Acclaimed Record Producer, Studio Owner, A&R Executive and Artist Manager Scott Horscroft developed his multi-faceted career by completing an Honours degree in Visual Arts, and spending time abroad conceptualising and constructing Virtual Installations.
Having attained such diverse knowledge and hands on experience, Scott began lecturing at a variety of colleges and universities, specialising in music composition, sound design, production techniques, music technology and experimental video. He also spent considerable time on the other side of the studio wall, composing and performing complex sound pieces such as “8 Guitars”.
In 2002, Scott steered his course into full-time music composition and production working as a mixer, engineer and producer. He facilitated his skills by designing and developing Big Jesus Burger, a state of the art recording studio which has quickly established a reputation as one of Australia’s premier and most sought after facilities. Scott cut his teeth in production working with the best of the best, achieving critical acclaim and ARIA Award winning success with some of Australia’s most credible artists such as Silverchair, Birds of Tokyo, The Presets, The Sleepy Jackson, The Panics, Little Red and countless others.
Scott’s ability to connect with artists and translate their vision into a sonic landscape has made him a first port of call. This applies to artists of any genre looking to improve and take their project to the next level, whether it is mixing slamming electro or facilitating the beauty of dream pop, Scott’s approach to music production is not genre specific and is met with a combined understanding of artistic credibility and commercial success.
In 2009, Scott extended and diversified the BJB empire by introducing Archangelsky Music. A new age management company focusing on band and production management. "The objective behind Archangelsky is to bring an elite team of creatives together, combining ideas and skills that will get the best possible results for artists across any genre. Whether that means we facilitate and direct production or manage a band from the ground up. We have a very high expectation level, therefor we work hard to achieve incredible results".
Scott has quickly become one of Australia’s most distinguished industry professionals and his fast- tracked career has most recently forged to new heights being appointed by EMI Records as Vice President of A&R, Australasia. The role will focus on discovering, nurturing and developing one of Australia’s most exciting artist rosters, and there is no doubt that Scott is at the forefront of delivering quality product and artistic guidance. With significant accomplishments increasing by the year, 2011 is set to be an exciting time for Scott Horscroft.
