Biography

PEI - born, Calgary based singer-songwriter Scott MacLeod returns in April 2012 with 12 new songs on 'Right As Rain'. Along with his signature country-rock style, MacLeod has found a new voice in songs like 'Out of Line' and 'Kick Me When I'm Down' which draw on his rock'n'roll influences such as Bruce Springsteen.
Produced by Jon Wood, Right As Rain is evidence of MacLeod's maturing songwriting. Tackling tough subjects with his customary sensitivity, MacLeod creates compelling naratives and atmospheres for the characters of his songs. The album was recorded at SunnyDay Studios in East Vancouver where he was joined by Jon Wood, Ryen Froggat, Ed Goodine, and Brain Barr - where evidence of other influences like Blue Rodeo and Neil Young permeate MacLeod's distinct style.

2009 - "This Old Farmhouse" played on ABC's program "Castle", performing for a 3rd year in a row at the NXNE festival in Toronto, and a fall tour of Eastern Canada.

A 3-time finalist in the Calgary Folkfest Songwriting Contest, he has opened for multiple ECMA winner Matt Minglewood, and Grammy Nominees, The Duhks.
