Just in! This terrific review of Kaleidoscope by Hobo On The Tracks (UK)
“Kaleidoscope is a sultry, soothing, incredibly sexy, exciting and eclectic album from Hilary Scott.
Beautifully produced by Matthew Wilder (who also adds into the mix backing vocals, guitars, keys and drum programming) the songs here soar and swoop, fly high and produce a powerful blend of Americana.
The four co-written songs with the group – Gary Lunn on bass, Jerry Kimbrough on guitars, and Lonnie Wilson on drums – and one song added that Scott penned on her own, And Just which won an award in the Festival Degli Autori songwriting competition in Sanremo, Italy really showcases Scott’s beautifully lush and sultry vocals. My favourite is the opener Just a Shame but that will change tomorrow as every track is just downright ace
And back to that word eclectic… Well the final track Free Country is a bona fide dance track straight out of the Beyoncé handbook.
Mind’s blown – what a great EP this is…”
