It’s a song I wrote based on personal experiences, about how even when you’re feeling down, something or someone can provide a light to bring back up.”
Scott’s warm and retro-tinged sound is influenced by the classic soul and R&B acts he listened to while growing up like Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross and Teddy Pendergrass. But he also has more contemporary influences such as Alicia Keys, Bruno Mars, Plan B, etc.
