About Alison Scott

Richfield, MN

Alison Scott is the strongest new voice to come out
of the Minneapolis music scene in many years; her
soulful, organic sound completely ignores the ‘rules
of cool’ that limit so much of today’s music. Working
with platinum and Grammy-winning guitarist Kevin
Bowe (Paul Westerberg, Etta James, Jonny Lang),
drummer Peter Anderson (Polara, Honeydogs) and
bassist Steve Price (Rex Daisy) the band sold out
the Dakota the last four times they have been there.
They are also headlining on weekends at the Fine
Line, The Varsity Theater, The Guthrie Theater and
other venues as well as performing at benefits,
corporate functions, and festivals opening for
National artists like Chris Isaak, Marc Cohn, Boz
Scaggs, and Nanci Griffith. Cities 97 has jumped right
on board, giving both of her releases regular airplay
as well as live-in-studio gigs. Alison’s new EP “Hiding Under The Covers” was listed by
the St. Paul Pioneer Press as one of the year’s 10 best! 
Press Quotes:
LA Based magazine, SingerUniverse- “August 2009 Singer of the Month”
Dale Kawashima ( “Soulful ballads are an excellent showcase for
Scott’s strong, passionate, and earthy vocals.”
Chris Roberts (MN Public Radio) “a soaring, agile voice”
Erik Stromstad (Varsity Theater) “I got chills the first time I saw her”
Brian Turner (Cities 97) “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
force to be reckoned with”
Pat O’Brien (City Pages) “Alison’s songs are deceptively damaged and clever; she’s not
even remotely interested in pleasing the so-called hipsters”.
Ross Raihala (St. Paul Pioneer Press) “like an outtake from Dusty in Memphis, pure jaw
dropping soul, steely conviction that’s hard to deny”
