Meet Scott

Born and raised in Madrid Spain, Lucas Scott Lawrence grew up in a family of missionaries, artists and musicians. This allowed Scott to experience the impact of the arts on a global level. For Scott, the arts “create and transform culture, with the ability to transcend all that divides us. What better way to bring people together?”

This passion for the arts led Scott to obtain a B.M. in Vocal Performance and to later pursue a M.M. in Vocal Performance. Scott has served as an adjunct instructor at Alabama School of the Arts since 2016.

Although his training and experience spans multiple styles, from opera, crossover, and pop, to even competing internationally in barbershop, his classical foundation always reestablishes itself as his first musical love. As an avid student of vocal literature, Scott admits that he enjoys “researching and performing many unconventional pieces that many would likely consider to be on the outskirts of mainstream vocal literature, while also maintaining a deep respect and devotion to many of the foundational composers.” Memorable stage credits include: Balthazar in Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors, Simone in Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi, Don Basilio in Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Don Bartolo in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, The Secret Policeman in Menotti’s The Consul, the title role in Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado, Jud Fry in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!, and Grantaire in Les Miserables.

“The opportunity to be part of something like Veritas is a dream come true. To know you are able to use your passions as well as your past experiences to create something that is so much larger than yourself is absolutely priceless.” The magic of a Veritas concert is truly a result of five unique vocals, backgrounds, and personalities coming together and producing an experience of emotional authenticity and grandeur. This is what keeps Scott motivated to collaborate with his fellow vocalists.

When not traveling with Veritas, you’ll most likely find Scott preparing a cup of coffee at his in-home science lab coffee bar for he and his wife Ellie, who is also an accomplished violinist and vocalist. “There’s no way I would be able to travel the way I do without the support of my wife. She is the one who keeps me grounded and focused and also gives me the best reason to look forward to coming home!” In 2017, Scott and Ellie welcomed their first daughter, Ivey Brooks, into their lives. As adoptive parents, they share a passion for advocating on behalf of orphans and birth families to raise awareness of the world-changing possibilities found in adoption.

Scott is equally as passionate about the visual arts as he is about music and has worked professionally as a visual artist for more than a decade. When not singing, painting, designing, discussing philosophy of the arts, or pursuing the perfect cup of coffee, he is most likely diving into the deep black hole that is Wikipedia.
