Not Martha

album release: save you from yourself

Scott spent most of last year writing, recording and planning for his new album, Save You From Yourself, which officially on sale today. Congratulations sweetie, I’m so proud of you!

Scott had some help producing the album, much of the recording was done in the home studio of Jim Santanella, and the photographs used were taken by Scott Mongrain. Interestingly, I got a note from ReeBeckiSupergirl a few months back, we had exchanged notes a few times over the years and at some point she figured out that my Scott and her Scott were the ones who had been traveling out to take pictures of melting ice cream and bicycles together! Seattle is sometimes a very small town.

Scott had lots of local musicians on the tracks — Jerin Falkner, Michael Spaly of Creeping Time, Alissa Jandt of Everyday Jones, Laurie Katherine Carlsson and Jim Santanella. Everyone is a fantastic musician in her or his own right, Scott often shares gigs with all of them, and you should check them out. If you live in Seattle, keep an eye on the shows page, gigs tend to be laid back and in comfortable spots with good coffee or beer.

If you’re interested you can listen to and purchase Save You From Yourself at, at CD Baby and at

This is a sweet little detail, when you lift the cd out of it’s tray you see this:

Rita is his grandmother, who passed away last year, still feisty, at age 90.
