With a rich and melodic sound drawn primarily from his love of 60's and 70's music, New Yorker Scott Krokoff (pronounce Crow-Cough) weaves elements of folk, rock and country pop into confessional and compelling americana. He is an evocative and introspective songwriter, and a deft finger-picker in the vein of James Taylor and Paul Simon with “an edge of Replacements styled alt rock to his strum” (Hiplanta).
While he has supported his young family as an active lawyer, Scott is adamant that one should never put a shelf life on his or her dreams. As such, many of Scott’s songs are about not giving up and pursuing what you love. 2007’s 'A Better Life' and 2012’s 'Realizations and Declarations, Vol 1' both brimmed with lovely and tuneful revelations that proselytized the art of taking risks in life.
Scott’s latest record, 2015’s 'Realizations & Declarations Vol 2', has thus far received rave reviews praising Scott’s “terrific imaginative powers” (Bearded Magazine), and his “graceful tales of morality and perseverance” (The Vinyl District), with “melodies that'll have you humming for days” (Nooga), and “music in the vein of 60's and 70's songsmiths, but also recalling hot up-and-comers like Father John Misty” (PopDose).
One of Scott's favorite experiences was when his biggest fan flew him from New York to Belgium at his expense to play his 10th year wedding anniversary. That fan later explained to Scott that he was so inspired by his music, he felt compelled to revive his own musical dreams. Scott’s situation is proof positive that if you really want to, you’ll find a way.
