Scott recently graduated from Berklee College of Music’s inaugural Master’s program at BerkleeNYC where he specialized in Songwriting and Production. While in New York, he worked closely with his Grammy and Oscar-nominated friend, Will Wells (Imagine Dragons, Cynthia Erivo, Anthony Ramos). Scott has also enjoyed mentorship from two Grammy-winning producer legends, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins (Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Sam Smith) and Mike Elizondo (Encanto, Twenty One Pilots, Carrie Underwood).
As an artist, Scott is gaining momentous recognition for the songwriting and performance skill demonstrated by his pop solo project, Vân Scott.

Scott has also seen notable success as a member of the alt-pop duo, Lord & Lady. His arrangement of the group’s “La La Land Medley'' exploded on YouTube in 2016, amassing almost 6 million views before eventually being featured at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games.
Scott currently resides in the Los Angeles area, but frequently visits New York and Nashville for writing and performance opportunities. Sincere and true to himself, Scott’s journey has only just begun. He hopes that his own music encourages others to embrace who they are, and to be their best self.
