It has been 4 years since Alison Scott released an album of original songs. Since 2011 and the release of Chinese Whispers, she put out her second covers album, (Hiding Under The Covers Vol. 2) which included interpretations of everything from Tom Waits and Radiohead to The Beatles. Then came a holiday album, “Alison Scott’s A Soulful Christmas”, a fresh spin on holiday favorites. This time around, Alison is getting back to her roots…STONE COLD LOVE is a return to the powerful, soul-stained jams that have led to 15 sold out shows at the Dakota and a large and loyal fan base around the midwest. Along with writer/producer/guitarist Kevin Bowe (Westerberg/Mats, Etta James, Joe Cocker, Communist Daughter), drummer Peter Anderson (Honeydogs, Replacements, Ocean Blue) and bassist Justin Reiken, Alison plans to release “STONE COLD LOVE” on August 21st and 22nd at The Dakota.
What Other People Have Been Saying...
“Scott’s third album is her most formative to date – the kind of recording that shows how this singer/pianist from the western burbs can inject ample amounts of Southern soul and muddy grit into her music.” -Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune
“Alison Scott is a cool, oxygen alternative to the stale air coming out of many singer-songwriters today. Her fresh approach to songwriting around a piano will leave you fully satisfied, feeling clear headed and ready for more.” – Craig Grossman (Green Room Booking)
