Runaway Scotty

Christopher Scott Carter, aka Runaway Scotty, is a singer songwriter born in Hot Springs, Arkansas. He began playing music from an early age, including ukulele, trombone, and voice, competing in classically-trained state vocal competitions. While playing in rock bands throughout high school and college, he taught himself acoustic guitar and keyboards. Runaway Scotty’s music sounds somewhere between the vocal richness of Imogen Heap and pop sensibilities of Brandon Flowers.

After serving in the US Navy in Naples, Italy, he released his worldwide debut album, Rock My Heart, in 2015 to critical and fan acclaim. A 2015 review in Independent Spotlight states, “Runaway Scotty’s ‘Rock My Heart’ pulls out all the stops to maintain a quality experience very much worthy of McCartney’s original enthusiasm for the style”. One 5-star fan review on Amazon stated, “both the music and the lyrics themselves are layers deep and the more you listen, the more they reveal themselves. Far from plain, these songs are exciting and engaging.” Rock My Heart is a fine showcase for his hook-laden songwriting skills, strong vocals and richly textured guitars compliments of Anthony Cusenza.  Rock My Heart is available everywhere online for purchase and streaming.

Residing in Crete, Greece, Runaway Scotty is currently working on two additional music projects for 2017. The first is a collection of alternate versions, outtakes, demos, and previously unreleased titles that expand on the elements of Rock My Heart and take it into new territory. Next is a vocally-rich pop album that promises to continue the trend of strong songwriting with a modern electro-pop vibe.
