Mike Davies of Folking.com reviewed Hilary Scott’s new album, “Don’t Call Me Angel”, and here’s a quote from the article. (Click on the link below to hear what else he has to say…)
“However, it’s the opening title track, a sort of emotional opposite to ‘Angel of the Morning’, that sets the seal on the album’s quality, a slow, brushed honky tonk snare brushed waltz…as she sings “I could never be your savior… just a thief doing time/When you think about me, think of me at my worst/The heroes, the martyrs, the saints, they all ended up cursed” as the number builds to a climax and a quiet farewell.
Quite simply, it’s one of the best old school Americana heartbreakers I’ve heard this year. The rest of the album’s pretty damn fine too.”

In his review of Don’t Call Me Angel, Ian D. Hall in Liverpool Sound and Vision writes:
“From the opening bars of the album title song, and through tracks such as Not Used To Being Used To’, ‘Make It Right’, Unlove Story’, Moon and Back’, ‘In Time’ and the fascinating cover of Prince’s ‘Kiss’, Ms. Scott glows, shimmers in the radiance of the endeavor…Don’t Call Me Angel is nothing short of a blessing to the ears, a rapture of outstanding story-telling and music.” You can read the full review here: Liverpool Sound and Vision: Don’t Call Me Angel
Ray Padgett in Cover Me writes:
“If the only “Kiss” cover you know is that Tom Jones one, get ready for something new, pussycat. Hilary Scott turns the Prince classic into a smoky blues ballad. On her upcoming album Don’t Call Me Angel (out October 12), Washington state singer-songwriter Hilary Scott turns the Prince classic into a smoky blues ballad. She starts out sounding like the Mississippi Delta before the song gradually builds into a blast of Bonnie Raitt soul. It’s unlike any “Kiss” cover we’ve ever heard, and one of the best Prince homages to come out since his passing.” You can read the full article here: Cover Me: Don’t Call Me Angel
Chris Spector in Midwest Record says this about Don’t Call Me Angel
“…Scott triumphs once again. With a slight change up into more blues than folk/country than before, Scott strips things down to get a bigger effect. With an all star combo bringing up the rear, her voice and pen are front and center showcasing her emotions and style to the fullest. Every inch a big time record, this soulful collection is so from the heart you can feel her pulse in the grooves. Killer stuff from one of the brightest lights in Americana.” You can read the review here: Midwest Record: Don’t Call Me Angel
