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 fluffy pop OR the trendy flavor of the month. Working with multi-platinum guitarist/producer Kevin Bowe (Paul Westerberg, Etta James, Jonny Lang), drummer Peter Anderson (Polara, Honeydogs), bassist Justin Rieken, 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 filling 500 seat theaters. Alison’s releases have sold over 15,000 units and counting. She has spent the past several months in the studio working on her 6th release, Stone Cold Love, which released in August of 2015 to a sold out weekend 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)
