That's Why I Called You
When you first see Scott Hammock perform, you are captured by the incredible energy that he brings to the stage. Then you hear the crystal clear tones in his tenor/baritone voice and realize this artist has it all. His lifes a song, he writes the song and he delivers the song as if he is one with it. Whether he\'s standing in front of the microphone backed by a highly energetic band or sitting on a stool, leaning over his guitar and belting out the tunes he\'s written you know he was born to do this. Born in Eugene, Oregon, Scotts dream was to be a singer, a songwriter and to share his music with the world. Inspired by his moms love for music, he grew up tickling the keys on her piano and strumming a few chords on her guitar. He drew off of influences like Kenny Loggins, James Taylor, James Ingram, AC/DC, Sublime, Michael McDonald, Aerosmith, Garth Brooks and Cash. He\'s opened for acts from Trick Pony in Colorado to Rascal Flatts in Ohio. He's performed the casino circuits in Dakota and Arkansas and in venues in Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Nebraska, Oregon, Ohio, Washington, Florida, Tennessee, Florida and Indiana. Hammock co-produced his first two albums, Good Start at a Bad Idea and That\'s Why I Called You. They are an amazingly varied and energetic collection that ranges from love songs to smooth ballads to flat-out rock n roll. It's all the genres of music he loves combined into a sound that is exclusively his.
