About Me

"Put nothing before God, then prioritize after that."

 Scott Thomas Savol (Artist-Songwriter-Producer)


He never went looking for fame. He simply wanted to do what he loved the most, to sing and perform for others. He started his passion for music at an early age while singing under the kitchen table at the age of five. He also joined his high school choir and learned how to play the trumpet, piano and guitar.

From Shaker Heights OH, Scott Savol became a household name after he took a leap of faith when the show increased the maximum age to 28. The three judges, Simon, Randy, Paula and guest judge, LL Cool J were captivated by his empowering rendition of "Superstar" during his AI audition in the summer of 2004. He received his big break on the most popular talent show in the country, American Idol Season 4 in 2005 and placed fifth. His smooth and soulful gospel and R&B flavor captured millions of fans throughout the US covering songs like "You Are My Lady" , "Never Too Much" , "I Can't Help Myself" , Ain't Too Proud To Beg" , Against All Odds" , "One Last Cry" , "The Impossible Dream" , "She's Gone" , "Everlasting Love" , "Dance with my Father" , "On Broadway" and "Everytime You Go Away".

Scott Savol is the uncommon star that has endeared himself to Idol fans by being down-to-earth, soft spoken, humble and deeply spiritual. Fans seem to gravitate toward this everyday guy and his lack of showbiz polish seems to be part of his appeal. His faithful fan group known as the Dawgpound supported him throughout his Idol journey and beyond. Being in the limelight also has its disadvantages but Scott was able to take it all in as part of the game. "I just expect that whatever God has in store for me is what's going to happen & I take my advice that Paula gave to me on a necklace. It says to embrace your imperfections 'cause none of us will ever be perfect. We all learn everyday. Perfection will never come. But we can all hope to do our best at what we do & I don't look at this as a downfall in my career. Whatever happens it's just another step." Scott said.


Scott and his fellow top 12 idols released "The Showstoppers" which features his single "Against All Odds (Take a Look At Me Now)" and has been certified Gold, through RCA Records and the single "When You Tell Me That You Love Me" through Arista Records for the American Red Cross Relief for the Indonesian tsunami victims in 2005. His EP album "Only Human" was released in 2007 through Talan/Browne Management and also collaborated with Mahoning Valley Records and released another album "In Spite of All" in 2011.


He has a son, named Brandon and is currently based in Cleveland, Ohio while he continues to write and produce his music.
