Jonathan Scott connects with fans on a deeper level with music that inspires freedom
LITTLE ROCK, AR – Jonathan Scott is on a mission to save people’s lives … through music.
The Midwest native of Little Rock, Arkansas, is an aspiring up-and-coming R&B artist who has been singing since he was a young child. He started as a singer in his local church and also participated in performances in elementary school. In fact, it was an impactful moment one year during elementary school that fully pushed him into the world of music. He and a friend were chosen to sing The National Anthem on a local radio station – Kissn 96 – and the praise and notoriety he received after that event continued for many months following. He loved it so much that he’s been chasing that high ever since.
But it’s more than just chasing an adrenaline rush for Scott. What he truly loves is the deeper connection that often comes through the powerful bonds of music. It’s a power he’s seen at work time after time over the years which he hopes to bring to bear with his new single “Let Me Tell You”. The single is currently available across all digital streaming platforms. Featuring a fusion of Hip Hop and R&B, the song is about the deeper connections of romantic love that come when a man and a woman truly are transparent with one another.
“It’s about showing her what you’re about and proving who you are as a man,” Scott said. “When I make music, I want to make something for people to come back to again and again and get that good feeling that they got the first time they heard it. I want them to be able to take my music and use it so it can change their lives, in a way. Music can help people through problems because there are things that we relate best to through music. If my music can help change people’s lives as well as giving them good quality and I’m getting to do what I love behind it all, then that’s something I want to do for the rest of my life.”
Scott’s unique sound and style also help him stand apart in a crowded music industry. He’s an artist who likes to tell a story while he’s putting people in a specific mood. He points to artists such as Neyo and Mario, or newer artists such as Dwayne Cook, as inspirations for crafting that unique sound and style. As he has studied other artists and developed his own sound, he said he’s honed in on some specific things that he loves to create through his music.
“I like to tap into how I feel at the time and use that to inspire other people to be free through my music,” he said. “I even have a song called ‘Be Free,’ which is about being free to who you are and being free in your life. That’s my approach to music and something that comes up often through my songs – that idea of being free and feeling free and doing things freely on your own.”
Scott said fans will be able to check out more of his music in the months to come as he’s working toward an album that will likely drop sometime early next year. “Be Free” will be available before that in the next couple of months, while his most recent hit “Let Me Tell You” is available now.
