Music career[edit]

According to his website, Scott never listened to popular, contemporary music while he was growing up.[2] Scott started his musical career by pursuing a publishing deal for music written for someone else to sing. When Jamie Scott sent his demo tape to publishers, they responded that they liked his voice and wanted him to sing the songs for himself. Because of this, Scott signed a contract with Sony Music in 2002. He then teamed up with producer Toby Smith, a former keyboardist from Jamiroquai, to work on his full-length album. As he was working on this album, Scott played solo shows with only his acoustic guitar. He then played a Blues & Soul magazine tour. Following that, he performed with artists such as Alicia Keys, Ryan Adams, Carleen Anderson, Gabrielle, Kelly Clarkson, Mario Winans, and Ginuwine.[3]

Scott's full-length album, then titled Soul Searching, was scheduled to be out in early 2005. However, due to the merger between Sony and BMG, production got delayed. His song, "Made", is on the soundtrack to the motion picture Step Up.[4] Scott performs the song in the film, and he also has a brief part as the character Colin.[5] He also plays guitar while Drew Sidora is performing "Til the Dawn".

In 2008, Scott started working with music producer TommyD, under the name Graffiti6.[6] The duo's song "Stare into the Sun" has been used by The Sun newspaper as part of the "Seize the summer" advertising campaign and also in the Dutch commercial for Wieckse beer. In late 2011 their music was used on Greys Anatomy, CSI New York and Covert Affairs.[citation needed] The pair signed with Capitol Records in the US. The album Colours was released on 24 January 2012.[7] Their second album, The Bridge, was released independently on 21 April 2014.[8]

In 2015 Scott recorded another solo album entitled “My Hurricane” – his first solo venture released through his own record label - Catherine Records.


In late 2015 Scott founded publishing company Catherine Songs and record label Catherine Records to facilitate up and coming songwriters and artists respectively. Scott is working with writers/producers Mike Needle (One Direction), Dan Bryer (One Direction) and Alex Charles, as well as Catherine Records first signing, singer/songwriter River Matthews.
