Jeff Scott
Nominated for a 2014 Detroit Music Award for Outstanding Acoustic/Folk Recording for The Long Way Home, in 2012 for Outstanding Vocalist, and in 2011 for his CD, Begin Again, which was characterized as a stunning collection of songs by the Detroit Free Press, Jeff Scott is redefining the notion of the singer-songwriter for todays adult listeners.  Jeff has just released his third CD, Nola To New York, a return to his pop-jazz-soul roots, and has been performing shows in support of the material throughout the metro Detroit area.

With the release of The Long Way Home on Blue Boundary Records, Jeff moved to a new plateau of songwriting sophistication and honesty, reaching an even larger audience with his beautifully crafted songs, including collaborations with Sally Barris, a Grammy® nominated songwriter.

It has been a long road for the metro Detroit native, who grew up surrounded by the melting pot of singer-songwriter pop, R&B, jazz and rock that defined the airwaves in southeastern Michigan.  Jeff developed an affinity for music early on, and discovered at age 8 he had a natural ability to both play the guitar and sing, as well as write songs.  School bands led to more serious efforts, and from the age of 15 to 19, Jeff and his groups were booked most every weekend for weddings, school dances, society events and corporate shows.  His love of writing was noted at the University of Michigan/Ann Arbor, where he received his degree in creative writing and was honored with Phi Beta Kappa membership.

The culmination of Jeffs initial creative efforts came in the early 1990s, following winning a Best Singer contest sponsored by the former WNIC radio in Detroit, with his song, Show A Little Faith in heavy rotation. After touching the edge of success with The Big Picture (national winners of the Marlboro Music Talent Roundup) and a CD produced by Andre FisherChaka Khan and Natalie Coleand opening act duties at major festivals for Hall & Oates, Richard Marks, Eddie Money and Smokey Robinson), Jeff walked away.  For 17 years.  Worn down by the juggling act of creating music and the business of music, Jeff chose to devote himself to a corporate career, albeit on the creative side of business, which ultimately led to disillusion and a total refocusing on what was important in his life.  Music.

With the release of Begin Again in early 2010, Jeff reentered the music scene with a definitive statement of life, love, hope and redemption, ending his self-imposed hiatus of 17 years. Given the interest in the work, he assembled a group of musicians to replicate the music live.  A second CD, The Long Way Home followed in 2012, featuring a collection of powerful Americana and pop, with the single In California featured multiple times on WDET-FM 101.9.  Since then, Jeff has been a sell-out draw in listening clubs in metropolitan Detroit. He has performed at the areas largest music festivalFord Arts, Beats and Eatsmultiple times, The Fillmore, The Magic Bag, The Ark, Cliff Bells, Dylans, Black Crystal Cafe, Boos, The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and more, and has been featured in HOUR Detroit magazine, and on many metro Detroit television and radio programs.
