Hilary Scott is a multiple award-winning singer-songwriter who brings her unique brand of melodic and lyrically memorable songs to audiences nationally and internationally. Euro Ferrari, renowned for his work in all genres and with famous artists (Clapton, Sting, Pavarotti) all over the world, when speaking of Hilary Scott and her music said: “…Hilary Scott writes and sings in a way that creates a fascinating and intimate world, and it is enough for her to utilize only a whisper to raise deep emotions in the listener, her voice is absolutely extraordinary in its emotional greatness… it would be difficult for her pop/country style not to enter deep into the heart, in every way.”
Hilary Scott’s new album – Freight Train Love!
“Scott has a sharp pen, a smoking voice and more soul than a white girl sounding like a white girl should have.” – Chris Spector, Midwest Record
“Blessed with a powerful voice and equally at home on guitar, keyboards or violin Hilary is a talented lady and she writes good songs, too, seven of the ten on this album are from her pen, including the title track which starts things off. “Freight Train Love” [title track] has a yearning, soulful R&B feel to it…Hilary really comes alive on the duet with Nashville songwriter Kevin Fisher on “If You Don’t Love Me”. This track is good enough to be listed in the Musical Collaboration category at the CMAs”. – Paul Collins, Maverick Magazine
“Sultry” “…on a cold, rainy afternoon I decided to pop the disc into my car’s CD changer for the commute home and it was as if the clouds parted for a ray of sunshine.” Jay Minkin—No Depression
“Hilary Scott has a soulful and beautifully expressive voice that knocks it out of the park…Listen Up!…It’ll make you HAPPY!” – Bob Glaub (Journey, Lennon Fogarty, Springsteen, Ronstadt, Raitt, Cher, Jackson Brown)
“Unbelievably Talented! This CD is full of solid lyrics, a wide vocal range, and melodies that will stick with you for days. Check it out!” Five star iTunes review by Jayhawk in Colorado
Listen to the title track – Freight Train Love! – You’ll love it!
