Hobo On The Tracks (UK) – Terrific new review of Kaleidoscope!

Kaleidoscope

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 reviews “Kaleidoscope”

Kaleidoscope

JP’s Music Blog has reviewed Hilary Scott’s new album (release date June 25, 2021) and has this to say:

Multi-instrumentalist Hilary Scott is preparing the release of her new five-song EP titled “Kaleidoscope,” which be available on June 25th through Belltown Records. Scott has worked and performed alongside some of the greats, like Chuck Berry, Tanya Tucker, Bonnie Raitt and Little Feat. Hilary’s new release dates back to 2007, when she was invited to participate in a songwriting project with producer Matthew Wilder and songwriters John Goodwin and Angela Kaset. The results are featured on four of the songs on this new release, beginning with the stellar, laid-back Americana/pop groove of “Just A Shame,” as you will easily fall in love with Hilary Scott’s warming vocals. Scott’s backing band perfectly matches her vocal range on “Almost Home,” before delivering a funkier rhythm on the mainstream-driven rock of “Too Much Is Not Enough.” She wraps up her short new release with her own original-penned, country-style ballad “And Just,” along with the R&B vibe of “Free Country,” which finds Hilary Scott stepping out of her comfort zone.

Planet Country Italy mentions Hilary Scott’s “Kaleidoscope”

Planet Country Italy posts:

“Multi-instrumentalist Hilary Scott (with one ‘L’) has opened for Tanya Tucker, Chuck Berry, and Little Feat (joining them on stage for “Dixie Chicken”) and has also recorded with Bonnie Raitt’s musicians. Known for her soulful, bluesy, roots style, long-time fans may be surprised by her new record, Kaleidoscope. The newest release takes her into a pop-rock vein with 4 of the songs being co-written in Nashville during a songwriting project.  To quote the liner notes, “Kaleidoscope is a record that gathers together and honors the various colors of an eclectic musical landscape of different styles, genres, snapshots in time…”
