Scotty's extensive tenor and counter tenor vocal range puts him is a class aside from most male singers. From his early days in school choirs, and University ensembles where he honed his vocal and theatrical skills, to present day where stage and studio are the primary focus, Scotty excels in all aspects of his performance attributes.
After his 2003 appearance on the reality television series Canadian Idol, Scotty began to seek out industry professionals to colloaborate with and further his musical career. In the fall of 2004, Scotty teamed up with classically-trained pianist and producer Richard Uglow at Studio 92 in Toronto to begin working on his original material. Uglow's music and ideas complimented Scotty's personal style of writing and vocal expression. Because of Scotty's background with basic audio engineering, both he and Uglow were able to work as a team to figure out the best possible sound for the different projects they worked on together. Upon completion of his initial demo project with Uglow entitled: "NO VACANCY", Scotty turned his sights and efforts towards recording a full-length album.
"NEW ROADS", was recorded in-between concert venues and acting performances. Working with Toronto-based producer Brent Bodrug, Scotty put his years of writing and external inspiration into a record that demonstrated his vast range and musicality. His aim was to give something back to the people who have supported him throughout all of his aspirations by providing his family, friends, and many supporters with a style and sound that everyone could enjoy. The album was officially released in February of 2009 at a private party.
In the spring of 2009, Scotty signed an international distribution deal with IndiePool for both retail and digital sales. Shortly after this, he signed a licensing agreement with Nightingale Music to expose "NEW ROADS" to the world of film, tv and radio placement.
In May of 2010, through writers Les Kotzer and Lewis Manne, Scotty was introduced to Juno Award winning producer Greg Kavanagh (BKS, David Foster, Aretha Franklin, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt) to record vocals for his tribute single "These Are Our Heroes". A musical relationship was forged between them both, and since then, Scotty has been busy with Greg - creating new music and developing a new sound to complement his vast performance style. With more than 25 years in the industry, multiple major label deals and recording contracts under his belt, Greg's reputation speaks for itself. His notoriety, achievement and industry recognition is unquestionable and he is the perfect fit for Scotty. Together, they are creating an exciting new musical vision which will suit Scotty's sound and help him to compete in today's cut-throat music scene.
December 2011 marked a new chapter in Scotty's life when he joined the artist roster for Current Management. Under the guise and watchful eye of Juno Award winning veteran manager and rock icon Gerry Young (The Parachute Club, Martha and the Muffins, Frank D'Angelo, George Casey) Scotty set off on an exciting new path and has since - successfully released his latest singles to nationwide AC radio stations.
