After touring Canada for 18 months in support of his successful debut “My Future. My Past”, Scott Normandy returns with his sophomore studio album “No Regrets”. At a time when the world is facing increasing uncertainty, Scott Normandy delivers an 11-song album that brings a positive message of hope and happiness, with the title track “No Regrets” leading the way.
With “No Regrets” Scott and the band wanted to capture the vibe and energy of their live show which has earned them a dedicated following across Canada. Working with Producer Dave A. Sturton (David Martel, Jean Leloup), the album was recorded live-off-the-floor in 5 days at DNA Productions in Montreal; a city which has become somewhat of an adopted hometown for the Niagara, Ontario based band.
Scott was once again joined in studio by band mates Mike Tuyp (electric guitar) and Allan Campopiano (drums), with veteran bass player Alec McElcheran (Anik Jean, Jean Leloup) added to complete the line-up. These jazz-trained musicians found a real sweet spot as a unit, creating an alt-country/folk-rock sound reminiscent of a mix of Ryan Adams and Josh Rouse. Highlights on the album include the ultra-catchy title track “No Regrets”, crowd-pleaser “Gone”, the Tom Petty influenced “Never Too Hard”, and the introspective “I Guess”, which features Montreal singer-songwriter David Martel.
The album is being released by Hyperbole Music, a management/label/events production company that founded the Montreal Folk Festival on the Canal and the Decanted Concert Series (www.decantedseries.com
). Outside Music will distribute the album in Canada, with online and digital distribution handled by CD Baby.
After a year filled with career highlights including a stirring performance at the first annual Montreal Folk Festival on the Canal, a cross-Canada tour with Rob Lutes (one of the country’s finest singer-songwriters), and an invitation to perform on “Routes Montreal” on CBC Radio after they became the show’s most-requested band, Scott Normandy has every reason to be optimistic and hopeful with the release of “No Regrets”.
