Telling Stories through Music.  

  Award winning Composer/Percussionist/Keyboardist, Scott McLaughlin has composed music for national television, radio, short narrative, documentary films, podcasts and live applications. When composing an underscore, he strives to capture the emotional content of the characters in the scene. Story is the master. Scott has scored music for many local commercials and was awarded an ADDY award while with music production company, Music Trax- housed in the legendary Jay Howard Production Audio Studios. With Music Trax, Scott scored numerous projects working closely with local advertising agencies and clients such as Belks, Iveys, Duke Power,Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Carowinds and more.


      As a Drummer/Percussionist, Scott has toured the United States and Canada as the drummer for the Ice Capades. Some of the musical groups he has performed  with  include Little Anthony and the Imperials,The Coasters,The Sherrills, Martha and the Vandellas, Roger Miller,Johnny Tillotson, Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones, Sea Leavell), T Lavitz (Dixie Dregs,Widespread Panic), The Panther Topcats,Rebecca Rippy, Sugarcreek, Flight 108, Charlotte Philharmonic Orchestra, Tosco Music Party House Band and many more. 



 I look forward to working with Scott again and found him to be talented beyond measure, creative, original, versatile and very easy to work with. We had a great, consistent communication throughout the process and I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a down-to-earth musician-composer who is a true artist and a good human being.

He’s a brilliant composer, musician and artist and an all around swell guy! If you need a film score definitely contact him. Scott did a string arrangement on one of my tunes on the upcoming album. It’s brilliant! Check him out!

Scott McLauglin is great to work with and adds a tremendous amount to any project he is involved in.  Scott has scored short comedic sketches and more serious projects.  He can create a soundscape for any universe or mood you need.  The project Scott and I have worked on the most together is the audiodrama “Samwel Sift, Post-Apocalypse Detective.” As it is an audiodrama and the audience has no visuals to latch onto, the score is of super importance.  Scott came on board for the Second Season and did great work.  In the third Season, I told Scott to have fun and see what he could come up with.  This third season is fantastic, and Scott’s talents were a significant part of making that so.  I would strongly recommend working with Scott.  He is dedicated to anything he works on, gives it great thought, and is easy to communicate with.   



“Scott is amazing to work with, he is always communicative about anything that needs to be changed or any setbacks that might occur, so I never felt like I was out of the loop. He is versatile, always open to feedback, and an all-around great person. Scott truly elevated the film. He made the process of composing music for our film genuinely collaborative and I wouldn’t hesitate to reach out to him for future projects!”                                                  -  - Coven  Colby - Filmmaker / Screenwriter /Actor
