ton considered handing the
demonstration tape to a
record company. They had
several offers. But Norton
was hesitant to place the
tape where it might be one of
thousands.
So Scott encouraged his
father to take charge of the
business end of his career.
Several weeks ago, Norton
returned from Los Angeles
with the production com-
pany contract in hand.
Though Norton's leanings
are toward business and
Scott prefers the creative
side of music, the two work-
ed together on the final
recording sessions of the
demonstration tape. Norton
is an unabashed Scott Stern
fan, tapping his toes with
the faster-paced songs and
pronouncing Scott's "When I
Was Three" ballad "a great,
great song."
But he knows well that a
father's sentiments — or
even talent — do not sell a
record.
"It doesn't matter how
good the tape is if you don't
know how to get from point
A to point B," Norton says.
"There are 100 good singers
in every city. To make it, you
have to know how to be a
salesman."
And even then a singer's
success is precarious, he
adds. "Nobody knows
whether a record will sell —
not the record companies,
not the producers."
Though the two men are
optimistic Scott can find
success as a singer, being a
rock-and-roll legend is not at
the top of Scott's agenda. His
real dream, he says, is
becoming a respected com-
poser.
Scott approaches compos-
ing the way a writer ap-
proaches a book, he says. As
he writes, he can clearly
imagine the sound each in-
strument will make. "Just
like a character in a book
has specific qualities, I know
the violin," he says. "I know
what it can do; I know its
range and speed. It's almost
like another language, and I
know the language of
music."
Lyrics are more difficult.
"I always write the music
first — sometimes it just
takes 10 minutes; then the
words will take me months.
A fan of Brahms and
Mahler, Theolonius Monk
and Peter Gabriel, Scott
dreams one day of having his
own studio.
"But at the same time I'm
realistic," he says. "If all
this doesn't work out, I'll
find something else to do for
a living. But music will
always be my first pas-
sion." ❑
