Singled Out: Scott James

Today Scott James tells us about his song, "Garden," from his brand new EP, Destinesia, which is being released today (January 29th). Here is the story:

"Garden" is one of six songs on my new EP, Destinesia, and it's the first song that I've recorded on piano. I had started messing around on the piano a few months before the song was written. The melody for Garden came about accidently one day as I was sitting at the piano and tinkering around. I realized I was actually playing something that I liked and musically made sense to me.

The lyrics for "Garden" followed quickly and naturally. They came when I woke up one morning after having had an amazing day the day before. It was the type of day that everything I could have imagined going right went perfectly and things that I would never have imagined happening had happened. When I woke up that morning I felt like the day before wasn't even real. I felt like I was in this new place and I had forgotten how I had gotten there. "Garden" is about trying to figure out how I arrived in this new and wonderful place and wondering if I can stay there. This really fits with the whole concept of Destinesia. If you've ever gotten to where you were intending to go and then wondered why you wanted to go there in the first place that's Destinesia.

Musically, I tried to keep this song as simple as possible. I wanted it to be a song that brings peace because that's the way I felt when I was writing it. This is what I was trying to achieve from the music video as well. The garden we chose for the location was not lavish and fancy full of bright flowers. Instead, it was a simple farmhouse garden, somewhat overgrown, but very peaceful and serene. I'm very happy with how it came out in the end.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself as you check out the official music video here and learn more about the Scott and the EP right here!
