As a recently signed artist, Scott will be releasing his second single on Cornwall-based independent label Aardvark Records after they heard four new songs and asked to meet up. Scott’s single ‘Down To Earth’ will be released on Friday 7th September.

Scott, born in Middlesbrough, has previously released six EPs independently and played live in venues across the UK and America from San Francisco to Vancouver, Canada, as well as appearing at Glastonbury Festival in 2015 and live on BBC Introducing in Tees.

Last year, in 2017 Scott sold out Jimmy’s venue in Manchester to release his EP In the Garden, which was recorded with a full backing band. With roots firmly planted in the North East Scott also wrote songs for his Ironopolis EP, which were inspired by his hometown of Middlesbrough and the EP immediately reached number 12 in iTunes Singer Songwriter charts in 2015. After graduating from a degree in music at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2010, Scott listened to Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Simon and Garfunkel and Bruce Springsteen for their songwriting and inspired, Scott set out to record his first EP Long Live You in 2013.

Manchester’s cultural press has already reviewed Scott’s independent releases such as The Skinny, Clash Magazine, NE Volume, Telegraph Music and the Manchester Evening News.

Scott’s new single ‘Down To Earth’ goes on sale on Friday 7th September on digital music retail and streaming sites. Aardvark Records have also pressed some CDs. The song was recorded at Red Sand Studios, Chorlton, Manchester and produced by Mathieu Garcia.
