Scot Cowan Built Around a Tree CD Review

Giving Up is emotive, touching, and puts forth strong strides in Scot’s inimitable vocals. While the instrumentation represents a major part of the composition, the focal point of this introductory effort is the large range reached by Scott.

Instant Whip is a hopeful track that touches upon rock, alternative, and a hint of They Might Be Giants. The bouncing beat created by the instrumentation here tattoos Cowan’s vocals deep into listeners minds.

Height of the Heavens slows things down; Scot’s ability to make every note matter turns this track into the pinnacle of Built Around a Tree. Little more is needed here than a piano and Scot’s vocals, but what results is much greater than these constituent parts.

Listen to music from Built Around a Tree on Scot’s SoundCloud.

Rating: 8.7/10
