ALISON SCOTT IS THE STRONGEST NEW 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) and bass player Justin Rieken (Diamondhead, Mick Sterling and the Irresistibles, Cate Fierro), 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 14,000 units and counting. She has spent the past several months in the studio working on her 6th release, STONE COLD LOVE, an originals album due to release on 8/21/15 and 8/22/15 at The Dakota Jazz Club.
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 (Rock The Cause)-”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.”
