Susie Scurry & The Grand Magoozi

Susie Scurry is a singer-songwriter from Melbourne, Australia. In the spirit of golden-old classic standards her songwriting is clear and precise, original and familiar, honest and romantic. Her voice delivers lament and subtle wit in equal measure, singing about life and death, love lost and a modern world gone awry. Her style and sound has been described by the press as “nostalgic, dreamy folk” that lies “somewhere between the jazz club and the barnyard.”

In 2017, Susie travelled to Sheffield, England to record with Mercury-nominated producer Collin Elliot, best known for his work with Richard Hawley and Jarvis Cocker. The finished result will be a lush new six-track, with the gorgeous first single The Elvis Hour. More than a love letter to the King, this is an autumnal lament about the Sunday night blues, and the anxiety of working a job you don’t love. Telling the story of an hourly program on the dusty end of the AM dial — the now defunct Magic 1278 — which paid tribute to Elvis every Sunday night, showcasing his prolific career and breadth of styles from Vegas to Hawaii, cowboy to crooner. The Elvis Hour is an homage to the iconic legend and the lonely existence of “The King of Rock ’n’ Roll.”
