Heavy Rotation: Jason Scott

Jan 29, 2018

Every month, NPR Music asks public radio personalities around this country to name a new favorite song and, this month, KOSU featured Oklahoma City musician Jason Scott.

Some of the best song lyrics are open to interpretation. But I'd argue that a simple, straightforward song can be just as fulfilling. "She Good To Me," Jason Scott's sweet ode about his wife, is one such song. The 33-year-old father of two says it takes a special person to put up with a musician's lifestyle, complete with late nights and rooms cluttered with musical equipment. Scott, a former worship pastor, wrote and recorded his debut EP, Living Rooms, in his home studio, giving him the freedom to play around with different sounds. "She Good To Me" is filled with those fun little earworms — the strumming of a mandolin, plucking of an upright bass, swishing of drum brushes, and a sprinkling of Dobro — to go along with a melody and refrain that you'll be humming in your head for some time. — Ryan LaCroix, KOSU
