7:30 pm Alison Scott
$15 Adults, $12 Seniors & Studentst Singer-songwriter Alison Scott is originality, confidence, and charisma all in one package, with all the talent to back it up. She belts out her heartfelt lyrics with both grace and style. There is no doubt Alison is redefining her genre, and people are starting to notice; she is the strongest new voice to come out of the Minneapolis music scene in years. Her organic style ignores the “rules of cool” that limit so much of today’s music, and instead delivers a unique sound which combines soulful vocals and brilliant lyrics with a keen sense of creativity and passion. With a gorgeous voice that combines the confident swagger of Cassandra Wilson, the electrifying emotion of Aretha, and the sweeping emotion of Eva Cassidy, Scott’s brilliant songwriting paints pictures that dance in your head long after she’s left the stage. A true multi-talented performer, Scott’s voice can soar high one minute and be seductive and fragile the next. She’s also a keyboard talent, whose beautiful harmonies mesh with her skintight backing band that’s made up of four of the Twin Cities’ most accomplished players, all with experience and recognition. Along with local superstar and triple platinum songwriter, Kevin Bowe on guitar, Alison’s band includes veteran keyboardist James Tyler O’Neill, rock solid bassist Steve Price, and drum sensation Pete Anderson. Together, this five-piece unit is as powerful as it is talented; they are a serious force to be reckoned with when they fuse contemporary soul with undercurrents of 60’s Brit-pop, silky jazz, and full-throttle rock. Alison has sold out the Dakota Jazz Club over a dozen shows in a row and with her band, she has opened for several national acts such as Bon Jovi, Chris Isaak, Marc Cohn, Boz Scaggs, and Nanci Griffith. Alison’s latest CD release, “Chinese Whispers,” has been picked up for national distribution and is creating a lot of buzz around the midwest. It was named one of the year’s ten best albums by the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Alison Scott is truly one of those unforgettable artists that is destined for greatness.
