Scott Fuller – Summer Gold

a4110818322_16Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, Scott Fuller began his music career playing clubs, hotels & cruise ships.  Before leaving for Nashville in 04′ Scott teamed up with with Neal Cavanaugh (Dirty Dancing) to form Cavanaugh & Co., a successful Clio award wining music house. Long time friend Chris Camozzi (Michael Bolton, Barbra Streisand) recruited Scott to help co-write songs for three of Chris’ contemporary jazz albums. The song “Swing Shift” became a #1 hit for Chris and Scott topping the Billboard charts for 4 straight weeks in 1998. In the 90’s Scott also collaborated with the amazing vocalist Cecily Gardner. The two wrote many songs in the pop/adult contemporary category. Those song demos were eventually discovered by label owner Gabriel Raya in Madrid, Spain. He remastered those demo’s into “Gardner and Fuller Original Demo’s for his Contante y’ Sonante label. This album featured Cecily and the amazing voice of Warren Weibe. Cecily and Scott had the good fortune to meet Warren in L.A. and invited him to sing on some of the demos. Warren was a talent that comes only once in a lifetime, his vocal genius was admired by the likes of Barbra Streisand, Burt Bacharach, Celine Dion and David Foster.

As a session player Scott has worked with Neal Schon (Journey), Victor Fields, grammy winner Laura Sullivan and Day One. in 1995 Scott co-wrote “Crying in my Sleep” with Neal Cavanaugh and “super producer” Narada Michael Walden (Areatha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey etc.) .

2021 brings the release of Scott’s very first solo album titled “Summer Gold”. Over three years in the making, this collection represents Scott’s love for melody, arrangement and subtlety. Drawing on his love of intelligent pop and contemporary jazz he combines 6 originals with 4 carefully selected cover songs. Scott inlisted the incredible talents of Cecily Gardner, Chris Camozzi, Robert Sall, Norbert Stachel, Tollak Olestad and his daughter Katie Fuller. Future projects include: a folow up album with Cecily Gardner that will include more hidden gems from thier back catalog.
