David Thorne Scott is an entertainer whose beautiful voice and creativity have thrilled audiences in venues large and small. His passion for bringing a modern edge to the classics of the Great American Songbook, as well as his original songs, earned his album Shade a Top 5 CD of the Year by the Jazz Education Journal. Cadence Magazine said he phrases like a saxophone player and is as slippery and hip as the young Mel Tormé. Herb Wong, one of the west coast's leading jazz experts, wrote “I haven’t been this moved by a performance of ‘For All We Know’ since Carmen McRae.”
David has sung with the Boston Pops, the Capital Jazz Orchestra, the New England Wind Symphony, and the Melrose Symphony, the Bill Elliott Swing Orchestra and the Thinkin' Big Band.
David's current project is called Thornewood, a forthcoming album where he mixes and matches elements of jazz and Americana: Cole Porter and Harold Arlen right next to John Denver and Townes Van Zandt. Special guests on the album include Paula Cole, Peter Eldridge, Jason Palmer, Walter Smith III, and Sara Caswell.
Founded in 2014 by David Thorne Scott after a stint performing with the legendary Four Freshmen, the Vintage Vocal Quartet is comprised of double-threat singer/instrumentalists who vocalize and harmonize while keeping a steady beat on bass, guitar, piano and trumpet. The group's repertoire is inspired by groups like Glenn Miller’s Modernaires, the Nat King Cole Trio, the Andrews Sisters, and Tommy Dorsey’s Pied Pipers, as well as singers like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and Jo Stafford.
