When the nominees were announced Thursday for the 2018 Guild of Music Supervisors Awards, one local name was among them.  Bridgeport High School Alum Scott Simons, along with TeamMate member Dani Buncher, was nominated in the Best Song or Recording Created for Television category for his work with Stitchers, a television sci-fi crime drama.  Their song, “Until You Find Me,” was among the award nominations in 17 categories of music supervision represented in film, television, trailers, television promotion, video games and advertising.
 
Simons has made his mark in Los Angeles, where he earned national acclaim for his most recent album and his work with celebrities including Ellen DeGeneres, Craig Ferguson, and Anderson Cooper.  He has been recognized for work with the Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards, the X Factor, and America’s Got Talent and even for his behind the scenes work that includes the Emmy-nominated theme song for Paw Patrol. 
 
Throughout his music career, which began helping his dad Mike Simons write jingles at WBOY, Simons has continued to excel with band TeamMate and as a solo artist.  He has toured with One Republic, had a song featured on Riverdale, and has been sampled by Wiz Kahlifa.  His songs have also provided background music for Wimbledon coverage and NBC Sunday Night Football, as well as several commercials.
 
Receiving his recent award nomination was yet another validation of his talent.  The Guild of Music Supervisors was formed in 2010 to recognize and promote the best in the field of music supervision in the media.  This year marks the eighth year that they have held the awards, which will also feature a live performance by Yungblud.  Simons will join the other nominees at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles on February 8, where winners will be announced in each of the 17 categories.
