Pippa Scott | What If: Exclusive Premiere

The B.C. singer-songwriter shares a tale of unrequited love in her debut single.


Pippa Scott advises you to change your mind before she changes hers in the yearning ballad What If — premiering exclusively on Tinnitist.

Produced by her creative partner Chersea, the ascendant B.C. singer-songwriter’s romantically haunted debut single ultimately embraces self-prioritization and surrendering control. “The single is one that I think many can relate to,” Scott says. “The heartbreaking reality of loving someone who for various reasons isn’t able to show up for you the way you desire.

“The first part of the single is the mistake many of us make where we turn ourselves into pretzels trying to have the love fully realized only to be disappointed repeatedly. By the end of the song there is hope and a shift to a realization that the power instead lies within and in choosing to prioritize and love ourselves. The art of surrender — letting go of control — which is just an illusion anyway.”

Scott’s talent is no illusion, however. As What If makes crystal clear, she is a captivating singer-songwriter who effortlessly blends genres to create an immersive musical experience. Her unique sound fuses pop, R&B, and soul, drawing inspiration from her personal journey and mental-health battles. Her profound lyrics explore self-discovery, empowerment and self-love.

Raised in Vancouver and Yorkshire, and recognized at 16 on the BBC show A Star For A Night, Pippa pursued her passion, studying at The University of Manchester and training at Broadway’s Circle in the Square Theatre School. She also honed her classical singing skills with esteemed opera singer Leah Field in Vancouver, and is now refining her abilities with renowned Chelsea Laing.

As her career evolves, Scott’s partnership with Chersea remains integral to her creative journey, crafting music that resonates deeply with listeners. With unwavering passion, undeniable talent, and heartfelt lyrics, Pippa leaves a lasting impact on the music industry and her fans. Their collaboration seamlessly blends Pippa’s soulful vocals with Chersea’s innovative production, resulting in captivating music.
