Maverick Magazine online edition also posts a review of “Freight Train Love”

Paul Collins, in his review of Freight Train Love for Maverick Magazine’s online edition had this to say:

” I’ve just one ‘L’ says this defiant Miss and you have to sympathise with her more especially as the music on this album is much better than any of Lady A’s recent output….Blessed with a powerful voice and equally at home on guitar, keyboards or violin Hilary is a talented lady and she writes good songs too, seven of the ten on this album are from her pen including the title track which starts things off.”

“Didn’t Make It Alive” makes semifinals in UK Songwriting Contest

We just learned that Hilary Scott and Michael ONeill’s song, “Didn’t Make It Alive” (track 10 on the Freight Train Love album) has been selected as a semi-finalist in the Country division.

All Semi Finalist are considered for finalist positions. Winners and Finalists will be announced in December. Songs selected as Semi Finalists are in the top 20 per cent (one in five) of all entries as rated by the judges. In other words, most songs, four out of five songs entered in the contest this year, did NOT make it through to this stage. If a song is chosen as a Semi Finalist it will continue to the higher judging stages and has the chance to reach the Finals and may even be a Winner.

We’ll keep you posted!!

LA Music Examiner review of Freight Train Love by William Phoenix

William Phoenix of the LA Music Examiner reviewed Freight Train Love, and had this to say:

“Despite a music career that began in Seattle more than a decade ago, Hilary Scott—(one “L”)—is not a household name. If the award-winning. Indie-Americana singer-songwriter’s new album, Freight Train Love, is any indication; this won’t be the case for too much longer…Check out Hilary Scott’s Freight Train Love. It sounds like she put a “Lotta Love” into it.”

Hilary Scott excited to be considered for “Minkins Music Best of 2014”

Jay Minkin, writer for “No Depression” and publishes his “Music Best of” each year.  Although she was not the winner, we are so proud to announce that Hilary Scott made Jay’s list for consideration (a finalist) for his Female Artist of the Year award!

Jay writes:  “As in year’s past, my list is more about quality than quantity with Hall of Fame musicians sharing the spotlight with some relatively unknown singer/songwriters whom more of my audiophile readers should be aware of.” 

Jay notes this about Hilary Scott:  “The lovely Saint Louis songwriter Hilary Scott came into my sights with Freight Train Love and impressed this long time Cardinal fan.”
