Twisted ballads and odd pop from BBC 6 Music regular, Scott Lavene. Stories collected from a wandering life full of unpredictable humour, unguarded vulnerability, wry observation and humble wisdom.


“A master storyteller” Tom Robinson BBC 6Music

“An Essex boy Lou Reed” Louder Than War

“Think Baxter Dury’s warped younger brother” The Times

Scott  Lavene is a storyteller who can capture all the madness, joy and frustration of life while singing about worms writhing in the ground. Lavene’s been in bands since his teens, but only really located the voice that makes his albums Broke and Milk City Sweethearts so remarkable – that combination of wry observation, humble wisdom, unguarded vulnerability and unpredictable humour – in a music workshop for alcoholics and addicts, long after he’d bid farewell to childhood dreams of pop stardom, and the ghosts and demons that accompany those dreams.

With his stories, Lavene makes us all feel a little less alone – he’s that voice in our ear who always has a tale more weird, more tragic, more funny than our own, but in whose experiences we can see our own. Laughter, tears, madness and redemption reside within this magical songs, the full spectrum of existence. You’d be a fool to miss out.

Please note: 16+ event.
