Scott celebrates new CD

Triple threat Aurora Scott may be many things, but superstitious is not one of them.

Vocalist Aurora Scott celebrates the debut of her CD Dance With You at Hermann’s Jazz Club tonight at 8 p.m.

Triple threat Aurora Scott may be many things, but superstitious is not one of them.

Going against centuries of tradition, the Nova Scotia born and Victoria bred vocalist has chosen today, Friday, Jan.13, at 8 p.m. at Hermann’s Jazz Club to celebrate the release of her CD Dance With You.

It is fitting that the charismatic singer would choose a traditionally unlucky day to celebrate the culmination of a lifetime of hard work – so far, luck has just not been part of the equation.

As a teen Scott honed her skills in musical theatre, starring in productions across Canada and as far away as Thailand, but after nearly a decade on stage she made the difficult decision to focus on being a singer exclusively.

After graduating from the Jazz Studies program at the Victoria Conservatory of Music  she gathered some of Victoria’s finest musicians and began recording her debut CD.

On Dance With You Scott slinks from jazz to soulful R&B with ease, belying her relatively young age. Like the Northern Lights after which she was named, Scott’s voice has a luminous quality that seems to hang in the air long after it has disappeared.

For her Friday the 13th show, Scott will be joined by some of Victoria’s finest jazz musicians: Thomas Kinzel, piano; Ryan Tandy, bass; and Damian Graham, drums.

Join Scott and some of Victoria’s best musicians at Hermann’s Jazz Club, 753 View St. Tickets $17 at the door, $15 for VJS members.
