Scott Michael Bennett is an international Christian recording artist known for his passionate music expression and deeply moving concerts. His talent was discovered when he was a teenager at which point he began to focus his gift under the guidance of two accomplished vocal coaches, Dr. Jeannie Pedersen-Smith and Dr. Stephen Zork of Andrews University.
In 2001 Scott was the winner of the National Young Artists’ Competition in the Vocal Performance category singing two Shakespearean songs with a full orchestral accompaniment in front of over 2000 attendees.
In 2006 Scott auditioned for and was accepted into the Grammy Award winning Phoenix Symphony Chorus and Arizona State University’s Men’s Chorus where he was awarded a scholarship for his musical and scholastic performance.
During Scott’s vocal performance studies, he was given opportunities to sing for and be critiqued by famed soloists of the New York Metropolitan Opera who enthusiastically encouraged to Scott to pursue singing as a career soloist emphasizing using his talent towards Broadway productions. Scott did perform in small productions including “The Secret Garden” and the debut production of “Carnival in Venice” which toured and performed at several locations throughout the United States and of which Scott was awarded the lead role of the “Father” in the musical.
Though these productions were entertaining, Scott knew in his heart that he had a deeper calling and was given an opportunity to quit his 7 year career in Computer IT Networking and take the faith-step into full-time music ministry in 2008. In 2009 Scott married his best friend and love of his life Heather Kincaid and together in faith they launched their career music ministry under the name of “Fresh Day Music” with the hopes that everyone will realize that every day in Christ can be a “Fresh New Day”.
Because of the scope of their tour schedule giving nearly 150 events a year, Scott and Heather and their two daughters live aboard a professional tour bus that they renovated themselves. Scott has recorded and released five albums, three of which have been recorded and produced at Gaither Studios in Alexandria, Indiana.
His music has traveled the country and even taken him to Hawaii, and the Cayman Islands, and the United States Pentagon. Scott is featured on Three Angels Broadcasting Network (3ABN) Hope Channel (HopeTV), SafeTV, Olelo Studios (Hawaiian Channel), and Amazing Facts. Scott has also been singing for international telecast It Is Written for many years and in 2017 officially joined forces with this amazing ministry as It Is Written’s affiliate musician. This partnership has opened doors for Scott to sing for large scale evangelistic efforts and convocations across the country and each year Scott joins the It Is Written team for their annual Partnership Tour which spans 13,000 miles across the United States over the course of a few months.
Scott’s concerts are simply more than music. He sings, he expresses, and he tells amazing personal life stories that will leave us progressing from tears to laughter to inspiration as we go on a musical journey unlike anything we have experienced before.
Scott & Heather are currently booking concerts and would love to share their journey at your church or event.
