On Friday 9th November, Scott Lloyd, 29, based in Manchester, will release his third single on Aardvark Records called Living in the Dark.
Here is the video
Scott is working on a full album with Mathieu producing, at Red Sand Studio in Chorlton, Manchester, which is being mastered ready for release in 2019.
‘Living In The Dark’ follows the story of someone who has become a recluse. A person who was once a part of your life. He is “a talented man”, who’s life has “gone astray” and now “hides away”, as heard in the lyrics. It’s a song about lost friendships and also how someone’s life can turn for the worst at any moment and leave them Living In The Dark.
Scott’s previous single Down to Earth, released in September, has attracted attention from radio including Brian’s Indie Show on Radio Chaos Karibou, based in France and an independent radio station in Manchester gave it a few spins.
After release of his second single, music blog Belwood Music revisited Scott for an interview after reviewing his first single Looking Out to Sea. Scott describes the benefit of being signed to a record label: “I am a solo artist, but now I don’t have to do all the work myself. I still do as much work and self-promotion as I’ve done in the past, it’s just now I’ve got someone doing more and helping me.”
“Singer, songwriter, storyteller. Scott Lloyd has spent the best part of 5 years establishing himself as one of the talented artists on the Manchester music scene…” wrote The Emergence.
“Scott Lloyd knows how to captivate the listener with his storytelling talent,” says James Wilson, Indie Band Guru.
“This promising artist has taken a big step forward and I’m interested to see where this road will lead next,” to quote James Fenney at music review website Belwood Music.
“His style continues to develop and it is clear to me Looking Out To Sea is his best song to date.” From Marsh Towers, plus “Scott is really hitting his stride and his music is set to grow in popularity. He is a hard-working singer/songwriter who definitely deserves listening to…”.
“…music of this quality can carry his name to the highest places.” says Tom Welsh of Design A Gig.
