Hailing from Houston, TX and now residing in Portland, OR - up and coming R&B artist Scooty is set to make big waves in the music industry. With a unique and individual style, Scooty walks the line between a soul singer and a rapper, but it's her voice that will blow you away with one listen. On her latest single "The Difference" Scooty sounds right and home and perfectly in the pocket while breaking down everything that separates her from the average artist and woman. Produced by West Coast artist TOPE (Slum Village, Blu, Gift Of Gab) "The Difference" is gritty yet smooth all the same time, drenched with bass and well-placed guitar licks. Marking the first official single from their upcoming album, Scooty and TOPE give us just a taste of the possibilities of where this collaboration can go on "The Difference," leaving listeners hitting rewind by the time the track ends. With only a handful of releases under her belt, it's only a matter of time before Scooty in on the worldwide R&B radar.Artist Spotlight - Spizal | @estabrec
