A film and a song
Posted 5/30/2014 5:42:00 PM

Scot Sax is a successful songwriter from Philadelphia.  He had a number one song “I Walked,” with his band Wanderlust in the mid-90s, another #1 with “I am the Summertime" from the film soundtrack to American Pie, and in 2006, he co-wrote “Like We Never Loved At All“ that became a hit for Faith Hill and Tim McGraw and won a Grammy.

Now he’s making a documentary called “Platinum Rush; a film by a songwriter.“ To help fund the project, he reached out to friends and fans through Kickstarter to donate money.  I dove right in because I’ve always believed in Scot’s talent.

The way Kickstarter works is, Scot offered incentives to pay back his donors. In my case, I chose the incentive that he write a song about me. I’ve posted it here.

I was the first person to play Scot’s original music on the radio back in the nineties when I had my show “Street Beat” on WMMR, and that’s what he wrote the song about. 

It’s fun to be part of a project like this by donating money to the cause. I’ll always have the song Scot wrote about me, and I wanted to share it with you. (I’m gloating, I know….)

I’ll keep you posted about the film. I can’t wait to see it!

To find out more about Scot, read his bio.

I wrote an article about him late last year called How Music saved Scot Sax
