ABOUT "ACT OF SURRENDER"
With this EP, Scott Riggan runs the gamut from heartfelt worship to an innovative Beatles cover ("Eleanor Rigby" like you've never heard it before - in a good way). The moving ballad "Mrs. Taylor" tells a soldier's story from the perspective of the family he leaves behind.
Scott's "Act of Surrender (I Will Bow)" is already being sung in churches and his unique take on "Halleluiah, What A Savior" is unlike any reimagined hymn you've ever heard (featuring a percussion track that includes a soccer ball, bike tire pump, cardboard box, a pencil striking a guitar string, etc.).
