Hilary’s intimate vocals and improvisational piano creates stunning versions of standard and contemporary favorites, with shades of folk, jazz and blues.
Singer songwriter Hilary Scott has created her first all-cover album, interpreting some of her favorite songwriters with her own beautiful arrangements. Like the color, Indigo the album combines many
musical “hues” and is overlaid with a feeling of blue. This album covers songs from nearly every decade since the 1930’s, and bounces from jazz to pop to folk.
The idea for this album came about as Hilary was traveling and playing music overseas. Hilary says, “I’m a songwriter… covering music has never been my priority, yet I’ve found joy in the process of interpretation….I wanted these takes to capture my live performances as possible, using arrangements that have grown out of months of improvisation, filling 4-hour shows 6 nights a week.”
