Scott Darlow is a Yorta Yorta man, singer, songwriter, guitarist, Yidaki, Trombone, Saxophone, Trumpet player and public speaker plus a former teacher. Scott has come from a diverse musical background and his music is like no other...it’s is a “Scott Darlow Sound” and you need to hear it. Scott once again yarns with Gman about his new single, “‘You Can’t See Black In The Dark’ on 3KND's Big Brekkie. Scott Darlow says, “’You Can’t See Black In The Dark’ is a song that I’ve spent my whole life trying to write. It is difficult to articulate the battle I’ve felt as an Indigenous person, when there is still so much love, passion and connection to Australian land. ‘You Can’t See Black In The Dark’ isn’t just a song written for the current Black Lives Matter movement – this is the journey that I have lived and breathed my entire life.”
Ian Kenny says, “‘You Can’t See Black In The Dark’ is a passionate song talking about real issues in our own backyard. Scott Darlow has a truly powerful message and now is a good time for everyone to start listening to a voice like his. Recognise, reform and reconcile are the words I hear.” The proceeds from streams and downloads of ‘You Can’t See Black In The Dark’ will be donated to Wirrpanda Foundation. Launched in 2005 by former West Coast Eagles player David Wirrpanda, The Wirrpanda Foundation aims to lead the provision of education and employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians by working together to empower and build capacity amongst individuals, their families and their communities.
Scott’s advice to up and coming artists.. Be a good person. It’s not just the talented people you want to work with, it’s the easiest to get along with . Work hard, work on your craft. Be the best artist you can be, but also understand that no one can be you, so be unique and be yourself, be comfortable in who you are. When people say you’re no good, just smile and keep on working. Don’t give up as persistence is king.
