ARTIST DEVELOPMENT/A&R CONSULTING
Artist Development | Performance Coaching | A&R Consultation


True Artist Development seems to be a thing of the past.  It used to be the A&R department of a record label, or managers, would spend time with their artists and help them discover the true artist within them.  They'd help them find the "right" songs that fit the "artist" not the radio playlist.  They'd work with the artist to help them deliver the song musically.  This nurturing would continue through the recording process and into the live performance. 

Today, that rarely happens.  The record labels expect the managers do handle this.  The management companies are leaning on the record labels to do it.  The A&R departments are simply picking songs and running each artist through the same machine as every other artist.

This isn't Scotty's way.  Call him "old fashioned" if you want, but he believes in spending time with each artist. Learning what makes them special.  Cultivating their strengths.  Diminishing or helping them work through their weaknesses.  Finding great songs that fit the "artist" or helping them craft their own.  And Scotty continues this diligence through all the creative aspects of their career; recording, live performances, etc.
