SCOTT is a singer, songwriter, producer from Canada, who started his career performing with his brothers in the band The Moffatts.
The Moffatts would go on to sell 6 million records world-wide, record 7 albums, win MTV and MUCH Music awards, host the JUNO’s and perform over 5,000 concerts all by the time they were 17 years old.
In 2001, The Moffatts broke up.
But that was not the end of things.
Since then, SCOTT’s continuing world-wide musical journey has touched down in Los Angeles, Bangkok, Nashville, Montreal, Calgary, Victoria and London, ON.
He’s been busy.
It really all started with indie band, The Boston Post, where he toured Canada seemingly ceaselessly. This was a time of blissful insanity. But it was a beautiful time. A time of learning and friendship and going out into the world to make his own mistakes.
Then The Boston Post imploded.
In 2004, SCOTT moved to Los Angeles with his Boston Post co-founder Shawn Everett. During this period, he released his first solo record, Allegory of the City. A stripped down bedroom recording, drawing comparisons to Simon and Garfunkel, The Zombies, Elliot Smith and Sufjan Stevens. A sort of predecessor to Kurt Vile.
SCOTT moved to Bangkok, late 2006. He signed on as in-house-producer for Sony BMG and garnered producer of the year 2 years in a row. This was all in conjunction with his greatest panic attack. It lasted 3 years and the cortisol still runs high. But he worked harder during this period than he had in years. His last production job in Thailand was Tabasco’s 1984 and this received critical acclaim and helped them win Best New Band of the Year.
While in Thailand, SCOTT started working on the beginnings of his next solo recording. This turned out the framework for his self-produced (mixed by Ken Lewis - Kayne West, One Republic, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars) first single, Whenever Not Ever; recorded on a late and swelteringly hot night somewhere in the tropics, this Samba-influenced song about giving love, dealing with insanity and seeing beauty in the most compromising times will make your shoulders sway. The video for Whenever Not Ever was directed, filmed, edited and physically created by SCOTT along with his brother Clint (Like Strangers) and tells the story of a boy trying to survive in a hungry world, but he still manages to find beauty in-between the moments of fear and struggle.
2015 is already turning into a great year. The first single “Whenever Not Ever” has received airplay in Argentina and Chile and plans for an Eastern Canadian tour have been set in motion. Look for the song on iTunes or Spotify and the video on Youtube. Just type in “SCOTT Whenever Not Ever” and you will find him.
