ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Last Rites for a Dying Heart is the debut album from Long Beach, Ca. singer/songwriter Jeffrey Scott. It is a wonderfully dramatic pop/rock record, complete with timeless catchy melodies, yet still has the ability to suprise the toughest of music critics. From the shimmering Beach Boy like vocals of "Last Rites" that begin the album, to the garage band swagger of "Just Beg" that ends it, Jeffrey Scott's Last Rites for a Dying Heart takes the listener on a exhilerating adventurous journey.


What the critics say .........

"...Scott is a musical force to be reckoned with...this is a maddeningly creative exercise...Last Rites for a Dying Heart, is top of the pops, blending influences as varied as Queen and the Beach Boys, a touch of Vaudeville, and a keen sense of what makes a well-written song sing. Sheer genius, I tell you. Another contender for best-of-this-year honors."
Alan Haber, "Pure Pop" radio show


"...Scott's melodies seem to have a rare knack for being extremely enjoyable, nearly impossible to dislike... the songwriting is absolutely superb, with seemingly endless catchy, yet comfortable melodies..."
Josh Wade, "Antimusic.com"



",,,,This is one trip of an album to listen too...."
Ryan Ritchie, "Press-Telegram"

Grayt News

“Last Rites for a Dying Heart” lives outside of space and time.
Do some musical genres exist independent of space and time (even people)?
Can rock and roll still contain rich harmony, theatrical storytelling, whit and personality?
In our hit-lust culture, is it still possible to create a record that isn’t a compilation of tracks but a single, comprehensive work?

If you don’t think there’s room in the 21st century for the “high fidelity” unpolluted rock and roll sound of the greats (especially the Beatles, Beach Boys, Queen, etc.), this album isn’t for you.
If, however, you’re open to the possibility that “that sound” is still alive and well (not just on the “good ‘ol” recordings of the past) and that it wants to continue to move forward into the future, than give this disk a spin (or never take it out of your player again).

Jeffrey Scott is the real deal – he’s put his time into the “school of rock”, had a three o’ clock fistfight with the bully of personal artistic voice (i.e. “his sound”), and has written his theses here in “Last Rites for a Dying Heart” (lamely put Barbra Walters-esc word picture, but TRUE).

Some say rock and roll is dead – but you can never keep a good man (or sound) down.
