It’s been a busy year for the Chicago-born, Hollywood writer.

Meet Scott Fivelson: His ‘Secret Entrance to Your Heart’ is a top song for Connect Brazil’s 2020 Showcase.

This year, Connect Brazil’s Best of Brazilian Music Showcase includes the musical work of an award-winning Hollywood screenwriter and director.

Meet Scott Fivelson. His song, ‘Secret Entrance to Your Heart’ – performed with sublime Brazilian flavor by Breeze BossaNova – quickly found a home on AccuRadio when it was released in 2020.

By year’s end, the song has been in frequent rotation on RCP FM 92.6 in Portugal, along with airplay on Clube MegaHertz with its 20-plus international affiliates: a perfect profile for a song from a Latin country you may have forgotten about.

Bucharest, Romania’s Breeze BossaNova was born of two people – the husband-and-wife team of Florin Siia (babybass/producer) and Ioana Siia (vocals) – and one idea: “Bossa Nova is a state, a state that surrounds you and carries you into the most beautiful rooms of the soul.” Ioana’s idyllic delivery has also taken Fivelson’s song into a live performance during a recent concert sponsored by UNESCO.

Meanwhile, the song seems destined to inspire more cover versions. There’s a new instrumental release of ‘Secret Entrance to Your Heart’ by Anthony Proveaux of Bossanaire.

Other songs by Scott Fivelson to discover and enjoy include Dave Corwin’s ‘Goodnight, L.A.,’ Luis Martelo & Martin Selwood’s ‘Uber Time,’ and French singer Caroline Mour’s ‘If Bird Had Wings (She Could Fly).’

When he’s not composing songs and authoring stageplays – his one-act Dial L for Latch-Key has been produced in London, Belfast, San Francisco – Fivelson is busy writing and producing films.

Fivelson was the co-writer and producer of the music-biz comedy/drama, American Reel, starring the legendary David Carradine (Tarantino’s Kill Bill), British actor Michael Maloney (Kenneth Branagh’s Henry V and The Crown), and Mariel Hemingway (Personal Best).

Fivelson’s latest film, Near Myth: The Oskar Knight Story, is an award-winning Hollywood comedy biopic starring Lenny Von Dohlen (Twin Peaks) as iconic director “Oskar Knight,” in a light-hearted and nostalgic retelling of cinema history.

The movie features such notable actors as Academy Award Winner Margaret O’Brien, International Emmy Winner Sir David Suchet, Joaquim de Almeida, Julianna Guill, and more – playing themselves.

“Did Oskar Knight ever win an Oscar?” asks Fivelson. “You’ll have to see the film to find out.”

To paraphrase Casablanca, film and music can be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
