When it comes to ‘being human’, 20 year old Toronto Canada native, Scott Helman isn’t at all uncomfortable. One of the most obvious observations I have witnessed is Scott’s ability to be present with his fans. Engaging on social media, taking the time to take pictures and chat at the merch table after his shows and generally caring about the people that are supporting his journey, very HUMAN behaviour. This is something Scott feels is an important part of who he is as an artist.
You don’t really know that you’ve sold 50,000 records until you play a show and people are singing your song back, and they come up to you and say, ‘This song really helped me through this rough time,'” says Helman. “I think that’s what’s important.”
In his new song, “Machine” Scott takes a look at humanity from the point of view of a human and an android. Set in an abandon power plant near Niagara Falls Ontario – the creepy industrial setting creates the perfect back drop for Scotts post apocalyptic tale of love and life. It’s about Humanity, what it means to be human.
Machine, from the debut EP ‘Augusta’ availible now.
