Aboriginal singer-songwriter Scott Darlow has released heartland rock track 'Runaway', from his 2016 album 'Sorry'.
'Runaway’ is a strikingly beautiful ballad based on a true story about a refugee couple escaping political danger from their home country with only each other for support.
Scott has put together a list of five things you didn't know about Scott Darlow. We love initiative at scenestr :)
1. I played a lot of footy, culminating in a senior premiership for Aboriginal club Rumbalara. I love AFL and am as proud of my achievement as a premiership player as anything I've done musically.
2. Deep down I'm a conservationist. My wife used to work at the Melbourne Zoo and through hanging out with keepers and educators I came to realise how important conservation is.
3. In high school, when we got to pick subjects in year 10 I selected special PE (surfing and golf) physical recreation (ice skating and 10 Pin bowling) and woodwork. Fair to say I wasn't ever going to become the next Dr Julius Summer.
4. I only started playing guitar and singing at 17. Up until then I'd played trumpet right through school and even auditioned for the Melbourne Conservatory of music: classical.
5. I refuse to watch any movie I know will make me cry. I cry easily, so there's a million 'must see movies' I've never seen.
