Scout LaRue Willis
Musician, actor, writer, and influencer Scout LaRue Willis parlayed her myriad experiences in the arts into a successful music career with the release of her soulful, roots-leaning debut album in 2022. The daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, Scout spent her formative years trekking the globe with her superstar parents. Growing up in a musical household, she developed a deep love of folk, blues, gospel, and country music, with Patsy Cline and Marty Robbins serving as early influences. While attending Brown University in the 2010s, Willis formed the group Gus + Scout with her childhood friend Gus Wenner and released a self-titled EP. The ensuing years saw Willis launch her own clothing brand and make occasional appearances on reality programs while continuing to hone her guitar and songwriting skills. By 2022 she had amassed enough material to issue her first solo effort, an eponymous, profoundly personal collection of songs rooted in Americana, folk, pop, and country.
