Scott was told to give up his dreams of being a successful artist and be someone that he is not; his latest single 'Don't Take Away My Purpose' is a defiant response to this. Scott's music career is precious to him, the songwriter shares; 'I have learning difficulties and having struggled to find job that suits me but having thrived with music I have realised that I have to pursue it because it's best chance that I have at succeeding in life as well as something that I really love'.
It is with this determination that Scott rebuts his naysayer in a calm but fierce rap which opens the song 'Here comes the blame, you're distressed at my Sunday best at me trying my best at something I love, I thank god above, for giving me this gift, I've got talent'.
Scott's down to earth rapping evolves into singing as he shows a more vulnerable side as someone hurt that they aren't believed in or supported in their endeavour. All the while, dreamy guitars envelop his pleasant vocal melodies. This culminates in a life affirming chorus where he gives simple, assertive message; 'Don't Take Away My Purpose'. It's emboldening ear-worm made all the more compelling with the rousing bass, percussion and playful synths which kick and give the song a groove that you can help put move to.
As the song progresses Scott gets stronger in defending his 'purpose' which is reflected in the punchy rock power chords which emerge as well has his fiery vocal delivery. The final breakdown takes you by surprise as an earth shattering rock riff takes over as he belts powerfully like a battle cry punctuated by thumbing acoustic drums which might as well be viking war drums! As the song cools down the listener is taken to an entirely different place as his falsetto backing vocals wash over his deep crooning for a soulful ending which leaves a lasting impression.
