His voice is gonna recall many big singers once you hear it... Nick Drake, Jeff Buckley, even a little Robert Plant. His songwriting skills, however, take his vocals away from any overt "copying" of any of the aforementioned crooners. Songs like "The Fool's Fooling Himself", "Dream Song", "City Headache" and the very beautiful "Elusive" all point in the same direction - talent and heart. Even the instrumental snippets that are interspersed throughout work nicely, rather than serving as a distraction. Passing Stranger works especially well as a total album listening experience.
Scott will play World Cafe Live upstairs on September 27th.
