Albums


Scott Cooley typically releases one album containing approximately thirteen songs every two years, and has done so on the summer solstice in even numbered years since the year two thousand.  As far as ambition goes, he ain't no Sufjan Stevens, but when you consider the day job, family and other personal interests, it's a reasonable output that affords weeding out time to bring you a quality product.  Each album page allows you to navigate further to subpages containing complete information about each individual song on each album, including personal anecdotes.  The albums are available as CDs for the highest quality sound;  or as MP3 albums or individual song downloads that are lower in fidelity, compatible w/ any device, platform, or player software.  While listening digitally to SC tunes on your smartphone, iPod, tablet or computer, the album & song pages serve as a companion that let you dive in to the visual experience of the LP record album - with complete artwork, lyrics, liner notes, photos, bonus materials and more!
