I'm so glad I'm here 

I have been fortunate to land where I am today; as a person, a man, a father, a husband, a songwriter, and music therapist, I am right here. As far as music goes, now and then I like to look…

newness and collaboration

While I definitely have enough old punk material to close out 2019, I just don't feel like sharing it anymore. So, thanks for listening and downloading the Raspberry stuff. Other old bands I was in will have to stay…

Raspberry with Phil Ek Part I

January 6, 2019: new song on rainy evening in SF

Here is a new song I worked up over the holidays. While it's true that it has many elements of other songs I have written, there seems to be something worth chasing in this particular untitled tune. What shall I…

Scott Songs: December 2018

Song: Golden Boy, Glenda, and Shamoo

I wanted to tell a Christmas story in the story-telling style of Tom T. Hall and Johnny Cash. Here's what I came up with. It's the story of three misfit barflies accused…
