Former Southbound Drive singer/songwriter Scott Collins has been sharing his unique brand of music all over the Lone Star State dating back to 2008. Having toured the US with Southbound Drive, Scott has also been spreading his wings in the music publishing business with the founding of Side Show Paradise Records.
scott2So how does a guy performing acoustic solo sets make the leap to having a single licensed by one of the most popular sports in the country? Scott started earning his chops playing lounges throughout Austin, Texas before landing with his first band, Suicide Pistols. He later became the front man for Southbound Drive. Their first full album, Agnes, was recorded in 2012 and was produced by Emmy nominee Chris “Frenchie” Smith.
It was a single from that album, Marigold, that initially caught the attention of The Smalls, a UK-based music blog which used the song for one of its global music contests. But imagine Scott’s excitement when NASCAR approached the band wanting to use Marigold for its weekly RaceDay show, which aired before each of the ten races leading up to the Cup Series finals!
Now Scott is hoping lightning strikes twice. He and Chris “Frenchie” Smith have teamed up once again, this time working on Scott’s next solo EP entitled Sleeper. With a production schedule spanning late 2013 and a release planned for early 2014, the sky is the limit…and Scott is chomping at the bit to bring his latest vision to his loyal fans!
