Jersey born Norton Scott writes songs that immerse listeners into a life swept away by complex relationships and world events, always seeking an underlying truth to tether the soul. His style has been called "modern folk", with two mics and a harmonizer lifting his rich, acoustic sound skyward.
Scott began playing music at the age of five by following his guitar playing father's fingers on a ukulele. He would continue playing guitar and go on to study classical piano before trying his hand at songwriting. Inspired by rock and folk classics from the 60s and 70s, there was always a song finding its way onto an old four-track. Dreams of a music career would persist, but having been raised in a rural farm community with few neighbors meant music as companion was always more important than as vocation and he would eventually refuse offers to take his talents beyond the personal sphere.
After several years of fronting rock bands while quietly pursuing a filmmaking career, Scott became inspired to return to the start. Now residing in Philadelphia, he's built his "star vehicle" to once again explore the musical universe. Wherever it takes him, he's learned that flying into the unknown is often its own reward.
