Alison Scott

Alison Scott is the strongest new voice to come out of the Minneapolis music scene in years; her soulful organic sound has cut through the din of indie rock to build a large and loyal following throughout the midwest.

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 (Brian Just Band), Alison has sold out the prestigious Dakota Jazz Club for over a dozen shows in a row. They are also performing at benefits, corporate functions, and festivals; opening for national artists like: Bon Jovi, Chris Isaak, Marc Cohn, Boz Scaggs, John Hiatt, and Nanci Griffith.

After signing with a national agency, the band has started touring in earnest. Alison's CDs have sold almost 10,000 units; the newest release, Chinese Whispers, has just been picked up for national distribution and was named one of the year's ten best by the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
