Scout Durwood Releases Second Digital Video Series/EP
Comedy Electronica Vol. 1
(Los Angeles, CA) – September 29, 2020 – Blue Élan Recording artist, SCOUT DURWOOD, releases Comedy Electronica Vol. 1, her second digital video series with accompanying EP. The five song set is available today on all Streaming Services and videos are available HERE
For Comedy Electronica Vol. 1, Durwood once again collaborated with the Grammy-Nominated producer, Dave Darling (Def Leppard, Queen Latifah, Tom Waits, Brian Setzer). “We took inspiration for Comedy Electronica from all facets of the pop world. I wanted every song to have its own unique vibe, but also for the album to be cohesive as a whole, and honestly, I really feel like we nailed it. Every track has its own personality, which is even more apparent in the videos,” explains Durwood. “Comedy gains so much when it gets to be experienced visually, which is why every song has a video, and each of the videos have totally independent concepts.”
A seasoned cabaret singer, SCOUT released her debut studio album, Take One Thing Off, with Blue Élan Records in 2017. Based on the original music, Take One Thing Off developed into a twenty-two episode digital series combining music videos and narrative sketches, recounting the story of Scout’s life as the existential odyssey that it is. The series was nominated for a Streamy Award for “Best Indie Series,” within the Indie Series Category at the 9th annual Streamy Awards this past December and was a Slamdance 2020 Official Selection. The series has now amassed nearly 200,000 views on YouTube.
Prior to the current pandemic Safer at Home situation, SCOUT hosted a monthly ‘Everybody GoGo’ neo-cabaret variety show/dance party. Each event featured some of the biggest names in musical and alt-comedy, variety, drag, magic, and burlesque, taking place on the second Tuesday of every month at The Virgil LA.
SCOUT is a Los Angeles-based comedian. She starred in MTV’s scripted comedy series Mary + Jane as well as Oxygen’s Funny Girls, a docu-series following the lives of six female stand-up comedians. She has also guested on Jonathan Van Ness’ hit Funny or Die comedy series Gay of Thrones.
