Scott's determination to succeed in music was grafted into his family tree years ago. His grandmother and her family grew up during the depression years in a small north Texas town. The family of five children worked hard to get by and music was a major escape from the dark times. Each child played a musical instrument in the small Assembly of God Church they attended. The piano was the favorite instrument. From his earliest days Scott remembers stories of his great uncle, Drew Thomas (Tommy) House, the middle son, who after his high school graduation packed his bags, hit the pavement with a thumb and hitchhiked to New York City. Tommy landed a job as a waiter at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel Restaurant and there met the famous composer, Irving Berlin. Berlin, taken by the young man, gave him a job helping Berlin write. Tommy worked for Berlin until WWII broke out and he was drafted. After the war he never returned to music. Scott's grandmother inherited the old family piano, which by then all the ivory was worn off its keys. When he was small Scott was awed by his grandmother being able to make music with that big old black instrument. They sat for hours singing and playing old hymns. Scott's grandmother died in 1990, but Scott did not forget the music. His senior year Scott was the lead singer in a local band. During the next few years Scott performed in a couple of garage bands and released two independent CD's. He married, divorced and had a son. Music ministered to Scott through the heartbreak of his marriage ending. He says, " music became therapy--a place to tell all his hurt to." Today, Scott is a solo artist. Musical peers refer to him as "the love song balladeer",and his music is compared to the music of James Taylor, John Denver,and Chris Issack. Music critics describe his voice as, "the most soulful they have heard." Scott serves on the Board of Directors of the Fort Worth Songwriter's Association and in the last year has given more than 100 performances. Recent performances include the Grapefest Wine and Music Festival in Grapevine, Texas, in September, 2002. In October 2002, Scott performed at the Fort Worth Fall Arts and Music Festival at Sundance Square in Fort Worth, Texas. November 2002 he performed at the North Texas New Music Festival in the Deep Ellum Arts District of Dallas, Texas. What may be more important to Scott than even music is helping someone through addition, and he remains active in this pursuit. For him the true miracle is the lives his music touches--be it one or millions. Scott says, "Every time he plays he plays as if it were his last, because you never know when it might be."

There are some very catchy tunes on this cd. Scott's voice is very original and the acoustic work is both tasteful and well done. The cover songs are good, but I prefer the originals. "A Memory on Canvas" really stands out and speaks to me. As well as "Mark Upon the Cross", this songs is very powerful and thought provoking as well. This cd is for every fan of soulful, acoustic music.
