Hailing from Portland, Oregon, Scott Brockett is not your ordinary pop rocker. His music has been featured on over 60 radio stations across the country, he has been included on the Taste of Triple A radio sampler, he won the Portland Idol competition in 2010, and was a top ten finalist for the Seattle America’s Got Talent. After taking time off to pursue a masters degree while also releasing a new album, Scott Brockett is is ready to push to new horizons. After leaving a mark on the northwest music scene with his former group Holding Out, Scott is now well into his solo career and crafting tunes that manage to combine the emotional impact of soul with the grit and energy of pop-rock.
Armed with a powerful voice, an electric guitar and an extraordinary backing band, Scott dives deeper into the journey he started with 2011’s Never Give Up and continued with 2013's This Town, all the while constantly bringing his music to the stage. Now with new songs, Scott is aiming to hit the ground running in the Northwest Music scene.
For This Town, Scott again teamed up with Cory Knowland Studios in Salem, Oregon to record the five songs that make up the release. This Town is truly a bridge between great musicianship and easy listening. It blends classic sounds such as blues, soul, and rock with the vitality and infectious hooks of pop. It takes both the personal and musical elements he explored on Never Give Up and truly pushes them to the next level.
