Hiding Under the Covers
Alison Scott is the strongest new voice to come out of the Minneapolis music scene in many years. Her soulful, organic, sound completely ignores the rules of cool that define so much of today's music. Working with platinum and Grammy-winning guitarist/producer Kevin Bowe (Paul Westerberg, Etta James, Jonny Lang), drummer Peter Anderson (Polara, Honeydogs) and bassist Steve Price (Rex Daisy) the band has been performing sold out shows at Mpls venues like the Dakota, Fine Line and Varsity Theater along with several exclusive benefits and corporate functions. Her new CD was listed as one of the year's top 10 by the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The word is out..... Chris Roberts (MN Public Radio) "a soaring, agile voice" Erik Stromstad (Varsity Theater) "I got chills the first time I saw her" Brian Turner (Cities 97) "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"
