Scott Coulter is one of New York’s most honored vocalists. For his work in cabaret, he has received five MAC Awards (Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs), five Bistro Awards and two Nightlife Awards for Outstanding Vocalist and has performed at most of NYC’s top rooms including Birdland, 54 Below, The Oak Room at the Algonquin, and Feinstein’s at The Regency where he spent a record-setting eight months performing the revue 11 O’CLOCK NUMBERS AT 11 O’CLOCK which he also co-created, directed and musically arranged. His self-titled debut CD won the 2003 MAC Award for Outstanding Recording and was chosen as the best recording of the year by TheatreMania and Cabaret Scenes magazines. Scott was director and star of A CHRISTMAS CAROL: THE SYMPHONIC CONCERT in its world premiere with the Baltimore Symphony and reprised his performance in the Emmy-nominated PBS production which premiered in December 2013. He was an Emmy nominee himself for his performance in American Song at NJPAC. Scott regularly performs in concert both as a solo artist and with a variety of legendary performers including Stephen Schwartz, Tony-winner Ben Vereen and Grammy-winner Sheena Easton and has performed with symphonies all over the world including San Francisco, Baltimore, Seattle, Phoenix, Detroit, Winnipeg, St. Louis and Calgary.
Since 1997, Scott has performed with award-winning songwriting duo Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich in their many award-winning revues. While singing with Goldrich and Heisler he was discovered by Oscar and Grammy winning composer Stephen Schwartz who then invited him to join the revue STEPHEN SCHWARTZ & FRIENDS. That revue (starring Schwartz and Coulter along with Liz Callaway and Tony Award-winner Debbie Gravitte) has been performing all over the world since 1999. Schwartz has said, “One of the greatest things that can happen to a composer is to have his music interpreted by Scott Coulter.”
Scott is creator, arranger and director of several touring shows (symphonic and non-) including MUSIC OF THE KNIGHTS, THE WONDERFUL MUSIC OF OZ, JERSEY BOYS & GIRLS, BETTE BABS & BEYOND, BLOCKBUSTER BROADWAY!, and, for The ASCAP Foundation, JERRY HERMAN: THE BROADWAY LEGACY CONCERT which celebrates the legendary composer’s songbook. As a director his credits include many shows for The Town Hall in NYC and BROADWAY BY THE WAY for The Berkshire Theatre Festival and Broadway by the Bay. Along with Michael Kerker and ASCAP, he’s a regular producer/director of Michael Feinstein’s STANDARD TIME at Carnegie Hall. Scott wrote the book for the new musical GOT TO BE THERE which celebrates the life and music of songwriter Elliot Willensky. He most recently created the hit musical revue ROAR! THE MUSICAL which celebrates the Roaring 2020s.

He is the artistic director of the Pocono Mountains Music Festival and a proud graduate of the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.
