Our Best Work Yet
We’re proud to announce that we have just completed our best work yet. We took all the time we needed to produce, track and mix these songs, and we think it shows! We’d love your feedback. Check out “Weightless” below, by Atlanta/Athens-based rock artist Patrick Scott.http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F3544693&show_comments=true&auto_play=false&color=f71112
He’s toured the country as a musician for Zac Brown‘s label, shared the stage with Ryan Newell of Sister Hazel, and even opened for Bon Jovi at Philips Arena. “It’s all about the relationships you keep with people,” says the intensely likable Scott, who at 24 has made more connections than many musicians make in a lifetime. But while loyalty and respect have paid off for the singer/songwriter, Scott rarely acknowledges his most important asset: His music is good. Really good.
With his soon to be released EP In This Room, Scott proves that he is ready to shine as a solo artist. “In my previous band [Beyond Tomorrow] the (co-written) songs were about hypothetical situations. These new tracks are very personal and come directly from my own experiences.” No where is this more apparent than on “The Edge,” a powerful piano-driven rock ballad. It is a story of painful reflection and missed opportunities. These lyrics aren’t just cobbled together…the sincerity and conviction in Scott’s voice is real.
Don’t be fooled by the sultry subject matter though. Patrick is a pop craftsman at heart and much of his music has smash hit potential and crossover audience appeal. He’s currently auditioning for a spot on the Bravo Channel’s new reality TV series called “Hit Makers,” which will pit some of the country’s best unknown songwriters against each other in front of a national audience. He’s already breezed through three rounds of cuts and his chances of getting casted look very good. With his undeniable talent, solid work ethic, and his knack for developing strong relationships, Scott is poised for great things. “Of course it’s my art and I’m always gonna write and play music,” he explains, “but I want to be doing this for a living. I’m a performer 100% and I want people to enjoy it and share in it with me. My ultimate goal is to make money doing what I love.” “In This Room”, due out for release in fall of 2010 will feature a combination of Scott’s full rock songs as well as some acoustic recordings.
