Michael 'Mike' Scott (born 14 December 1958) is the founding member, lead singer and the lead songwriter of rock band The Waterboys. He has also produced two solo albums, Bring 'em All In and Still Burning. Scott is a vocalist, guitarist and pianist, and has played a large range of other instruments, including the bouzouki, drums, and Hammond organ on his albums. Scott is also a published writer, having released his autobiography, Adventures of a Waterboy, in 2012.

Having begun a musical career in the 1970s which has continued to this day, Scott has been described as a "madman or genius, depending on your point of view" by Peter Anderson in Record Collector magazine and is well known for his radical changes in music genres throughout what Scott refers to as his "allegedly unorthodox" career. Scott currently lives in Dublin, Ireland.
