SCALA Live @ The Wheaty Thursday 31st January 2019

1. Jessica Rae
Jessica Rae is a multi instrumentalist/singer songwriter from Adelaide who writes emotionally charged songs about life, love, and the ups and downs that go along with them. She has been playing music for over 20 years, and writing her own for 10. Her goal is to connect with her audience in a deep way, through sharing her words on stage.

Having been compared to the likes of Missy Higgins, Joni Mitchell, and Alanis Morissette, you are surely in for a treat!

2. Paula Standing
Soulful vocals and powerful stories of ordinary and extraordinary people. Paula Standing takes everyday experiences and turns them into delicious tales with a sting.

Immersed in a sea of live music created during her family’s regular ‘front parlour’ sessions, Paula continues to be impacted by the musical and personal influences in her life.
Gritty tales of truth, with a spattering of murder ballads, cloaked in an innocent country rock sound like a Linda Ronstadt and Stevie Nicks love child, luring us into a false sense of security as we become the voyeurs and she becomes the story. All else becomes silent.

Clever lyrics, vocal prowess, real story-soundscapes, Paula Standing delivers with her ‘fist in a velvet glove’ signature.

3. The Good Questions
The Good Questions observe the wonder of life, the universe and everything, and transform their musings into song. From emotionally introspective soundscapes to some good ol’ rock and roll and everything in between, the Good Questions will take you on a journey to the centre of the earthling. It all boils down to hydrogen, gravity and time.

The Good Questions are Simon Frank, Marta Bayly, Alex Clermont, Paul Rupinskas and Craig Lauritsen.

A couple of ‘SCALA Spotlights’ will start off the night: Jaime Willson and Eleanor Meegan. Our spotlights will air two of their best or newest to our wonderfully attentive and respectful SCALA audience. (NB: These Spotlights are booked in advance with a preference for SCALA members – please email
