Alison Scott

Alison Scott is the strongest voice to come out of Minneapolis in many years, and her soulful, organic sound has quietly built a very large and loyal following.

See her first performance in Austin at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 5 at the Historic Paramount Theatre.

Working with multi-platinum guitarist/ producer Kevin Bowe (Paul Westerberg, Etta James, Jonny Lang), drummer Peter Anderson (Polara, Honeydogs), bassist Steve Price (Rex Daisy) and keyboardist James Tyler O’Neill,  Alison is making the kind of soul music that music fans love.

She has become one of the most popular live acts in Minneapolis, selling out the Dakota Jazz Club more than a dozen shows in a row. Her releases have sold more than 10,000 units and counting, her new album “Hiding Under The Covers, Vol. 2” was released in June and features collaborations with Communist Daughter and Chris Koza.

The Austin Area Commission for the Arts is fortunate to be presenting Alison through an Arts Tour Minnesota Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board.

This was made possible through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the state’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

This money was made available from the votes of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008. Thank you Minnesota voters for supporting the Arts.

This tour will allow Alison to play 7 theater shows in greater Minnesota, supporting her mission to bring soul music to the people.

The band will be playing a variety of songs including Alison’s two most recent releases “Chinese Whispers”, and “Hiding Under the Covers, Vol. 2.” Tickets are $15 general admission, $5 students, $13 for Paramount Theatre members.

All door tickets are $2 more. To order tickets or to check out some of Alison’s music visit
