A dark, soulful and eclectic performance of jazz standards and original music.
Inspired by the flickers of magic hidden in everyday life, Holli Scott & the Rush Hour Circus spin the dark, the soulful, and the magically eclectic into a captivating performance of original music and arranged jazz standards.
The music finds its roots firmly in the jazz genre, drawing inspiration from a wide range of artists – from Nina Simone and Billie Holiday to Nick Cave and Tom Waits.
Scott has honed a uniquely melancholic, rich sound, with lyrics that reflect real sparks of relatable emotion experienced in everyday life, with a focus on storytelling.
Together with some of Australia’s finest musicians, Scott’s rich vocals and emotive delivery bring a captivating presence to the stage.
