Colorado Springs Independent – “Hilary Scott Gets The Balance Right”

Colorado Springs Independent

Bill Kopp of the Colorado Springs Independent interviewed Hilary Scott in advance of her show at Zodiac Venue at 9 PM on January 20th.   Bill Kopp writes, …”Scott put those skills together in support of Freight Train Love, a 2014 Indiegogo-funded album that features musicians who’ve played with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Lyle Lovett and Lucinda Williams. One of the premiums that Scott offered was a written-to-order song. “And it ended up being a very large portion of the funds that we raised,” she says. “I think I had 23 different individuals who paid for an original song or a cover!”

The songwriting prompts were often nothing more than a key word, phrase or theme; from there, Scott was left to her own creative devices to write a song. “It’s ended up being a great writing exercise,” says Scott…”I push myself outside of the stories I might ordinarily want to tell, whatever autobiographical things I want to write about…”

The Kansas City Star says this about Hilary Scott

“Longtime Missouri resident Hilary Scott, who recently relocated to Seattle, focuses on a rustic form of country-steeped music. Scott’s beguiling cover of Nicolette Larson’s 1978 pop hit “Lotta Love” is a highlight of her 10th album, “Freight Train Love,” a recording that also touches on pop, folk and blues. With Brandon Estelle.”

Hilary Scott appears at 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 12. The Gospel Lounge at Knuckleheads. 816-483-1456. $10 in advance.
