Scott Wesley Brown never fit the typical rock star image, or even pop star image. He looks like a regular guy, nothing flashy. Yet, Scott was among one of the earliest waves of artists in what was called the Jesus Movement of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s.
His first album, “Scott Wesley Brown,” was released in 1973. His second, “I Am A Christian,” came out in 1976. What would become his breakout project was released in 1977, “I’m Not Religious, I Just Love The Lord.” A young Steve Camp played guitar and provided backup vocals on that project. A year later Camp would release his own debut solo album.
The title track from Scott’s 1977 album was a minor hit on Christian radio, along with “House At Pooh Corner.” “I Wish You Jesus” was his first big hit, staying on Christian radio charts long enough to become the #17 song for 1978. In 1978 he released a live album, “Songs And Stories.” The 1979 album, “One Step Closer,” featured “This Is The Day (A Wedding Song).”
In all he has released 25 albums and had 9 number one songs on Christian radio. Scott has toured all 50 states and 50 countries. He has headed up a drive to provide musical instruments to artists in Third World nations and train them. He is and ordained minister and is active in planting churches in the Southern California area.
Here’s “This Is The Day (A Wedding Song)” From “One Step Closer.”
