Hilary Scott Official Website

"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

Jeff Dame of Northeast In-Tune has said this about Hilary and her music: "Hilary has the potential to be as big as the likes of Alanis Morisette, Tori Amos, or Sheryl Crow. Listen to her now and you can 'I've been in from the beginning.'  "[Hilary Scott's] music features introspective writing and a clear, soulful voice...with influences in blues, folk, pop, rock and classical" (Liz Van Hoosen, Columbia Daily Tribune). Billy Burns, former drummer for Ray Charles says, "Hilary's voice communicates so much in and of itself. I see artists all the time, some with potential, some without....Hilary has the proverbial 'IT!' "  French newspaper, La Montagne had this to say : "... an astounding opening performance by Hilary Scott - (what a voice!!!!)" in a review of Cock Robin's performance and Hilary Scott's opener for the band at La2Deuche in Auvergne. 

Hilary Scott opened for artists such as Cock Robin, Beth Orton, Jonatha Brooke, Little Feat, Chuck Berry, Tanya Tucker and more.  She had also performed solo for extended engagements in Asia at the Park Hyatt Saigon and Paris Lounge in the Grand Hyatt Seoul, and has toured in Italy and France. 

Hilary was awarded First Place in the International division of the singer-songwriter competition Festival Degli Autori in Sanremo, Italy.  Her winning song, "And Just" was produced by Euro Ferrari.
