Born in Essex, Scott Lavene was raised on power ballads, punk and swearing. In bands since his teens, Scott travelled about, scratching out a living with deadbeat jobs trying to find something to cling to.
After a couple of years in France and a brief stint in New York, including playing at the infamous CBGB’s Scott returned to London and came close to a major label deal with his sordid songs.
Instead Scott disappeared on a rusty old boat, a floating shed, for five years. Hiding from the world. Broke and bemused. Solitude and lonely debauchery.
After five years of this Scott went kaput, so spent some time in a house for the bewildered where he emerged full of life and songs.
A self released album in a band called Big Top Heartbreak led to being signed to Funnel Music as a solo artist.
The first single, ‘It’s All Gonna Blow’ has been played by Steve Lamacq on his BBC 6Music show and Scott had a residency at the Brighton Fringe as well as a sell out show at Crofters Rights in Bristol for the 7inch vinyl release show.
A string of 7inch records will be released tis summer with an autumn tour planned to pave the way for the debut album to come early in 2019.
