As a singer-songwriter he writes and performs original music as well as cover songs. He regularly gigs in Vancouver and Whistler performing in lounges and pubs, for weddings and private events, wherever the music takes him. Playing a perfect blend of classic and contemporary material “his guitar plucking is clean and confident, and his smoothly soulful crooning is absolutely note-perfect” (Alex Hudson, Georgia Straight). Scott has also been lead vocalist with some of Vancouver’s premier cover bands including Famous Players, and he currently is a lead vocalist with Side One.
Perrie burst on the Vancouver indie-music scene as a lead-singer and songwriter with Redgy Blackout, and their Top 20 placement in the Peak Performance Project in 2011 and 2012.

He met and fell in love with his wife Leora Joy in 2012 performing in a production of The Buddy Holly Story and a year later they formed the indie-folk duo Winsome Kind after travelling and performing on board VIA Rail accross Canada in 2013. They returned home to Vancouver where they recorded and released their debut album in 2014 to rave reviews; “The folk-pop affair is rife with vibrant harmonies, and there's a candy store's worth of sweet melodies” (Andrea Warner, CBC). Winsome Kind recently released a new holiday single “Sweet Second”, and they continue to book shows and are currently working on new material for their sophomore album. Oh, and they are doing all this while raising their beautiful son, Avery Jude. Life is good!
