JOURNEY TO HIS GREATEST HITS
KATSURA grew up in Hawaii on the island of Oahu before he
relocated to New Jersey and became housemates with Evelyn
Champagne King - the legendary r&b soul singer. Eventually,
Scott decided it was in his best interest to live directly
in the pulse of the music business, so he moved into Manhattan
and continued to pursue his lifelong dream of working in the
Living in the heartbeat of the Empire State, Scott found many
golden opportunities of improving his skills as a pop vocalist,
songwriter and music industry colleague. His first venture
was networking his way into Prime Cuts Studio in Times Square,
and collaborating with Mark Kamins, the veteran record producer
that is most known for discovering Madonna. It was Mark that
first placed Scott onto the 'music industry' map by producing
his first pop/dance CD album titled, "Eruption".
Tracks like "Penetration" received great praise
from prominent music critics like Larry Flick of Billboard
Magazine who wrote, "Katsura has a fine voice and writes
great pop tunes."
"Supernatural" followed - his second CD with an
adult contemporary/pop flavor. The album was produced by Grammy
recipient Cynthia Daniels, and Tony "Thunder" Smith,
whose notoriety most derives from being the core drummer for
Lou Reed. The title-track "Supernatural" scored
Scott a #1 single in the U.K for four consecutive weeks.
Latin-freestyle legend and producer Mickey Garcia of MicMac
and 21st Century Records, and club dance producer/DJ Giuseppe
D. of Hothead Productions used their funky beats to produce
Scott’s club - dance - pop CD, “Family Jewel”,
his third worldwide CD release. Scott made his mark with many
club-goers as they pounded on dance floors with hit tracks
like “Love & Sex”, “Single Tonight”,
“Partygirl” and “Best Day Of My Life”.
On his fourth album, Scott took a shot at producing himself
for the very first time. He was committed to and diligent
about implementing his Hawaiian island roots into his professional
work. Scott collaborated selectively with people who shared
the same passion for "Aloha Miles Away", musical
theatre singer/composer David Velarde and Grammy nominated
jazz pianist/composer Martin Bejerano. "Aloha Miles Away"
is the winner of 'Pop Album of the Year' at the 2005 Hawaii
Scott's CD, "Born This Way", was his fifth international
recording. Showing the ability to produce a successful album
on "Aloha Miles Away", once again, Scott had chosen
to produce this adult contemporary - pop - dance - rock CD
in collaboration with his musical partner, Martin Bejerano.
Together, they created a lyrically 'humanistic' anthem CD
that is musically crossing many borders. There was also some
controversy about the CD's title when Lady GaGa had announced
publicly that "Born This Way" would be the title
of her forthcoming CD in 2011.
Currently, Scott has released his highly anticipated "Greatest
Hits - Volume One" CD with great merit. The album contains
15 tracks taken from his "Eruption" "Supernatural"
"Family Jewel" "Aloha Miles Away" "Born
This Way" and his most recent "Heavenly Reign"

Hello Airtime Recording,
What distinguishes Scott Katsura from many others who sing music
from the USA is his sense of engagement. Instead of treating traditional
songs as artifacts, he breathes new life into the music with caressing
vocals and original lyrics and melodies. In all of his songs,
you can feel the love Scott has to offer this world, for all humanity
and cultures around the globe. Scott's engaging, mesmeric voice
is a joy, and his ensemble knows how to add just the right flavor
on every track. I've got every one of Scott's CD's, but hearing
his Greatest Hits - Volume One compilation is like discovering
Scott all over again!
With Love & Respect,

album is radio pop friendly, but still manages to speak with heart
and soul and universal depth for listeners of all types and ages."
