This very talented Victoria based musician is known for focusing heavily on his lyrics, mixing in equal parts personality and emotion. He captivates audiences with his breathtaking poems and I found there’s a theme to his lyrics. It’s basically all about love and honesty. Songs that caught my attention were “Ain’t it the Truth”, a song coincidentally inspired by John Lennon, and “Forgotten”.“Forgotten” is a somewhat sad yet poetic song for me – I imagine this song being about someone in a loving and committed relationship who goes away for a while then when they get back they forget what it’s like to truly love someone with such passion. Scott may have had a different meaning to it, but that’s what comes to mind when I hear the song.
Another one of my favourite seasons from this unforgettable collection of songs is “Spring”. A song that specifically comes to mind when listening to the album is a song called “Rewind”. My interpretation of this song is it encourages you to get out there and live every moment to the fullest because you can’t suddenly go back and turn back time but you can relive these experiences through your thoughts and feelings. The “Summer” CD has a very experimental vibe to it while “Autumn” is, well, have a listen and find out for yourself.
After listening to Scott live I have a bigger appreciation for his music because I felt connected to each of the songs. Scott had the whole room under a trance with his musical gift and the audience left Trees Coffee House looking content and wanting more.
