Jen Mulson of the Colorado Springs Gazette posted an article today about Hilary Scott, in advance of Hilary Scott’s appearance at the Zodiac Venue tomorrow night.
Jen writes, “…Singer-songwriter Hilary Scott has done something many musicians would pawn their beloved guitar for – turned her passion into a full-time career…In the 15 years since the Washington-based performer graduated from college, she’s traveled the world, released 10 albums and met a husband, a percussionist, along the way. Now the two tour and perform as a duo.
