 They Call Him “Some Kind Of Magician”: Singer and Environmental Activist Jim Scott Unveils Stirring New Album ‘Heart In Another Land’


Singer-songwriter and environmental advocate Jim Scott writes every song as if it is a love letter to Earth and to humanity in his striking new Jazz influenced album.

Shrewsbury, Massachusetts  – August 2nd, 2021  – Rare are rising stars in the industry who shy away from the glamour and luxury and choose to focus on using their music to propagate positive ideas regarding pertinent social issues – like that of climate change and restoring the harmony of mother nature. Jim Scott is an under-recognized talent in the world of acoustic Jazz and Folk music who has made it his business to create music that celebrates the Earth. His exquisite guitar skills and a characteristic sense of humor have earned Jim Scott praise from iconic celebrities in the Folk community, such as Pete Seeger, who called him “Some kind of a magician.”

Jim Scott’s latest new album ‘Heart In Another Land’ is an immersion in Latin, Brazilian, and Caribbean rhythms that lend themselves to Jim’s classical, nylon string guitar. The songs also explore a bit of his Jazz sensibility, with a nod to his many anthems of Earth, but they reflect more poetry of depth and his signature humor in songs that speak to the heart and human condition.

A prolific composer, and guitarist of understated virtuosity, Jim Scott brings a unique warmth and humor with his jazz and world music influenced songs – which is honestly quite rare to find in the music industry these days. He uses well his guitar mastery and clear voice in anthems revolving around the ever-pertinent themes of love, peace, justice, and the future of our dear planet earth. His creations rejuvenate a spirit of community and togetherness for his listeners.
