Alison Scott to release new CD of cover songs this week

HowWasTheShow’s BFF Sara Montour took this photo of Alison Scott at the JoAnna James farewell show at The Fine Line in March of 2008. I am happy to say I was in attendance that night to watch Alison perform for an energized Minneapolis crowd that didn’t mind a bit that much of the country’s musical fans had their attention focused elsewhere on SXSW that night. Once you have experienced Scott’s soulful poise, you will not forget it. Her voice pours forth feeling and understanding well beyond her years.

Fortunately for us in the Twin Cities, Miss Scott has no plans to leave town at this time and is set to release a brand new album, Hiding Under The Covers, on Saturday, November 8th. True to its name, the album is all covers, including songs by Paul Westerberg (“Meet Me Down The Alley”), Prince (“Sign Of The Times”), Sonny & Cher (“The Beat Goes On”), Blind Faith (“Can’t Find My Way Home”), and more.

Scott’s new release comes hot on the heels of her 2008 album of original material Wish On The Moon, and she’ll celebrate the release at the Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis Saturday. Scott will be joined by Tommy Barbarella (original New Power Generation keyboardist) as well as her core band of musical notables Kevin Bowe (guitar), Steve Price (bass) and Peter Anderson (drums).
