Scott sang many traditional songs. He started singing in the 8th grade, and it became a passion he strived to perfect. He would walk around with a drum stick in his back pocket and would join a group of singers whenever he could. Even if he didn’t know them, he would just sit right down and start to sing with them. He lived in the southern part of the country and traveled the pow-wow trail and won many different drum contests with the group he was with. He would sing all different kinds of tribal songs, honoring songs, and was also an avid flute player. Scott was a traditional and grass dancer. He sang and danced all over the country and was invited to many places to sing traditional songs.
