Album Name(s): Come In, Come In: Live (2003)
Out of the Wilderness (2004)
Artist: Hilary Scott
Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
I reviewed Hilary Scott’s CD, The Floating World” back in July of 2003. I remember being very impressed with her not only as a singer with a fabulous voice, but also a musician (playing several instruments on each recording) and as a great songwriter. Especially since she’s pretty young.
Recently I got a package containing the rest of her discography and just wanted to share some really good recordings.
“Come In, Come In: Live” is really nice Live CD. It has a lot of the songs I already like of hers and they’re performed very well.
“People on a Train” has a pretty intense guitar solo.
It’s obvious that Hilary Scott is not just a studio wonder, but can perform in front of a live audience with just as much skill.
She does a lovely cover of Sinead O’Conner’s “Last Day of Our Acquaintance”.
“Hypothermia” is a great collection of fantastic pop-rock songs that deserve more attention than they’re getting.
I especially like “Jezebel”, it’s a hauntingly pretty song.
This one you can only buy on her site
“Out of the Wilderness” is an enhanced CD that includes videos and interviews as well as songs.
I found the interview video particularly charming. It gives us a nice insight into this talented young woman.
“Calls From Springfield” is another highlight esepcially after watching the interview to see what the song is all about.
