Exhausted Fantasies

Release date - 26/6/20

2020 sees UK artist Kev Scott return with a fourth studio album, this time joined by recording band The Cherished Times. The band was formed by Kev to give recognition to the regular number of musicians and singers, he feels make his music step up another level. Long term collaborators Chris Holland (bass, string arrangements and production), Steve Pellatt (drums) along with Scott (vocals, guitars and piano) form the backbone of the band.

‘Exhausted Fantasies’ is a swirling, mesmerising blend of Kev Scott’s soulful, heart wrenching yet uplifting lyrics and melodies set to a powerful driving alternative folk rock sound, infused with blues and gospel.

The album draws its influence from various underlaying American bands following Americana vibes aswell as major artists such as Neil Young, The Verve, Spiritualized, Paul Simon, The Beach Boys, and The Beatles.
