Scott Stilwell writes songs about everyday things. Scott’s songs, are in their basic form, folk songs. Rooted in stories, they give glimpses into life – fiction and non-fiction. Based on the concept that art is personal, Stilwell also weaves his own stories into the songs, inviting the listener into a shared experience. Born and raised in Iowa, Scott approaches his songs with a Mid-Western sensibility. Having spent some time in Nashville, his songs also reflect the struggle and heartache that lives in every songwriter. This passion fuels the spirit and initiates the drive to create that “next great song”; frankly, any song will do – because it is what we were born to do.
