About this project

Hello. I’m Scott Brookman, a veteran indie-pop singer/songwriter. I live in a tiny hamlet called Beaverdam in rural Virginia. I’ve been writing and recording my own pop songs since the early 80’s beginning on a humble 4-track portastudio making cassette tape albums. These days, of course, my efforts are more professional, combining tracks made in my home studio with tracking done in professional settings. My last two cds For Those Who Like POP and A Song for Me, A Song for You were well-thought of by a small international group of indie pop fans. Each sold well considering the audience size, got reviews across the globe and are still kicking around on Bandcamp and CdBaby. Google “Scott Brookman” and you’ll find lots of results!

My songs take off from 60’s and 70’s pop influences with my own twist as most reviewers and listeners have agreed. I’m known for vocal harmony, interesting arrangements and lyrics that range from sardonic observation and remembered events to humorous fictional tales.

Smellicopter continues in this tradition, but will be an even more professional effort: much tracking was done in ProTools by Palmer Wilkins, an actual real live sound engineer, who will also mix. Though outside players have been a part of my other releases, Smellicopter is brimming over with international talent: from Yani Martinelli in Spain and Roland Wolff in Germany to Virginia locals including Jack Shannon and Jimmy Ghaphery, there’s a lot of great playing, singing and different sounds this time out. I’m proud of these 10-11 recordings.

I have already paid for all the tracking sessions (and wages for a few players) out of pocket and raised money to pay for mixing. I need your help with the final stages: mastering (between $300-$350) and manufacturing of approximately 200 compact discs, (almost $600).

 With your help it’s gonna be tremendous!
