Scottie knew exactly what she wanted to do with her life at a very young age. Most kids have fantasies of becoming a nurse, a fireman, a policeman or maybe even a rockstar. But by the time they’ve reached college age, they still don’t know what they want to do. After visiting the studio one day with her father, legendary string arranger, composer and conductor Jimmie Haskell, the light bulb just went off. She saw her father work as the session singers went about the business of cold-reading their parts and delivering the goods on the spot. Scottie was absolutely amazed and inspired. Then and there, she committed herself to becoming a part of the magic as a session singer.
“I literally remember sitting in the booth watching my father conducting a live recording session. I was absolutely blown away by the expertise of the session singers in particular. I decided in that moment – Wow!! That’s what I want to do!!”
By age seven, Scottie was a working professional and quickly became known to all of the vocal contractors in town. From that day to this, her voice has been heard on a string of albums, commercials, TV shows and film scores too numerous to count.
“Best singer I’ve ever worked with in the studio and on stage!!” – Connie Francis
In addition to all of the studio work, Scottie has toured the world with some of the biggest names in the business. Scottie’s combination of charm, optimism, versatility and sheer talent keep her in demand. She is a veritable vocal chameleon.
Never one to rest on her laurels, Scottie is always exploring new musical opportunities. No wonder the world’s leading recording artists and producers keep Scottie Haskell on their short list of “first-call” singers.
She was simply born to sing.
