About Backyard Music Co.

At Backyard Music Co., we’re passionate about one thing: bringing the magic of live music closer to your heart, quite literally. Founded by Scotty James, a Billboard-charting and award-winning artist, and his partner Andrea Watson. Backyard Music Co. was born out of a deep love for the intimate musical experiences found in Nashville, a city where songwriters take the stage to share their original compositions with appreciative audiences. We’re giving songwriters around the world a platform to perform their own original music, and neighbourhood communities the chance to discover them.

Our Founder's Journey

Scotty James, our visionary founder, has experienced the enchantment of Nashville’s legendary music venues firsthand. Living and performing in this vibrant city, he discovered the power of songs sung from the heart to connect deeply with audiences. This realization led to the creation of Backyard Music Co.

During the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, with lockdowns and concert cancellations disrupting the music industry, Scotty turned to his own backyard. He began performing impromptu concerts for his neighbors and friends, channeling the spirit of Nashville’s intimate songwriters’ showcases into his own community. The response was nothing short of magical. These backyard gatherings, filled with the soulful sounds of original compositions, became the inspiration behind Backyard Music Co.

What started as a simple idea has now grown into a remarkable movement. Backyard Music Co. strives to capture the essence of Nashville’s intimate songwriter experiences and bring them to backyards across the United States and Canada, supporting songwriters and making memories through music that last a lifetime.
