Now Hear This January
In 2021, when Scott DL and his wife Lynne decided to move from Britain to Iowa, Scott reached out to longtime friend Gerard Estella to find out about the music scene in Cedar Rapids. At that moment, Estella was searching for an additional performer to feature in a music series at Brucemore titled Once Upon a Time in August 2021. He asked Scott to join the program along with two singers, one of whom was Canadian vocalist Aurélie Berta. The band for that show included Estella (keyboards), Jim Coates (guitar), and Dave Nanke (drums/percussion).
Scott was chosen in 2022 for Brucemore’s Live from the Artisan Studio series and afforded the opportunity to record an album of original songs, several co-written with lyricist D. E. Pals. With Estella serving as producer/engineer and multi-instrumentalist along with the aforementioned musicians and Lincoln Ginsberg (bass) as the supporting band, Scott recorded 11 songs from May to October. The soon-to-be-released album will be titled Scott DL’s Enlightenment Saloon.
