Introduction:  Since the late 1990s, Scott has maintained an ambitious pace of self-releasing approximately 1 full-length record every 2 years.  Each has approximately 13 songs.  For someone who has averaged 50 hrs. per week at a regular day job in the past decade, this is a decent level of productivity, particularly when you consider the actual output is often quadruple what is eventually released; and when you factor in marriage, family, friends, home ownership, recreational activities, and other free-time demands, you can only be impressed.  Imagine the accomplishment if time and money allowed Scott to write songs full-time.  As someone who learned to play guitar at age 21, and wrote over 300 songs by the age of 41,  releasing over 40 of his best by age 43 ain't half bad.  You do the math.

About Discographies

The term "discography" was popularized in the 1930s by collectors of jazz records. Jazz fans did research and self published discographies about when jazz records were made and what musicians were on the records, as record companies did not commonly include that information on or with the records at that time.

About This Page

This page is meant to serve as an index to the more detailed Albums page, which allows you to "drill down" into individual pages for each album.  From each album page, you are then able to drill down even further to pages for individual songs on each album.  The listing on this Discography page covers brief and summarized key information  details concerning sound recordings by Scott Cooley, including the titles of the records, the place of the recording, release dates, chart positions, and sales figures, when available.  The links in the Title column of the quick reference table above take you directly to the respective album page for each, which allow for the viewing of many additional details and complete disc information.


Scott Cooley’s discography from 1989 to 1999 was originally released on the cassette tape format to a select group of family, friends, fans and reviewers, with the 2000 self-titled debut album being the first limited CD release, and the 2002 album being the first true widespread public offering.  Over the years since, the Scott Cooley catalogue has been released on CD and as music downloads from a number of digital media vendors. This page lists all of the studio albums only.  Rare live bootlegs are rumored to be in underground circulation featuring Scott playing lead guitar in the blues band Acoustic Jones.  Additional details are listed on the individual album and song pages within this site.  Click an album title column link from the main discography table for more detailed information about each disc.

Studio Albums

Scott Cooley's studio albums have been released on the independent Scott Cooley Records label.  Although the primary format is Compact Disc (CD), these albums have also been released as MP3 albums that are available for download.  Each disc was recorded and produced by Scott himself, including engineering, mixing, and mastering.  Even the artwork, liner notes and packaging was designed and made by Scott.  Each subsequent released disc is considered to be of slightly improved sonic quality than the previous one as Scott has learned the subtle nuances of music engineering.  Similarly, the songs themselves are thought to be of improved quality as Scott has acquired knowledge and skill from research and practice in the craft of songwriting with each release.  In general, each song collection has an underlying theme that ties together the subject matter of each studio album.  The track order of every disc is a result of careful experimentation in song sequencing to provide the best experience for a non-stop listening session. 


It may be of interest to some that all of Scott’s official releases feature only one other musician – his wife Lenore Louise Cooley.  She is credited with album art and photography, co-writing, co-producing, and has acted as a guest studio session musician (courtesy of Buttercup Records) on accordion, keyboard, flute, marimba, and background vocals on just a few tracks, while all other vocals and instruments are performed by Scott himself.
