Alison Scott

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 PEOPLE love, not
the kind  that people are TOLD they should love by
reading someone else's blog. 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 current flavor 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) and
keyboardist James Tyler O'Neill,  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.  Last summer was spent sharing her band with Freedy Johnston at festivals all
around the midwest which has spread the word about this amazing artist;  Alison’s releases
have sold almost 10,000 units and counting, work has already begun on a new record.

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

Pat O’Brien (City Pages)-“Alison’s songs are deceptively damaged and clever; she’s not

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.”
