I can sit back now and feel amazed at the way Scott has mastered so many different instruments and the way he has taken to song writing; he is one of those people who totally immerses himself in his work-plays hard and gigs hard too.
Complicated Generation has some very mature lyrics and is a dissertation upon current ‘youth’, almost article like but the music carries it through to make it a song of our times. Scott’s music has that uncanny ability to include a retro feel but is totally modern; a sound many others might well aspire too.
On listening to Out In The Rain one could almost imagine that this could have been an early Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam song as it has that same continuing story within it and the bass line plays along beautifully adding an additional dimension to a song that deserves wider attention and appreciation.
Scott’s music is also very visual and conjures up images of his lyrical content and there are not many up and coming or even established musos who have that ability. I forecast a bright future for Scott and wish him well on his journey-one that is only just starting but he is already well ahead of many of his contemporaries.
Song writing is not easy these days for independent musos, as there is so much competition and one needs that certain edge to get ahead of the crowd. Scott’s music has the ability to do this and when one considers that these are home recordings imagine how a full studio production could alter these numbers. So if there are any producers out there looking for some hit material, go knocking on Scott’s door before others beat you there!
