“While there is a certain joy in discovering edgy music that reimagines the rules, there is another type of joy in discovering music that is new and fresh but sounds deliciously familiar.”
About Scott Krokoff
With a rich sound drawn primarily from his love of 60s and 70s music, New Yorker Scott Krokoff (pron: Crow-Cough) weaves elements of folk rock & country pop into confessional and compelling Americana. He is an evocative and introspective songwriter, and a deft finger-picker in the vein of James Taylor and Paul Simon with "an edge of Replacements styled alt rock to his strum" (Hiplanta). Scott has opened for Elle King and Grace Weber, played live in Belgium for his biggest fan, and received radio airplay throughout the US, Canada and Europe.
Scott's last record, 2015's Realizations & Declarations, Vol. 2, received rave reviews praising Scott's "terrific imaginative powers" (Bearded Magazine) and his "graceful tales of morality and perseverance" (The Vinyl District) with "melodies that'll have you humming for days" (Nooga) and "music in the vein of 1960s and '70s songsmiths, but also recalling hot up-and-comers like Father John Misty" (PopDose). "Scared Little Boy," one of 7 tracks on the new record, placed as a finalist in the Acoustic & Folk and Singer/Songwriter categories of the 2015 UK Songwriter Contest.
