 Notes & Reviews
Alison Scott is the strongest voice to come out of Minneapolis in many years and her soulful, organic sound has quietly built a very large and loyal following. While staying indier than indie and completely ignoring the hipster rulebook, through word of mouth with very little radio or media hype, Alison is making the kind of soul music that music fans love. True music lovers have always responded to an amazing voice singing great songs, and they always will- from Aretha to Adele, this is timeless music that transcends style and fashion, something for the silent majority of listeners who aren't interested in ?uffy pop OR the trendy ?avor of the month. Working with multi-platinum guitarist/producer Kevin Bowe (Paul Westerberg, Etta James, Jonny Lang), drummer Peter Anderson (Polara, Honeydogs), bassist Steve Price (Rex Daisy), Alison has become one of the most popular live acts in Minneapolis; she has sold out the Dakota Jazz Club over a dozen shows in a row, and is now ?lling 500 seat theaters. Alison's releases have sold over 12,000 units and counting. Press Quotes: Youa Vang (City Pages)- 'All artists hold a secret: the source of their creativity. Alison Scott hides hers under a controlled demeanor, but onstage comes alive as a soulful musician that shares original and astonishing personal music.' Scott Herold- 'Alison Scott is a Rock Star! As an artist she believes passionately that music can build communities and impact the world. This shines through in every song she writes or performs. She is an inspiring young talent with a unique gift for story telling. I am having a blast watching her career grow.' Jon Bream (MN StarTribune)-'She's got pipes, personality, and an undeniable soulfulness.' Chris Riemenschneider (MN StarTribune)-'Alison injects ample amounts of Southern soul and muddy grit into her music.' Brian Turner (Cities 97 DJ)-'Don't forget us when you're a big star, which you will soon be.' John Ziegler (Duluth Tribune)-'Somewhere between Carole King and Alicia Keys... a force to be reckoned with.' Pat O'Brien (City Pages)-'Alison's songs are deceptively damaged and clever; she's not even remotely interested in pleasing the so-called hipsters.' Ross Raihala (St. Paul Pioneer Press)-'like an outtake from Dusty in Memphis, pure jaw dropping soul, steely conviction that's hard to deny.' Laura Bethel (Maverick Magazine- Kent, UK)gives her 5 stars- 'Deep, raw, and very, very real. Alison Scott's new record is devilishly appealing, sultry and sexy.' .
