As a successful songwriter and playwright, I am eager to test the waters as a filmmaker.
G. Scott McCarley
Scott has been an artist since the 1970’s in some form or medium. His list of original songs numbers in the 300’s. His songs are on his own recordings as well as several notable artists. He has performed across the United States in venues large and small. His paintings have been exhibited in many settings and his sculptures have been represented in fine galleries across the US. Scott's plays have been produced on historic theatre stages and his movies have been screened before large audiences.
Scott’s musical influences are rooted in the sounds of Woodstock Rock and traditional country music. His own sound evolved with the 70’s Texas music revolution and has been rounded out by a sense and sound of Folk and Americana.
In 2014 Scott added playwright to the list of artistic endeavors, as his play Dust Bowl Motel debuted to three sold-out performances at the J. Philip Gibbs, Jr. Centre for Performing Arts. Dust Bowl Motel was then chosen for Summer Rep at Sam Houston State University in 2015. Then in March 2016 the play opened at the historic Crighton Theatre in Conroe, Texas. The play was accompanied by an art show also titled Dust Bowl Motel at the Madley Gallery in downtown Conroe. This resulted in three nights of a successful run of theatre and art.
2019 marks the beginning of Scott’s film career. With a few small projects under his belt, the documentary Frank Clay Hill OLD BANDIT TIME will debut around the country. The film celebrates the life and music of Frank Clay Hill, one of Texas’ original cosmic cowboys.
Spending more time on songwriting and perfecting his craft through words has opened new doors for the seasoned musician, which include the theatrical productions. Scott has three CD’s that were released under the SpringStreet Records Label. “Too Old”, originally released in 1997, was a compilation of country and folk reflecting on a 25 year songwriting experience. His CD, “Smiling In The End”, released in 2005, shows the maturity of this songwriter who will leave a legacy of honest and real life songs for years to come. His 2007 CD, ”Highway 19”, chronicles the stories of growing up in a small Texas town, Friday night football games, two chair barber shops, one stop-light and a Dairy Queen. Scott’s forth CD was released in 2016 and is titled Dust Bowl Motel and features music from his play of the same name.
He has been fortunate enough to have been married to the same fine lady for over half his life and is blessed with a wonderful daughter that allows him to spoil two beautiful grand children. If that were not enough, he has had the pleasure of owning several fine horses.
