Scott Krokoff - Confessional and compelling Americana
ABOUT
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, toured from Vermont to Nashville, played live in Belgium for his biggest fan, and received radio airplay throughout the US, Canada and Europe.
 
Scott's latest 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.
 
While he has supported his young family as an active lawyer, Scott is adamant that one should never put a shelf life on his or her dreams. As such, many of Scott's songs document his passion to persevere with his music, and his three record releases — including 2007's A Better Life and 2012's Realizations and Declarations, Vol. 1 — brim with lovely and tuneful revelations that proselytized the art of taking risks in life as well as the consequences of not taking them.
 
People of all ages have found Scott's music appealing and inspirational, relating to his music not only because of the terrific rhythm and energy each song possesses but because he represents the desire we each have to dream big and live life to the fullest. One of Scott's favorite experiences was when his biggest fan flew him from New York to Belgium at his expense to play his 10th year wedding anniversary. That fan later explained to Scott that he was so inspired by his music, he felt compelled to revive his own musical dreams. Scott's situation is proof positive that if you really want to, you'll find a way.
