They work with many prominent artists including Philip Glass, Trey Anastasio, Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, Michael Stipe, Lou Reed, Vampire Weekend, Regina Spektor, Gogol Bordello, Linda Thompson, David Byrne, Ziggy Marley, Rufus Wainwright, and the Kronos Quartet, among others.
Scorchio has premiered works by all genres of composers including Tony Visconti, Joel Thome, Anthony Cornicello and Martha Mooke. They are featured in the award winning documentary "Inside the Perfect Circle: The Odyssey of Joel Thome".
