Scott was the frontman of a successful 60's pop trio called The Walker Brothers. At around 1967, he went solo with the release of Scott. It was well received, and it resulted in three more albums of a similar style, until he kinda disappeared on and off, only to reemerge in the 80's as an avant garde composer. He's revered by the likes of David Bowie, Brian Eno, and Nick Cave. It's well worth reading about him, and getting to know his career.
