"Some Press"

5/10/06
Taxi A&R Services gave a great review of my song "Sun Shine On" on the new disc. High Marks as follows: Good Music in verses, Good Music in Choruses, Well written structure,Good sectional contrast, First line makes you want to hear more, Cohesive, Good use of imagery, Rhymes well, Communicates emotion to the listener, Vocals does help song. "Confident vocals are the glue that holds this track together, Scoot, Good job, ensemble feel, live band/vocal interaction is a plus".
"Vaguely similar in genre to artists like Ryan Adams come to mind, although he doesn't have your soulful range, bluesy phrasing." Americana, Roots Radio and record labels would seem the closest match."
"Your classic R&B influences (Otis Redding) are something to build on..." Great Job!

Scoot Pittman CD Release Party
Creative Loafing STAFF Pick of the Week!!

Scoot is a long established Charlotte singer/songwriter and damn fine musician. His knack for melodic twists and turns is the foundation for his reliable song-crafting skills. -Creative Loafing Magazine 4/9/06

Scoot Pittman is a singer/songwriter who displays an emotive (read: genuine), bluesy acoustic soul rock sentiment which showcases a nice streetwise eclectic sound. He plays all the aforementioned elements with a live and kickin' attitude, and there's no reason why he can't be a star on the touring jam band circuit..." Samir Shukla - Creative Loafing

Instead of describing the show, I'll give you a few adjectives: quick on the uptake, pure quality, up to snuff, all there, on the ball, scintillating, glorious, dazzling, splendid, splendiferous, magnificent, marvelous, palatable, recherch, sensational, stupendous, superb, undefiled, in a class by oneself... NUFF SAID? Topher - Anti-Star.com

"He's the King of all Charlotte music..." Mr. Bill - WRFX (99.7 The Fox)

"A one-man original, acoustic genius..." CharlotteLiveMusic.com

"Scoot Pittman is a Natural..." Erroe Collins - 107.9 (The Link) - Many

Bio

Scoot Music is a fine flavor of Funky Roots Rock. The best way to decsribe it is making a tasty plate of Mofro, Wet Willie and John Mellencamp. Mix that up into a fine dish of Scoot Pittman.
