- Country Pop Musician
Country pop artist Scotty James quickly amassed fans and garnished the attention of industry in 2011 after his debut pop single “Wanna Be Loved” charted # 20 on Canada’s AC Billboard which earned him a Canadian Radio Music Award for best Mainstream AC Artist in 2013. Prior to getting discovered and independently breaking onto the Billboard Emerging Artist Chart and winning a BellMedia Emerging Artist award, Scotty James spent a year serenading people door-to-door to raise funds for his music career.
I like the arrangement - very commercial with still time given to the banjo, and the mix is extremely professional. Builds well without any R&B drum loops on the verses (a pet peeve of mine). The lyric, while a little generic for my liking, is nice enough and has a romantic edge and I'm sure young women will like it. Personally, however, I don't like the vocals, but it's not that they're incompetant, that type of voice just doesn't sit well with me. It's very pop, a little whispery. Still, I think it's very radio-friendly and will be a hit live.
