More About Scott and the new album, Rest Assured:

Solo recording artist, singer, multi-instrumentalist, and award-winning songwriter Scott Cooley defies easy description in today's music world. His singing voice is not his strong suit, he is far from being a virtuoso at playing acoustic guitar, bass, percussion, or harmonica. He blends many genres and styles of music while making it distinctively his own unique brand.

It comes from the heart of someone passionate about music, someone who makes the best of the talent he has through attention to quality craftsmanship despite a lack of any formal training. Without natural gifts as tools, he makes up for it with equal parts creativity and sweat equity.

You'll hear a deep thinker, a soulful expression of a midwestern values, and a strong spirit behind these songs. You won't hear the automatically-tuned vocals, the virtual instruments, or the perfection or polish of today's popular music, nor will you hear the poor quality of songwriting that comes with it. Instead, you get a refreshingly real sound that might be described as Americana, folk, rock and roll, blues, or roots, with hints of more exotic styles here and there.

An independent, DIY aesthetic is used to deliver songs ranging from the thought-provoking to the funny to the poetic, and you can immediately hear a fun, interesting perspective on the world from a guy who majored in English in college who has since gained some considerable wisdom via both the American experience and introspection.

Quietly and without much publicity, this non-performing musician has steadily released a solid catalog of wonderful material that at once begs for professional vocalists and session musicians while at the same time allows the potential these songs would have for such people to shine through in a real and exciting way. Through word-of-mouth recommendation and social sharing, the fan base continues to grow with each release.
