the Academy of Contemporary Music in 2010, and was lucky to begin my career as a session musician very shortly after. My first work was with an American singer, signed to Island records at the time, and called Alex Winston. Over the period of two years I toured the world and recorded with her, meeting international artists and producers along the way - in turn leading to new work, and new friends. It was during this time that I was lucky to find myself in the studio with Ed Sheeran who, at the time, was the new signing for Atlantic Records and busy recording his first album ‘+’. Not long after that I was delighted to receive my first framed record!


Over the following years I would find myself performing, song writing, producing and directing dozens of incredible artists from all over the world, playing on stages I could have only dreamed of performing upon as a kid - from London’s Brixton Academy and Hammersmith Eventim Apollo, to Glastonbury and Isle of Wight festivals - among hundreds of others.


Ultimatum is the amalgamation of all of the experience and expertise built up through my years as a performing and studio musician. It’s absolutely everything I have to give creatively, and it’s a true joy to perform on each and every occasion.

Using a combination of cutting-edge music technology, instrumental performance and frontmanship, my aim is to bring you the best entertainment you can possibly get, rivalled by no one and the only one of its kind in the world. Thank you for reading, and I can’t wait to meet you!
