The Scorps are a band of energetic young rockers that find inspiration in a variety of musical styles. When listening to them play live you might find them covering artist as diverse as The White Stripes, Lady Gaga or Michael Jackson. Ready to develop their own signature sound and songs, their first attempt at songwriting produced this pop/rock infused hip hop track. Lyrically their debut single "Isn’t Me" was inspired by the challenges youth face growing up and discovering who they really are. This time of self discovery and change has inspired them to express themselves creatively with music as the backbeat.
The band members are students in The Intonation Music Workshop, a Chicago-based non-profit which empowers children to become rock stars on every stage in life through innovative music education. Using donated instruments and a unique pop band curriculum, IMW's after-school music program provides kids age 6-17, who would not otherwise have the opportunity, with access to instruments, instruction and performances in a safe and upbeat environment.
The single is the 3rd in a series of student tracks which will be released later this year on a compilation.
