Jersey born Norton Scott writes songs with the intention that the next one you hear becomes a new favorite. His music immerses listeners into a life swept away by complex relationships and world events, always seeking an underlying truth to tether the soul. What you hear is entirely reproduced live. Scott uses two mics clamped together with one connected to a harmonizer to achieve his rich, unique sound.
Scott began playing and writing music at the age of five, following his guitar playing father's fingers on a ukulele and eventually working his way through classical piano training. He taught himself from there, inspired by folk and rock classics from the 60s and 70s. Raised in a rural farm community with few neighbors meant that music as companion was more important than as vocation, and he would refuse industry offers to take his talents beyond the personal sphere.
After years of fronting local alternative rock acts while quietly pursuing a writing career, Scott returned to the start. Now residing in Philadelphia (by way of Los Angeles and New York) he's built his "star vehicle" not only to reach further frontiers of exposure, but also new heights of escape, truth and understanding. If nothing else, he's learned at last that flying into the unknown is often its own reward.
