Aurora Scott

BandJazzSinger/Songwriter

Aurora Scott is an emerging Canadian Singer/Song-Writer with a lot of soul. She is known to perform heartfelt originals in various genres, including Jazz, Folk, and Pop, but it has also been said that she "takes familiar songs, modernizes them, dusts them off, holds them up and polishes them in the light until they shine as brilliantly as ever, not new, but from an angle we haven’t heard before."

Biography

Like the beautiful northern lights after which she was named, Aurora Scott possesses a rare and magnetic presence that has been captivating audiences since she was a child. She has been pursuing her multi-faceted dreams as an actress, dancer and singer since she was 14 years old, and it wasn’t long before the rising star honed her talents performing in lead roles on stages from Nova Scotia to Alberta to Thailand. Aurora has performed for the Premier of British Columbia, and the Canadian military saluted her talent when she was a finalist in their national talent search in 2010. Deciding to focus exclusively on her love of jazz, blues and R&B, Aurora studied at Camosun College in partnership with the Victoria Conservatory of Music, and independently released her first full-length album, “Dance With You” in January of 2012. After returning from Nova Scotia where she received rave reviews for her recent performances with The Bill Stevenson Trio, winners of multiple East Coast Music Awards and Maple Blues Awards, Aurora’s busy schedule now includes performing at festivals, clubs, and private corporate engagements, as well as writing songs and collaborating with the many excellent players in B.C.’s jazz scene.

DANCE WITH YOU

LOVER... WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?

I WANT TO DANCE WITH YOU
I WANT TO MAKE ROMANCE WITH YOU TONIGHT...
SO TAKE A CHANCE BABE,
BABY TAKE ME IN YOUR ARMS AND HOLD ME TIGHT

WHEN I FIRST SAW HIM
WALKING DOWN THE STREET...
I THOUGHT TO MYSELF,
OH, THIS MAN I HAVE TO MEET...
UMM...
SO DARK AND HANDSOME
I COULD NOT FIND WORDS TO SAY
HE LOOKED RIGHT THROUGH ME...
AND THEN HE LOOKED THE OTHER WAY

I WANT TO DANCE WITH YOU
I WANT TO MAKE ROMANCE WITH YOU TONIGHT...
SO TAKE A CHANCE BABE,
BABY TAKE ME IN YOUR ARMS AND HOLD ME TIGHT

UMM...

(Instrumental)

DANCE, DANCE...
DANCE, DANCE...
DANCE, DANCE...
DANCE, DANCE, DANCE, DANCE, DANCE, DANCE......

DANCE WITH ME
I WANT TO MAKE ROMANCE WITH YOU TONIGHT
SO TAKE A CHANCE BABE,
BABY TAKE ME IN YOUR ARMS AND HOLD ME TIGHT...

I WANT TO DANCE WITH YOU
I WANT TO MAKE ROMANCE WITH YOU TONIGHT
SO TAKE A CHANCE BABE,
BABY TAKE ME IN YOUR ARMS AND HOLD ME TIGHT.

AMY

AMY,
YOU ARE SO LOVELY
HOW I MISS YOUR PRETTY SMILE
THE COLOUR OF YOUR HAIR, IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL
YOU USED TO LET IT OUT ONCE IN A WHILE

OH OH OH OH… OH OH OH OH… OH… HMMM…

AS WE GREW, UP WE’D BUILD CASTLES IN THE SAND
AND MAKE SNOW ANGELS IN BARE FEET…
WE USED TO RUN AWAY, HAND IN HAND
AND MAKE IT HALF WAY DOWN THE STREET

(Bridge)

WHEN YOU’D CRY IT ONLY GOT HARDER
WHEN YOU’D TRY IT DIDN’T WORK OUT, OH
I KNOW YOU, YOU LOVE ME TOO SO DARLIN,
LETS BE FRIENDS AGAIN…
OH OH OH…

OH OH OH OH… OH OH OH… OOH…

YEARS WENT BY, AND DAYS GREW LONG WITHOUT YOU
I THOUGHT ABOUT YOU ALL THE TIME
WE’D HOLD ON TIGHT, WHEN THINGS GOT ROUGH
GOD THE WALDEC LINE WAS TOUGH,
BUT NOW WE’RE FINE…
OH YES,
WE ARE FINE…

(Bridge)

WHEN YOU’D CRY IT ONLY GOT HARDER
WHEN YOU’D TRY IT DIDN’T WORK OUT, OH
I KNOW YOU, YOU LOVE ME TOO SO DARLIN,
LETS BE FRIENDS AGAIN…

AMY…
AMY…

OH WE USED TO TALK ALL NIGHT
WE’D LAUGH AND SING AND SOMETIMES WE’D CRY
BUT ALWAYS KNEW THAT IT WOULD BE OK…
WE HAD EACH OTHER THEN, WE HAVE EACH OTHER NOW TOO
LET’S GET BACK IN TOUCH
WE ARE SISTERS FROM DIFFERENT MISTERS
BUT THAT’S OK, YOU ARE MY AMY…

I LOVE YOU
I LOVE YOU
I LOVE YOU
OH OH OH OOH
I REALLY LOVE YOU
I LOVE YOU
OH OH…
I LOVE YOU

I’VE SAID ENOUGH…
I’VE SAID TOO MUCH…

THE NORTHERN SKY

Written By: Aurora Scott

Lyrics & Melody by Aurora Scott - Dec, 2011

The Northern Sky

For all that I've known, for all that I've had
For all that I've loved, I have cried for...
For all that I've felt, for all that I've cried
I have said my farewell, like the sun to the northern sky...

The northern sky, the northern sky...
I have cried tears of ice for the northern sky


For all who I've known, for all who I've had
A brother or sister, a mom or a dad
I love you my friends though I can't stay for long...
You'll lie deep in my heart, in my spirit, my song

in the deepest of snow, in the darkest of night
in the cold breeze that blows, in the dawns early light

For all that I've known, for all that I've had
for all that i've loved, i have cried for
for all I have felt, and for all that I've cried
I have said my farewell, like the sun to the northern sky...

the northern sky, the northern sky...
I have cried tears of ice for the northern sky.
