Scott MacKay

Story

“When snow falls in hell, you’ll come around, you’ll put the bottle down.”

With one line you are introduced to the simple, elegant music of PEI born singer & songwriter, Scott MacKay. MacKay’s country-ish songs are standouts, riddled with one-liners that sparkle like Rhinestones on a Nudie suit.

MacKay released his sophomore record, “Twin” in 2015, and since then has spent most of his time holding a pen rather than a guitar. He took a lyric writing class from a professional songwriter (Marty Dodson) and travelled to Nashville to take part in Nashville Songwriters Association International’s (NSAI) Advanced Song Camp where he learned to better his craft. Aside from writing songs by and for himself, he started co-writing and penning songs for other artists as well. 

During these four years, he found that the songs he was writing for himself were infused with humor. Humor inspired by one of his favorite writers, Shel Silverstein. Musically he has reached back into the era of Traditional Country music and has borrowed stylings from the artists he admires most, such as Bobby Bare, Hayes Carll, & Brandy Clark.

Keep your ears open for Mackay’s latest single, “Half of Everything” produced by Daniel Ledwell. A narrative that showcases the absurdity of splitting things 50/50 in divorce. It will be released on February 7th. Right in time for Valentine’s Day.
