True to his singer- songwriter genre, Scott Day-Vee creates a unique live musical experience as he demonstrates his well-honed vocal capabilities with a collection of strong originals and well-crafted covers. Scott is a well-known Byron Bay act and plays predominately and frequently between Newcastle and Brisbane. The song list swings between nostalgia and the modern, as Jazz and Blues standards meet a collection of the 70’s to the now, performed in a folky, coastal-roots style.
