Scotty Handy, is a singer-songwriter, pianist and guitarist from Washington. His new single Summer’s Day has just dropped and is available from all good streaming sites. With it’s lo-fi production and live lounge synth ambience it’s a track that Scott hopes will instill some much needed sunshine in people’s lives.

Here, Scott tells us what inspired his latest release…

I as a musician have been inspired by many fellow professional musicians who I have had the opportunity to meet when waiting at Music Venues in the North East and their Inspirations, Devotion, Passion and Patience is really what makes me understand what it is that makes me be inspired by those celebrities which I have been so fortunate to meet. The devotion of the musician was one reason why I was inspired by them, but as well as their patience when first starting out in their careers, as most professional musicians have to wait before they become big stars. Therefore with the musicians being in the same career as myself makes me even more inspired by them when I get their autograph or meet them.

In my Brand New Release, “Summer’s Day”, which is due out on all platforms on the 4th of November 2020, I wrote the music before I started to write lyrics. It was massively inspired by wishing for a better Summer next year, that’s why I tried to go for Summer Vibes and really wanted to make the listener feel like they are sat on the beach, enjoying the sun. “It’s a Summer’s Day” was the first lyric that I wrote, which I sang in the first verse. I continue to sing “sitting on the beach all day”, giving off the summer vibe and how everyone wants to be sat on the beach in the sun. It didn’t take long for me to write the lyrics to the song, I began to make the music and it flowed really well. I have a Private Link to the song which I have shared with friends and close family, but there’s a Pre-Save option on Spotify and other platforms for when it is released on the 4th of November.
