My name is Scott Wilcox, I am a singer/songwriter from Wisconsin. I have been writing music for over 30 years. I play 3 instruments, (piano, drums and guitar) and I have written over 150 songs. Personally, I have produced two full CDs and I am finishing up my 3rd to be released on Thankgiving. I own my own recording studio called Bear Creek Recording in which I produce music for artists as well as create radio ads and jingles for companies on a national, regional, and local scale. I have produced hundreds of radio ads and jingles over the years for many clients all over the U.S. My specialty is songwriting. I have co-written with many artist in various genre. I excel in creating music from notes or ideas. I have co-written work online with musicians from all over the world. I work well with lyricists and have a good ear for what makes a song a hit song. I recently performed one of my original songs live on the Oprah Lifeclass program and Oprah said that my music was, "fantastic" and "a gift". See my website at www.bearcreekrecording.com

Along with my 30 years of Musical composition experience I also have 17 years of broadcast and agency marketing and advertising experience. Currently I specialize in radio and jingle production in my Bear Creek Recording Studio but I have produced ads in all forms of media for over 17 years. I am comfortable in creating marketiing plans and assessing company brands. I have many years of analytical marketing experience and have worked with surveys, scientific studies and focus groups.
