Alberta Pride Artist: Marlee Scott
From St. Albert, Alberta.
In 2004, Marlee Scott was the winner of Corus Entertainment’s Rising Country Superstar Challenge, which led to a record deal with 306 Records and the release of her first album.
Marlee’s first album, Souvenir, was released in Canada in 2005. It introduced the young singer to the Country music masses, but more importantly, it generated enough buzz to showcase her songs at various festivals and fairs around the country, garnering invaluable performance experience for the rising artist.
Her second album earned Marlee a coveted nomination in the Rising Star Award category at the 2010 Canadian Country Music Awards, as well as a 2010 nomination at the Canadian Radio Music Awards. Not one to stand idly by, Marlee capitalized on the momentum of her critically-acclaimed sophomore effort and quickly released the international hit, “Here To Heaven.” The track went Top 20 in Australia and Canada and shot to the top of the charts in Europe.
Her third Album, Beautiful Maybe (2012), was a big hit with Canadian Radio and fans alike.
“It’s the storytelling and honesty of Country music that I was always drawn to, I hope people hear and identify with that on this album. Lyrically, these songs represent who I am more accurately than anything I’ve ever written before.” – Marlee Scott
