Fresh twist on folk rock; Sarah MacLachlan meets Beth Orton and they fiddle with the blues. Take one part excellent songwriting, one part stunning vocals, mix in guitars, keyboards, strings and a wicked harmonica.
The Floating World
When Hilary Scott sings, people stop and listen. One of the first times she performed at a bar in Seattle she was told, "don't worry if people don't really pay attention. The music here is more for background." The place fell silent when she began to sing. People seem drawn to her style and her music because it provides them with a total and unique "experience."
Pieter from Holland has this to say about "The Floating World":
"Great album, especially the lyrics and soulful music/ Hilary puts us in an emotionally-bound atmosphere where you only can listen to her music. Good glass of wine, candlelight or anything else which gives you romantic feelings".
A musician since the age
of three and a writer since the age of five, it seemed natural that
Hilary would one day combine the two, and the result is explosive. Raised on piano, violin, voice
and guitar, she experiments with different sounds, instruments, and
styles to create unique audio artwork. Her influences when she were
growing up were vast, but she felt a special connection to the music
of Peter Gabriel and Nick Drake. From Peter Gabriel grew her passion
for percussion and orchestration, and from Nick Drake came her love
of honest lyrics and heartbreaking guitar melodies. Female artists
she has been compared to include Sarah MacLachlan, Ani DiFranco,
Melissa Ferrick, and other modern songwriters. Listeners can be
gratified with blues, folk, rock, pop and classical influences in
her music, and yet still find they are listening to something
completely fresh and difficult to define.
