Press Release / Art & Entertainment / Erik Scott Nominated As Best Producer, Contemporary Instrumental Album, In The 16th Annual Independent Music Awards

Erik Scott Nominated As Best Producer, Contemporary Instrumental Album, In The 16th Annual Independent Music Awards

By Sounni on June 20 2018 | 21 Views

Best known for working with Alice Cooper, Flo & Eddie, Pops Staples, and Sonia Dada, Erik Scott is an independent producer/songwriter who has released four award-winning albums in the past decade

Music Resource Group (MRG) announced Erik Scott as one of the "Best Producer" Nominees in the 16th Annual Independent Music Awards (IMAs), for his album In The Company of Clouds. Culled from thousands of submissions worldwide, the nominees were chosen by both fans and industry panelists. The year’s best self-released and indie label projects will be announced next Saturday March 31, 2018; Scott plans to attend the event at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City.

Scott is a multi-faceted Artist/Composer/Producer who has been a force in Contemporary Instrumental Music since the 2008 release of his solo debut, Other Planets. His nominated album, In the Company of Clouds, has been called "transcendental" and already won both Album of the Year and Best Contemporary Instrumental Album honors at the Zone Music Awards.

Scott wrote and produced the album, making great use of instrumentalist friends on several tracks, and painting with beautiful gospel voices on two tracks. A consistent presence throughout is the graceful steel guitar of John Pirruccello, who is heard on his previous recordings as well. Erik plays melodic fretless, and in his own words "his fretted Frankenbass 1964 Fender, bass-generated sound fx, the keyboards, drum and percussion programs, some wee vocals, and that one mandolin."

Featuring a blend of Scott’s lush, melodic fretless bass, in addition to steel guitar, gentle percussion textures and touches of choir-like vocals, IN THE COMPANY OF CLOUDS creates an ambience that is all at once earthy and ethereal. Since its release in 2016, the album has been described as "emotionally rich", "innovative" and full of "jaw-dropping" sounds; apt descriptions of an album that delivers a heart-opening range of music across nine tracks. The album is self-released by Erik Scott (www.erikscottbass.com), published by Hened Music, BMI, and is now available worldwide. The artist is in the midst of production on his next album, slated for release later this year.

This Saturday March 31st, the IMA winners will be promoted to millions of music fans via online & broadcast promotions, performance and distribution opportunities. Details and complete list of Nominees and Judges are available at www.IndependentMusicAwards.com; judges include top recording artists such as: Tom Waits, Slayer, Bakithi Kumalo, Michael W. Smith, Sepultura, Amy Lee [Evanescence] and many more.

IN THE COMPANY OF CLOUDS is available in physical and digital formats, and can be found in major online music stores and on all digital music outlets; it was a CDBaby Editor’s Top Pick (http://cdbaby.com/cd/erikscott8).
