Bio

Scott Vera was the only child born to young parents Scott and Donna Vera. The growing family welcomed their son into the world on January 18, 1979 in Nyack, New York. A few short years later the struggling family left the bitter cold of New York to pursue a brighter future in sun soaked, Las Vegas, Nevada.

The promise of a better life was never realized. Gangs, drugs, and violence dominated Scott‘s childhood. Fear, anxiety and doubt were constant companions. Home was no safe haven from the pitfalls and dangers of the neighborhood streets. Inside the Vera residence lived the same toxic negative forces that polluted daily life outside. Scott had both parents physically present in the home, but mentally and emotionally, they were absent. They were trapped in the self-destructive lifestyle of drug addiction, gambling, and domestic violence, unavailable to offer their son support or guidance as he navigated from childhood into a young man.

Scott’s mother, Donna, did her best to provide for her son. She managed to keep a roof over their heads and warm food on the table, as she survived through the cycle of abuse and absence with his father. Through it all, she gave Scott the gift of music. Music was a celebration and an escape. The soundtrack of Marvin Gaye, Patty Labelle, Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, Michael Jackson & the Jackson 5, and many more, filled their days with a taste of happiness and hope.

Fast forward to the 90’s, Scott found a hidden talent for songwriting and became heavily involved in the music scene. Well known and respected as one of Las Vegas’ top hip hop artists from 1994 until 1997, he performed all over the city. By the time he graduated high school he had cultivated a loyal fan base before the internet even existed.

In the middle of 1998 Scott met the love of his life. Never one to sidestep his way to his dreams, he walked Michelle straight down the alter, and soon after started his own family. As a young husband and father he knew he had to step up as a man and provide for his family, so he put all of his passion and energy into what he did best—making music. He bought a Yamaha keyboard and a ASR X Pro beat machine and began producing music for his written material. The doors swung open.

About 2001, Scott produced his debut album “The Beginning and Future of Fresco”. Under the stage name Fresco he began performing at bigger venues. The project exploded and earned the attention of BMX bike legend TJ Lavin. “Fresco” was asked to create an introduction song for TJ’s documentary DVD, and with the gig came his first professional credit as a producer. Through popularity and word of mouth championing his production skills, his assistance in audio production was in high demand. During a recording session at Pompei Studios in Las Vegas, he shook hands with world-renowned audio engineer Michael Mancini. Michael worked with some of the biggest names in the industry from all around the globe. It was a quick decision for Scott to accept his proposal to collaborate at Pompei. The pair produced music for the next 2 ½ years before they parted ways to pursue other ventures.

Into the mid-2000’s, Scott’s musical catalog multiplied from dozens of songs to hundreds as created 4 solo projects entirely on his own. “Fresco” evolved to “Scottie Spits” and he invested a wealth of time and money into building his brand. He explored other creative avenues that would escalate him to the next level. From audio production, to photography, videography, and graphic design, he did it all and produced everything from his logo, to his website and marketing campaigns.

Now as an entrepreneurial recording artist he is reaching out to other top recording artists in the industry and accumulating features from Latin sensation Chingo Bling, Pitbull’s Mr. 305 Inc. recording artist Jamie Drastik, and many more.

Through the midst of all this positive momentum, tragedy struck. Scott’s mother passed away from complications with diabetes, and a couple of years after his father passed in a motor vehicle crash. The loss of his troubled, but beloved, parents dealt a devastating blow. But, as he pushed through the profound loss, he emerged on the other side a transformed man. His new perspective on the fragile and temporary nature of life drove him to restructure his lifestyle, which ultimately changed who he was as an artist.

Invigorated and inspired, Scott is at the top of his game. Producing, recording, and songwriting command his daily agenda. Armed with a deeper perspective on life, business and the creative process, he promises to deliver more than just music. He wants to co-create an experience with his audience through his work. He wants to take them on a musical journey they can relate to, and hopefully, they come out the other side with new perspective and clarity themselves. And of course, he wants it to be a fun and thrilling ride!
