Scott’s first big song release was “You Are The Reason” in 2017. The song became a huge wedding hit and was later included in his first album released titled Only Human. “You Are The Reason” was later released as a duet with Leona Lewis making it a double wedding song win!

“No Matter What” was released in 2018. The song talks about a relationship between a parent and child and the child’s sexual identity. It could tell the story of a mother and son relationship and be chosen as a Mother Son song.

In 2022, Scott released his second studio album titled Bridges. The first song was released on the album “Biblical”. It makes for a romantic first-dance wedding song.

Another song from the album we would consider the best wedding song in his discography is called “Heaven”. “Heaven” is available as an original pop song, an acoustic version, and also an instrumental.
