The Eric Jones Trio featuring Huxsie Scott

Huxsie Scott Bio

A native of Savannah, Georgia, Huxsie Scott is regarded as one of the greatest jazz/blues artists ever to live and perform in the Savannah Coastal Area. Huxsie began her career as a jazz vocalist in 1973. She has performed with many of the area’s premier jazz ensembles and symphony orchestras and was a featured opener for such jazz greats as the late Lionel Hampton and McCoy Tyner. She was the original vocalist for the Savannah Jazz Orchestra and worked as the featured vocalist for jazz great and savannah resident, bassist Ben Tucker. In 1987 Huxsie came full circle and went back to her roots, singing Gospel and Inspirational music. She has recorded four full Gospel projects, an album of Johnny Mercer music and a self titled album of her favorite standards. Huxsie has been a featured vocalist at the Savannah Theatre since they opened in August of 2002. She is also a staff member in the music ministry at Overcoming By Faith Church. She is the proud mother of twin daughters and a son, the grandmother of eleven and great grandmother of one.
