ALISON SCOTT | SOUL/POP

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.


She’s got pipes, personality, and an undeniable soulfulness.

BIO

While staying indier than indie and completely ignoring the hipster rulebook, through word of mouth with very little radio or media hype, Alison Scott 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 theIrresistibles, 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 12,000 units and counting. She released her 5th studio album in November 2013 – Alison Scott’s “A Soulful Christmas” in conjunction with a very successful 7-city tour throughout December 2013.
