Max Achatz of Country Jukebox – Jukebox Roundup says:
“The lady from the American Northwest has a broad background, a lot to tell and also many talents: the multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter HILARY SCOTT (with an “L” and not to be confused with Hillary Scott of the country band Lady A)”
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…”
JP’s Music Blog has reviewed Hilary Scott’s new album (release date June 25, 2021) and has this to say:
Ian D. Hall says: “… for the exceptional Hilary Scott, her latest E.P. is one in which the combination of her vision, working alongside one of the finest producers around, the ability to push beyond one’s comfort zone is of paramount success and a realisation that there are no boundaries in any artistic pursuit….A set of songs that are pleasing, controlled and adventurous, Hilary Scott has offered another side to the tale of her life, and it is bountiful.”

KG Music Press reports that Rootstime Belgium has reviewed Kaleidoscope, and they have this to say:
“The global corona pandemic has meant that we have all had to find an alternative solution to meaningfully spend the unexpected and far too long isolation period. It was a big problem for musicians that they could no longer do performances, which meant that they lost contact with their audience. On the other hand, the ample surplus of time also offered opportunities to intensively compose and come up with new songs and / or a new record.
Singer Hilary Scott – her real name is Hilary Renee Helm, but she chose the name Scott after the sudden death of her eponymous brother – is from Harstine Island, Washington, and she has used that abundance of free time to recreate five of her older songs. to be recorded in a remastered and remixed version that she collected on the EP “Kaleidoscope”, which will be released at the end of June 2021.
She has already recorded and released a dozen albums in recent years, so it was not that difficult to select five songs from the wide range of songs for this mini album. Hilary Scott is a classically trained instrumentalist who can play piano, keyboards, guitar and violin and with her sweet-voiced voice she also has no problem singing her self-composed songs. Producer Matt Wilder co-wrote four of the five songs and also played on guitars and piano for this record recording, while Gary Lunn on bass, Jerry Kimbrough on guitars and Lonnie Wilson on drums for additional instrumentation in the Nashville recording studio and Franklin, Tennessee have taken care of it.
The five songs that were revisited for this record are four songs composed for the first time in 2011 by Hilary Scott together with Matthew Wilder, John Goodwin and Angela Kaset for a songwriting project: “Just A Shame”, “Almost Home”, ” Too Much Is Not Enough “and” Free Country “. The fifth track is the song “And Just”, dating back to 2010, which is our favorite song from this album and which won several “awards” in 2010. Finally, a little fun fact: Hilary Scott writes her name with one “L” to make the distinction between her and the two “LL” -beared Hillary Scott, the singer with the American country band “Lady Antebellum” from Nashville.”
