2017 release. As much as this is a story about a comedian, singer, and actress, it really starts with a kid who wore a tiara to school every day... That kid grew up to be Scout Durwood. Many years before she made audiences laugh starring on MTV's Mary + Jane (Produced by Snoop Dogg) and Oxygen's Funny Girls, she knew that being different was her greatest strength. That free spirit defines her first album for Blue Élan Records, Take One Thing Off. "Growing up, I was painfully weird, but blissfully unaware of it," she smiles "I was everybody's lovable little weirdo. After college, I moved to New York. I knew I wanted to be in show business, and in my mind, the way to make it was to be the most original, most creative, and most outside-the-box." She went way outside-the-box, spending nearly five years as a draw in New York's burlesque scene: named as one of the Huffington Post's "20 Burlesque Stars to Know," to boot. With this unforgettable experience under her belt, she traded the Big Apple for Los Angeles in 2012. Throughout 2016, Durwood architected what would become Take One Thing Off with Dave riding shotgun in the producer's chair. The 19-track album intermingles a hysterical stand-up set at underground Los Angeles comedy theater The Pack with songs loosely mapped over Scout's time in New York.
