In Christ, Scott Scott Towaij is a multi-instrumentalist who has been playing music and singing for the past 27 years in a number of different bands. He plays folk, rock, funk, blues, jazz, country, bluegrass, and latin styles creating a very diverse sound. His debut Christian album entitled 'Your love has set me free' is a fresh and exciting musical journey that really is a backdrop to his salvation story. Scott survived sexual, physical and emotional abuse as a child that lead him down a twisted path of drugs, alcohol, women and involvement with bikers. 'Your love has set me free' is the result of his dramatic salvation and celebration of almost 20 years clean and sober. Scott wrote and recorded a song called 'One step at a time' for a friend suffering with Parkinson's disease. The song was so well received that it has become the official soundtrack for the 'Pass the Baton for Parkinson's' DVD that promtes the event of the same name in the school system. His 1996 debut secular release entitled 'Pushing Through the Pavement' was a unique marriage of different musical styles and influences. Scott's unique brand of 'Politico-Rock Message Music' tackled important issues lyrically while creating something very unique that was almost reminiscent of Van Morrison's Street Choir. The song 'Don't blame me I only live here' made it up to position number 7 on a number of the Candian rock charts and he received major airplay on 20 rock stations accross Canada. The disc was also syndicated to all 30 CBC afternoon shows where it received significant airplay as well.
