“What struck me about Bar Scott’s music is the power of her voice. It just lights up the soul and chases away the crud that’s been building up in there for years.” (Jon Pope – The Ripple Effect).
Bar Scott has inspired listeners with the strength of her voice and the immediacy of her songs for over fifteen years. At every show, she digs deep within herself to sing and then takes her audience with her. On stage, it’s clear that there’s no other place in the world she’d rather be. Comfortable alone at the piano, guitar or singing a capella in a great hall, Bar also loves to perform with background vocalists, a bassist or other accompaniment. With six CDs of original songs, and three of covers including songs from the American Songbook under her belt, Bar moves comfortably from one style to the next.
She’s performed at The Beacon Theater, The Cathedral at St John the Divine, The Clearwater and Falcon Ridge Musical Festivals, Terrytown Town Music Hall, the Kimmel Center and Philadelphia Cathedral, and many medium and smaller venues around the northeast. In the studio, she’s worked with, among others, bassist Tony Levin, drummer Jerry Marotta, classical guitarist Fred Hand, arranger and keyboardist David Sancious and the string quartet known as Ethel.
“Bar Scott is without a doubt one of the great voices on the earth,” according to Jim Croce’s producer Tommy West. And Judy Whitfield, a Woodstock presenter, said, “Bar Scott creates Beauty,” which is exactly what she has always hoped to do.
