Canadian Coast To Coast is presented by Melody Motors in Melfort.
My Special Guest today is Scotty Kipfer.
Scotty Kipfer was born into a musical family and grew up in small-town Milverton Ontario surrounded by musicians who always encouraged him to play. By three years old, he was tagging along with his dad to perform with the Milverton Legion Band at local nursing homes, with a plastic saxophone in tow. At seven, he was playing fiddle in a family band. He played piano and a number of brass and woodwind instruments until he became enamoured with country music. Scotty was 17 when he finally picked up a guitar and began to write songs.
Since then, Scotty has worked for record labels and management firms, as a radio announcer, a cartoonist, and a touring guitar player with several artists. He even transported bodies for the Ontario coroner’s department and local funeral homes which had a tremendous impact on his perspective.
After spending years working in different facets of the music business, Scotty felt the urge to develop his songwriting. He started spending more time working with a community of writers in Nashville while honing his live show with performances throughout Southern Ontario and the American Midwest.
Scotty would spend the next two years writing and producing the eleven song album. Rooted in the deep tradition of country music, and influenced by artists like Diamond Rio, Vince Gill, Randy Newman, and Willie Nelson, the record is built on catchy hooks, nostalgic melodies, and clever lyrics.
Today Scotty will tell us about the song, the album and lots more.
