Nominated for a 2012 Detroit Music Award for Outstanding Vocalist-Acoustic Category and nominated in 2011 for his CD, Begin Again, characterized as "a stunning collection of songs" by the Detroit Free Press, Jeff Scott is redefining the notion of the singer-songwriter for today's adult listeners.
With the mid-2012 release of his sophomore effort, The Long Way Home, Jeff has moved to a new plateau of songwriting sophistication and honesty, and is reaching an even larger audience with his beautifully crafted songs. Featuring two collaborations with Grammy-nominated songwriter, Sally Barris, and mixed by Grammy-winner Mark Pastorius, "The Long Way Home's" lead single, "In California," continues in rotation at WDET-FM 101.9 in Detroit. And Jeff's live performances with his accomplished band continue to earn accolades for their energy and polish.
With the release of his CD, "Begin Again," in early 2010, Jeff reentered the music scene with a definitive statement of life, love and relationships, and ended a hiatus of close to 17 years. Given the interest in the work, he assembled a group of musicians to replicate the music live...and has been a sell-out draw in listening clubs in metropolitan Detroit. He has performed at the area's largest music festival--Ford Arts, Beats and Eats--for the past three years, The Fillmore, Cliff Bell's, Dylan's, Black Crystal Cafe, and more, and has been featured in HOUR Detroit magazine, and on many metro Detroit television and radio programs.
Moreover, Nashville has listened and approved, and Jeff's songs are represented there by one the nation's premier song placement agencies.
Jeff is the former co-leader of The Big Picture, winner of the national Marlboro Music Talent Roundup. They became festival draws and took on opening act duties for Hall & Oates, Richard Marx, Eddie Money, Smokey Robinson and more. Jeff and his bandmates released one album, The Big Picture, produced by Andre Fischer (Rufus, Natalie Cole) and Woody Woodruff (David Foster, Chicago).
