To paraphrase Thomas Edison, success is one per cent inspiration, ninety-nine per cent perspiration. Perhaps no working songwriter knows this better than Scott Helman. Since impressing the music world with his debut Augusta EP in 2014, Helman has poured his heart and spilled his sweat on stages across the world: wowing both unsuspecting audiences and adoring fans, whether alone with his guitar or alongside his band of musical brothers.
Much of the wisdom gleaned from that blood, sweat and tears can be heard on Helman’s debut long player, Hôtel de Ville, which he enthusiastically describes as “the next step” in his burgeoning career. And from the first listen on, there’s little doubt of what he means.
At just 21, Helman’s come a long way from the talented 15-year-old that blew away executives in a Warner Music Canada board room. Just four years later, Helman had his first platinum certified single with “Bungalow.” Since then, he’s earned two Juno nominations, toured the U.S. and Europe with Walk Off The Earth and performed to massive TV audiences at the 2015 MMVAs and 2016 Juno awards.
