Scott Wilcox has been writing music since he was 12 and mother says since only a toddler. But it wasn’t until a lucky break in 2011 that world saw and heard Scott Wilcox for the first time. Scott was a special education teacher in Wisconsin when a student came to him and called him a hypocrite. When he asked why, the student said, “Everyday you tell all your students to find their calling and then follow it with all their passion. But here you are, with all this musical talent and you’re doing nothing with it. Doesn’t that make you a Hypocrite?” After that experience Scott decided to try playing out live. Three weeks in to the experience, he sent a song Called When You Know Better (https://soundcloud.com/scott-wilcox/when-you-know-better) to the Oprah Lifeclass Show. Oprah loved it enough to ask him to sing it live on the show (https://youtu.be/eqKkFmpjtHQ). Since then Scott’s music career has taken off and he plays over 220 shows per year including two annual national tours. Scott won the Bob Dylan Songwriting award in 2012 & 2013 and sang on the Super bowl Babies Choir Commercial for Super Bowl 50 (https://youtu.be/9KqekigARfE). This year Scott’s song Grains of Sand (https://vimeo.com/152129756 Grains of Sand) was rated #1 on the N1M digital music charts and his song Holiday Road was made into a music video (https://youtu.be/LweFONp7yjE).
Scott original music is a soulful acoustic country and blues he calls Americana blues. It comes directly from a front porch in the upper Midwest and resonates to us all. His performances are more than music, they are an experience of stories and music that will make you laugh, reflect and miss home a little bit.
