"Award - Boston Flood wins Pop Rock Track of the Day"

Track of the Day on 30 Aug 2007 in Indie Rock

Potential Soundtrack in Indie Rock, week of 27 Aug 2007

From Garage Band Reviews:
A Blooming Garden Full of the Real Deal
You guys are a legitimate group! I'm not sure how you guys play this song live, but if you could pull it off, I bet the crowd would be more than pleased. The combination of a successful execution of the vocals and the mood enducing strings created a great atmosphere. The arrangement was close to perfect. Building up to the chorus with that bridge created good tension. This is a very radio-friendly song and I would definately not change the station! - Garage Band.com


"Scott Normandy- Building a future on foundations of the past"

Scott Normandy's first solo effort My Future My Past has everything going for it. The 11 track album is packed with honest lyrics and catchy hook choruses tightly wrapped in pristine pop/rock folk. Just think John Mayer without the ego.

"I put my heart and soul into each song. All the songs are about the past but the album is my future," Normandy said on his solo start. By the sound of his debut, Normandy's future should be bright and promising. Catch Normandy in his humble beginnings before his intimate sold out cabaret shows turn into amphitheatre performances. - The Concordian


"Award - No Disguises wins Folk Rock Track of the day"

"Great countriesque production. Sounds like a folk/country classic.
This track is radio-ready.
Reminds of Tom Petty's early work. "

"Cool Space Turns One"

Cool space turns one

Dave Cool helms the Centre St-Ambroise (5080-A St-Ambroise), an intimate performance venue smack in the middle of the current ferment of Montreal’s southwest.

“We have low income housing, shoddy apartments, condos, old folks’ homes, cafés popping up, all these components right in our immediate neighbourhood,” says Cool. “It’s a community in transition.” The Centre has hosted 150 live shows over the past year, along with special workshops, book launches, film screenings and last summer, a folk festival right by the Lachine Canal, on the St-Ambroise terrasse.

The Centre is celebrating its first year in operation this Saturday, Dec. 13 at 8 p.m. with a special concert featuring francophone singer-songwriters Anique Granger and Mathieu Laberge, pianist Nir Blu and Scott Normandy.

“Scott’s not going to play a venue this size much longer—he’s an artist on the rise,” says Cool. Dave Martel, who played the Centre’s inaugural concert, will be making a special guest appearance. $10. - The Montreal Mirror


"Garden City's Scott Normandy to play Cicadafest"

"... the singer/songwriter, whose music has a folk rock, alternative country sound influenced by the likes of John Mayer, has seen some rapid success, especially in the competitve music scene in Montreal." - Niagara This Week


"Scott Normandy launches his debut CD My Future My Past tonight in St.Catharines"

"Local musician launches debut CD, My Future. My Past at Westview Church in advance of forthcoming tour..." - The Standard - May 24th, 2007

Bio

After touring Canada for 18 months in support of his successful debut “My Future. My Past”, Scott Normandy returns with his sophomore studio album “No Regrets”. At a time when the world is facing increasing uncertainty, Scott Normandy delivers an 11-song album that brings a positive message of hope and happiness, with the title track “No Regrets” leading the way.

With “No Regrets” Scott and the band wanted to capture the vibe and energy of their live show which has earned them a dedicated following across Canada. Working with Producer Dave A. Sturton (David Martel, Jean Leloup), the album was recorded live-off-the-floor in 5 days at DNA Productions in Montreal; a city which has become somewhat of an adopted hometown for the Niagara, Ontario based band.

Scott was once again joined in studio by band mates Mike Tuyp (electric guitar) and Allan Campopiano (drums), with veteran bass player Alec McElcheran (Anik Jean, Jean Leloup) added to complete the line-up. These jazz-trained musicians found a real sweet spot as a unit, creating an alt-country/folk-rock sound reminiscent of a mix of Ryan Adams and Josh Rouse. Highlights on the album include the ultra-catchy title track “No Regrets”, crowd-pleaser “Gone”, the Tom Petty influenced “Never Too Hard”, and the introspective “I Guess”, which features Montreal singer-songwriter David Martel.

The album is being released by Hyperbole Music, a management/label/events production company that founded the Montreal Folk Festival on the Canal and the Decanted Concert Series (www.decantedseries.com). Outside Music will distribute the album in Canada, with online and digital distribution handled by CD Baby.

After a year filled with career highlights including a stirring performance at the first annual Montreal Folk Festival on the Canal, a cross-Canada tour with Rob Lutes (one of the country’s finest singer-songwriters), and an invitation to perform on “Routes Montreal” on CBC Radio after they became the show’s most-requested band, Scott Normandy has every reason to be optimistic and hopeful with the release of “No Regrets”.
