Album Notes
Chris Scott is an award winning, professional singer/songwriter who has devoted his life to connecting with others through music. Chris established himself early on as a contemporary folk artist, an adept songwriter and talented musician. His passion is in songwriting and acoustic guitar. He produced his first album 'Now That I'm Back' in 1971 on the Boot Label in Nashville featuring six of his original songs - four of which reached the charts on the Top 40 Songs for Canadian Country Music Radio. In 1992 Chris won Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Album Design and the award for Best Production at the CGMAs for his album titled 'Run, Run the Other Way' which featured 12 of his original songs. He's performed across Canada, the United States and within the UK and was featured as a guest star in country music legend, Stompin’ Tom’s, movie ‘Across This Land.’ Chris has guest starred on many national talk shows such as Edward Glover and The Ronnie Prophet Show in Toronto and appeared as a guest at the CBC Camp Fortune Quebec Concert Series. His songs are about real life situations that people can easily relate to delivered in a tuneful manner. His smooth, strong voice is the perfect conduit for his material yet his songs are versatile enough that many other artists could enjoy success with his lyrics.
Chris Scott was born in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Chris’ parents recognized his talent early on and bought him his first guitar at six years old. He wrote his first original song at only ten years of age when he was hospitalized for eight months after developing an infection as a result of stepping on an old rusty nail. He was featured in his first newspaper article entertaining the other young patients and their families in his ward bringing them some much needed joy over the Christmas season. It was during this time that Chris realized his dream of becoming a professional performer and singer/songwriter.
At the ripe young age of 12, Chris performed in and led a 4 piece band, 'The Young Ones,' which received rave reviews in numerous articles across Canada and the United States. His musical influences during this time were bands such as The Beatles, The Mama's and The Papa's and The Byrds. During his late teen years Chris would often hitch hike to many cities between Niagara Falls and Northern Ontario to perform in hotels, bars and concert halls. By this time Chris had written many of his own original songs and perfected renditions of songs written by some of the greatest folk and country artists of all time – Gordon Lightfoot, Kenny Rogers and the like. Chris definitely had his own unique style and sound which captured the curiosity of a Manager who was interested in representing him.
In a short span of a few years Chris found himself performing across Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom on many national talk shows via television and radio. He guest starred in Stompin’ Tom's movie 'Across this Land' was featured on the double soundtrack album for the movie and in the literary novel 'Stompin' Tom and the Connor's Tone.'. Chris found favor through his songwriting with artists and managers in Nashville and recorded his first album there in 1971 on the Boot label.
As Chris’ music career matured so did his personal life. Chris married and found himself at a pivotal point where he had to choose between pursuing his music career and supporting a family that would soon be growing. Chris decided the only way he would be fulfilled was to find a way that both music and family could possess important roles in his life. Chris decided to focus on performing and producing his music closer to home in Niagara Falls. It was during this time that he produced another full length album, "Run, Run the Other Way,' which achieved awards for Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Album Design and Best Production at the CGMAs.
After a brief hiatus of a few years, Chris is returning to the music circuit with new material hot off the presses that is sure to please audiences of all ages!
