Still Working Music has signed musician, director and film star Dominic Scott Kay to a comprehensive, multi-faceted deal for recording, songwriting and music management.

Kay was five when he started writing songs and performing on stage, and he landed his first film role not long after, playing the son of Tom Cruise’s character in Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report. He also portrayed Henry Turner in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, and provided the voice of Wilbur in Charlotte’s Web opposite Julia Roberts, Oprah, and Reba. Kay directed his first film, Saving Angelo, at age 9, which starred Kevin Bacon. Now 21, he still holds the record as the highest working film actor under 18, having racked up nearly 50 credits to his name by his eighteenth birthday.

The Malibu native spent the last four years in Nashville learning the ins and outs of recording and production while honing his craft and his sound. He is based in Bel Air, California, but spends a good deal of his time on the road performing.

He joined the FGL band and also toured with Ryan Hurd before being named band leader for Kane Brown. Deeghan recently left the road to focus full-time on songwriting.

Deeghan explained that performing in some of the biggest arenas in the country has had an impact on his songwriting. “It gives me an inside look at how a crowd reacts to a song and how certain topics hit people harder than others,” he said.
