A Song Away From You

Scott McQuaig Music

Scott McQuaig is an artist with a unique approach to country and Americana.

Echoing the work of iconic songwriters such as Steve Earle and Townes Van Zandt, McQuaig creates music that’s striking for its vulnerable simplicity. Yet his tracks are richly nuanced and highly dynamic, making for a very personal listening experience. He is one of those artists who writes songs not just to entertain, but to share. McQuaig truly believes in the expressive power of music and loves to come up with one-of-a-kind sonic textures and aesthetics while still valuing honest lyrics and instinctual songwriting.

His most recent studio album is a perfect example of his sound and vision. Tracks like “I’ll Take the Fall for You” and the title cut itself are great example of his broad scope and emotional lyrics, making for a truly memorable formula.
