Scott Dibble is a SOCAN award winning Canadian singer-songwriter, recording artist and producer. The son of high school teachers, he was raised in Toronto, and began taking his bands to perform in local clubs during his teens. He was signed by WEA records in 1989. That led to the release of his first record under the name "Watertown". Produced by Terry Brown, "No Singing At The Dinner Table" saw the release of two singles, "Paper Walls" and "If We Turn Out the Lights”. The second single charted as high as 5th spot on the AC charts.

In the early days, sharing the stage with the Barenaked Ladies, he co-wrote "New Kid On the Block" from BNL's first record "Gordon". This led to Ed and Steve guesting on Scott's second record "One Phoebe Street". That record featured Toronto musicians Colin Linden, Jonathan Goldsmith, Gordy Johnson/Big Sugar, and Gary Craig. Radio releases include "Run To You" (featuring the backing vocals of Ed & Steve from BNL) and "That's What Love Is For".

After the second record, Scott obtained a release from his commitment with WEA. This provided the opportunity for Scott and Mark Sterling to join David Martin as partners in the revamped group “Hemingway Corner”. Their 1995 record "Under The Big Sky" produced a number 1 single "Big Sky” and the multi-format crossover top 10 single "Watch Over You" (which won the 1997 SOCAN award). A third top ten single was the cover of Neil Young's song "Tell Me Why" (which also appeared on the 1994 Neil Young tribute record "Borrowed Tunes”).

Through the late 1990s and 2000s Scott continued to write, record and tour. He also began to shift some of his focus to producing and writing for other artists. This led Scott to open his "Hidden Sound Studio" in 2007. In 2011 he co-produced, co-wrote, recorded and performed on Hemingway Corner's third release "Speed Of Life” and co-produced and recorded Jon Brooks record "Delicate Cages", as well as Arlene Bishop's record "24 is 12 twice or 24 for short".

In 2012 Scott embarked on building his second studio, and completed it in 2013. Currently he is working on his solo record, followed by a tour in 2015.
