Scott Moffatt / Bio

Scott Moffatt was born in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada on March 30, 1983. When Scott was five years old and living in Victoria, BC he performed in a Tommy Toys commercial and earned $1,000. With the money he earned he bought a Fender Bullet guitar and within a week had learned to play three cords and write his own song “Walking Down the Road.” In 1990 Scott and his four brothers began performing at country fairs with their parents. In 1993 The Moffatt Brothers released their first independent CD “It’s a Wonderful World”. In 1995 “The Moffatts” became the youngest band to sign a major label recording contract when they signed with Polydor Records in Nashville. Shortly thereafter they released their second album, self titled “The Moffatts”. In 1997 Scott and his brothers signed with EMI Electrola in Koln Germany and basically took the world by storm launching their third album “The Moffatts – Chapter 1 A New Beginning” which to this day hold the majority of sales records for International acts in SE Asia. The Moffatts fourth album “Submodalities” is considered by many within the industry as a template of excellence and is often used as a reference for many of today’s recordings. The album also featured the fastest rising # 1 single in Canadian music history, “Bang Bang Boom”.

In 2001 the brothers parted ways musically for a multitude of reasons and Scott formed a new band with friends Shawn Everett and John Ganz called The Boston Post. In January of 2003 they released their only CD entitled “It’s 99PM”. After two cross Canada tours, and a number of international awards from the Banff Centre of Arts the band packed up their gear.

From there Scott toiled with various projects, but it wasn’t until he was living in Los Angeles that his career began to show signs of life again with his recording of “The Allegory of the City”. All songs were composed, performed and recorded by Scott. The acoustic flavour of the project revealed the musical vibe that would be considered to be the essence of the Scott Moffatt’s sound, a combination of folk, pop, rock and country. It was this project that opened the door for Scott to travel to Thailand and become an in-house producer for Sony-BMG Thailand, where he produced Thai artists Mint, Slot Machine and Brandnew Sunset. He later moved from Sony to Thailand’s music giant GMM Grammy as an in house producer. Other acts he has produced include Getsunova, Daylight, Apartment KhunPa. Scott has also produced American Christian artist Cory Lamb, the Canadian band Roads and country comedian Lefty Nelson. It is his ability to embrace all musical genre’s that lead him to the award of Producer of The Year at the Thai Headbanger Awards 2008.
