Jocelyn Scofield is an independent singer/songwriter, whose music has been compared to artists Joni Mitchell and Carol King, as well as contemporary artists Regina Spektor, Sara Bareilles, and Fiona Apple. She has garnered over 30 millions plays of her music on Spotify and Youtube. She was one of ten musicians chosen out of 17,000, by hit producer and Grammy Award winner, John Shanks, to participate in the first Guitar Center Whooznxt Competition. Most recently, her rendition of “Be My Baby” was featured on the hit Fox TV show, So You Think You Can Dance.
Scofield has independently recorded and released three original albums and dozens of cover albums. Her first album, “This Life,” was recorded in Long Beach in a smokey garage on a dat recorder. It received rave reviews (surprisingly enough) from several magazines including Indie-Music Magazine. They called her a “true composer … with a voice like a gutsier Fiona Apple.” CollectedSounds.com wrote: “It’s an excellent showcase for her strong vocals and piano playing. Vocally she has the same force as Jewel once had, and some of Fiona Apple’s jazz inflections.” Her 2nd album, “Unplugged & Unorganized” is a piano/vocal acoustic album. Although it is by far her simplest album, it includes some of her most popular downloads, ‘Much bigger than this,’ and a cover of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah.’
Scofield released her third album, “A Witty Girl,” which was produced by Grammy Award winning producer Mitch Dane. This album was funded primarily through fan sponsorship. This is her most popular albums including the single, Gravity Takes the Lead.
In 2012, Scofield began producing her own music, including Falls So Slowly, The Humbugs, There is Hope, Might Be Crazy, and Help Me Breathe. Her latest self-produced release, Forever (My Love), introduces a more cinematic and orchestral production style. Forever (My Love) is available on all download and streaming sites.
As a songwriter, Jocelyn has co-written songs with Grammy Award winners and hit country songwriters. She was selected for the Johnny Mercer ‘Power of a Song’ workshop in Chicago with David Zippel and the ASCAP Pop Songwriter’s workshop in Nashville with Darrell Brown. Scofield was one of fourteen songwriters around the country to be selected to attend the Lester Sill Songwriter’s Workshop in Los Angeles with Greg Wells. She has composed songs for videos and stage shows including, “The Oreo Experience.”
As a singer, Jocelyn is actively involved in the Los Angeles singing community. She is a member of SAG/Aftra. She has sung on Fox’s White Hot Holidays Special, the People’s Choice Awards, the score of Suicide Squad, the score of Wonder Park and Herb Alpert’s Christmas album. She has performed with wil.i.am, John Legend, Patti LaBelle, and Mary J. Blige, Echo Society, Women Who Score, and Sunnyland’s DesertX.
