Scott & Ryceejo
Orem, Utah-based music duo Scott & Ryceejo consists of husband Scott David Shattuck and wife Ryceejo Nordström Shattuck. Their main focus is producing professional-quality contemporary a cappella covers, but they occasionally produce original songs and acoustic covers as well. They made their YouTube debut in December of 2015 with a cover of Pentatonix’s “The First Noel” for a cover competition and effectively declared their YouTube presence by tying for first out of hundreds of entries. In the summer of 2016, they released their first full-length a cappella CD, “La La Love”, and since then they’ve been going strong recording a cappella covers and acoustic sessions as well as making music videos for their growing YouTube channel. Scott & Ryceejo can also be found on Spotify and SoundCloud and you can support their video projects via their Patreon page.
Scott is an award-winning performer, arranger, and music producer from Alpine, Utah. With a Bachelor’s degree from BYU in Music Production and having wet his whistle for a cappella music while being a part of BYU’s world-renowned a cappella group Vocal Point, Scott decided to focus on a cappella production, and he currently produces for groups across the nation as well as teaching private production lessons, in addition to producing all of the music for Scott & Ryceejo. Scott served an LDS mission in Campinas, Brazil.
Ryceejo is an accomplished singer, pianist, organist, and musical director from Riverside, California. She received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a Music minor from BYU. She is Scott & Ryceejo’s social media manager and helps Scott arrange all of their music. She currently teaches piano and voice lessons while taking care of their daughter, Hosanna Rae. When she isn’t making music she loves going to the beach and eating Thai food. Ryceejo served an LDS mission in Nashville, Tennessee.
The two met while performing together in BYU’s prestigious Concert Choir, an audition-only choir of about 80 singers, just before Ryceejo was about to leave for her LDS mission. They hit it off instantly, even recording a song together, “Quando Quando Quando,” which was used on their wedding EP (a 4-track CD released as their wedding favor). While Ryceejo served, they corresponded via letters and emails. They were sealed in the Newport Beach LDS Temple almost exactly one year after Ryceejo completed her mission.
As musicians, they fully acknowledge that their gifts come from the Lord, and they are incredibly grateful to be able to use those gifts to bring joy to others. Ryceejo says, “We boast family-friendly music that can help people feel the spirit, even though our music isn’t all hymns and religious songs. We want to bring happiness to a world full of hatred, stress, and violence.”
“That’s our ultimate goal,” Scott says. “We were given talents and have cultivated those talents, and it would be negligent of us to keep them from others. We can’t help but sing and write music together, and we feel like we have an obligation to share it, so other people can benefit from it as well”.
