ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Songwriter Scott Beckman already has more than a few accolades to his name. In 2000, the band he was part of was awarded a CGMA award for “Favourite Live Band”. In 2003, the same band was nominated for a Canadian Vibe award from songs that are heard across Canada on commercial radio. On the heels of his debut release as a solo artist, he was nominated for a Toronto Independent Music Award.

Produced by multiple award winning producer Andrew Horrocks, Scott's debut CD (released October 2005) features original, captivating rock/pop songs of love, loss, regret, and happiness in the musical vein of Ben Folds, Sam Roberts, Billy Joel, and Coldplay.

A calm, relaxed, “all good” science teacher by day, and an “energy to the max” rock musician by night, the dichotomy and vulnerability of his life are exposed completely on this record.

"The thought of playing on my own was kind of scary at first. It's a little overwhelming when everything depends on you, as opposed to being part of a team where everyone has some great input on things...I really enjoyed having creative ideas from 4 other people all the time...but there's also something that's a little exciting about being vulnerable in my songwriting and performance. Music has a way of stirring the soul like no other medium can... and that’s something I’ll never be able to rid myself of no matter how old I get."

And stir some souls he will with the release of his debut project. Highlighted by his impeccable songwriting skills, the CD features Beckman’s smooth vocals and crisp piano playing and envelops the listener with its memorable lyrics and emotional delivery. An instant hit for AC radio, Scott's latest offering should not go unheard.

UWO Gazette

...deep, smooth, soothing rock rhythms. This CD is a great listen...
Canadian singer-songwriter Scott Beckman’s debut CD Somebody Else mixes soft rock with heartfelt lyrics. The Stratford, Ont. native’s album sounds as if the words were ripped out of a personal journal or diary.

Somebody Else offers listeners words about wanting, waiting and being in love. Piano driven melodies are strong on this record, which also features upbeat pop-rock.

Tracks such as “Who Am I?” start off slowly and pick up with powerful beats and great vocals, giving the listener a look inside a person who is lost, confused, and in need of direction.

The title track is a slower piano ballad about transforming into someone else to get another person’s attention.

Beckman’s music is deep in the sense that it deals with personal issues through smooth, soothing rock rhythms. This CD is a great listen if you had a bad day, a breakup, or are feeling lonely.

Great Emotional Hooks!
If you're looking for a CD that will pull on your emotional strings, this is for you! Produced by Andrew Horrocks (Northern Pikes, Thousand Foot Krutch), this is a top quality project with songs that range from agressive and fun to moody and intriguing, without losing the listener in the depressing self-loathing that is common on similar records. Scott has released a unique project here - and I'm anxious to hear more from him in the future!
