No Love For The Common Man

Self-Released, 2020


Listen to No Love For The Common Man

Steve Scott is a man who wears many hats, and here he takes a break from activism, acting, writing and producing to flesh out a quick listen of roots sounds where country, folk, soul and blues are all part of the warm, flowing equation.

“Rise” starts the EP strong with Scott’s fluid and wise vocals alongside country and soul sounds in the anthemic tune about Detroit, and “Wish You Well” follows with a more firm country spirit as rootsy melodies are worked into the timeless setting.

The back half of the listen includes the backing vocals and fiddle work of “Time Waits For No One”, while “Livin’ On Love” finds a more cautious place to reside with a lush, rural approach. “I Think About You” ends the listen on a high note, as folk qualities enter the formula with immediately memorable results.

Scott’s lyrical prowess is just as well executed as his music, as he addresses political and social issues with insightful commentary, and his smooth, expressive pipes really help illuminate his unique and absorbing brand of Americana. - Take Effect

"Daily Dose of Protest: We Know They Lied – Steve Scott"

Mainstream country music isn’t currently known for its politics. But that hasn’t always been the case. When you examine the historical developments of protest music, country along with other forms of roots music have played an important role. Outside of the mainstream, there is a crop of artists who are helping to bring political activism back to roots music.

One such artist is Steve Scott, a socially conscious Americana singer-songwriter. Scott is set to release a new EP entitled No Love For The Common Man in the fall of 2019. His music well articulates the plight faced by American citizens.

The first single and video off the album “We Know They Lied” is released today on what is Labor Day in the United States. The following statement was made in a press release:

“We Know They Lied is a song of dissent, the song and video both tackle the abuse and devastation wrought by a corporate-duopoly disguised as political parties in the U.S. –false-wars driven by avarice and greed; a routed middle-class; and, a corrupted system of justice and inequality that is fostered by the elite: A punitive-system which is punishingly racist and regressive for nothing more than profit and control!” - THE ONGOING HISTORY OF PROTEST MUSIC
