About

Scott FaganScott Fagan is the singer from St. Thomas, Virgin Islands who single handedly invented the “Contemporary Caribbean” Musical Genre..Scott’s first albums “South Atlantic Blues” (ATCO 1968) (immortalized by Jasper Johns as “Scott Fagan Record”) and Many Sunny Places (RCA 1976) created the “Contemporary Caribbean” or “Caribilly” genre so widely popularized by Jimmy Buffet, Kenny Chesney and others. (See Nothin’ But Love, Carnival’s Ended and South Atlantic Blues, Many Sunny Places, Archipelago Man, Cherrigo Sad, La Beiga Carosuel/Tutsie)

In August 1964 Scott stepped off a 50-foot sailboat just south of Coconut Grove, FL. By September, (on his first day in New York City), Scott was heard and signed by the legendary Doc Pomus (Save The Last Dance For Me, Teenager In Love, Viva Las Vegas) and in October he was signed to Columbia Records.
By way of warning, Doc said “Scott, it’s gonna be rough, you sing too good!”
Here’s what some others had to say:

  • Cashbox Magazine: Spinal Tap melodies…His range is phenomenal
  • Billboard: “A Poet”
  • William Krasilovsky, Author, THIS BUSINESS OF MUSIC, l & ll: “Scott Fagan is a genius. I’ll certify that.”

In 1971, Scott wrote SOON, the first Rock Opera to be premiered on Broadway. The cast included…Scott, Peter Allen, Vicki Sue Robinson, Richard Gere, Nell Carter, Leata Galloway, Pamela Pentony, Pendelton Brown, Dennis Belline, Joe Butler, Marta Heflin, and Marion Ramsey.

“SOON was our attempt to “bring to light” the absurdity and cruelty of the music business, and its destructive effects on artists and society”.

  • Here’s what Martin Brookspan had to say: “The tide of Rock musicals reaches it’s high water mark in SOON… an inventive, imaginative, brilliantly realized creation.”
  • Emory Lewis said: “SOON is a hallelujah blessing, glorious music easily the best score of the season… I loved every rocking minute.”
  • And John Schubeck: “Staggering shots of meaning. Dynamite in so many ways.”

The music business was not amused and Scott was “banned in the biz”. He is one of very few artists to have taken a public stand against the exploitative, destructive and all but omnipotent music industry…A daring act for which he has paid dearly.
