VÂN SCOTT

Scott has been gaining momentous recognition as the solo artist, Vân Scott. His latest single “Poster Boy” (Honorable Mention Winner of the USA Songwriting Competition) out April 17, follows the overwhelming response to his debut singles/videos, “Tough Love” and “Die Young,” released in September and November 2019, respectively.

 

“Poster Boy” is a confessional song about Scott’s experience overseeing music at his church where he was often revered to a point of unease.  A lofty position he’s never been comfortable or happy being in. “People tend to put you on a pedestal when you hold that kind of position,” Scott explains. “I was constantly treated like I could do no wrong, and that’s a dangerous place to be. I felt like I had to play a role and hide my flaws, and so it was hard to be myself. ‘Poster Boy’ calls out that unhealthy expectation of perfection, whether self-imposed or brought on by others. It’s meant to give the listener permission to be human, since mistakes are inevitable for us all.”

LORD & LADY

Scott co-founded the duo, Lord & Lady, in 2015 with songwriting partner and friend, Rachel Panchal. Together,

they have released 2 original EPs and 5 holiday singles.

 

Among the many accolades they have received for their music is the 2016 International Acoustic Music Award for

Best Group/Duo for their debut single, "A Little Longer." Additionally, their unreleased song, "Smoke Is Rising,"

written with Brett Boyett was a semi-finalist in the

2017 International Songwriting Competition.  

 

The pair has also received high praise for their interpretations of popular cover songs. Scott's arrangement of the group's

"La La Land Medley" has accumulated over 5 million views on YouTube, and was even featured at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games during the pairs free skate by Kristina Astakhova and Alexey Rogonov (Olympic Athletes from Russia).

 

Lord & Lady's growing online fanbase enabled them to successfully crowdfund their sophomore, No Ghost EP,

for which they enlisted the talents of veteran music producer, Steve Shebby (Neon Trees, We the Kings, Hugh Jackman).

LOS ROBLES

Scott has been a member of the Los Robles Master Chorale (LRMC) since 2016.
