He performs regularly with his band, Scott Ramminger & The Temporary Condition, and as a solo act throughout the South and Mid-Atlantic, primarily.

The February 2022 release, "Live at 3rd & Lindsley, Nashville," is Ramminger’s sixth record in 11 years.

Of the five records, only “Alive and Ornery” contains a few cover songs. The rest are Ramminger's originals.

His February 2017 studio release, “Do What Your Heart Says To,” reached Number 1 on the “Root Music Report” R&B Album Charts, and his double live CD, released in September of 2017, made it into the mid-20s on the competitive “Roots Music Report” Blues Album Charts.
