"WAIT-WHAT??…was the standard response when friends and family heard that Scott was in ‘Grease’… Most people thought he was in Greece.
As this year marks 30 years since Scott’s first professional musical, he has taken a moment to reflect on how the hell any of this happened. Surely, he should’ve stayed in his marketing job… Scott will explore the music and stories that led to the most unexpected career
as an actor/singer/*cough dancer.
Accompanying him is New York based Aussie guitarist Ben Butler, who most recently toured the world with Sting. Yep. Ben is probably wondering how this happened too…
