'Flowers On Mars' is an exciting, limited-edition vinyl release. Only 500 albums will be sold. Each album is numbered and includes a digital download card in addition to the vinyl album. Aarik Danielsen of the Columbia Daily Tribune, has this to say about 'Flowers On Mars'... "Flowers on Mars" not only displays the creative exchange between Scott and Gennaro but presents a narrative on love and loss and loving again. Rather than hold the songs back for a later LP, Scott sensed the tracks belonged together and were "screaming to be recorded," she said. In just four moves, she takes the listener on a journey "from rejection of love, to a cry for understanding and a desire to be forgiven, to confidently pursuing love, to accepting the beauty and complication that is a relationship," she said. Similarly, the record allows for big, buoyant moments, as well as intricate, intense sounds. "Get Your Love" features a full-size sound Scott is clearly proud of; the cut weds a twinkling, tinkling toy piano melody to a propulsive drumbeat that leads the song to drink from soulful streams. With it's mandolin countermelodies and churning rhythms, "Help" leans to the folk side of pop. The title cut grows from a lovely, lilting intro, boasting a rich hook, which Scott lays over a piano-driven promenade. "Sacrifice" captures an unfettered sound, with Scott moving around syllables with grace and ease, even yodeling, all while the soundtrack swells and culminates in spry, driving rhythms. All the material is unified by Scott's vocals, which grow richer and lovelier as time passes. She said she continues "to discover" and "extend" her lower range, a discovery displayed to great effect and delight here. She tamps more soul and character into a single note or run than most, and "Flowers on Mars" is yet another declaration of her ability.' Hilary Scott tours nationally and internationally as a singer-songwriter, presenting audiences with an ever-changing blend of sounds in her performances as a singer-songwriter, pianist, guitarist and violinist. In 2010 she added award-winning songwriter to her list of accolades. Italian producer Euro Ferrari (Bjork, Sting, Pavarotti) says, '...Hilary Scott writes and sings in a way that creates a fascinating and intimate world, and it is enough for her to utilize only a whisper to raise deep emotions in the listener. Her voice is absolutely extraordinary in it's emotional greatness...to listen to Hilary Scott live is as though to 'hear' America, that America many of us dreamed of us as children, that brings to mind Woodstock, Joan Baez, Marilyn Monroe, John Kennedy, etc...Hilary is ready...for the big crowds, the big stage, or the little theater, for the young or the less young; it would be difficult for her pop/country style not to enter deep into the heart, in every way.' After winning the international section of the Festival Degli Autori singer-songwriter competition in Sanremo, Italy 2010, Hilary's winning song 'And Just' was produced by Euro Ferrari, and released as a single in 2011. Hilary Scott's music is transmuted according to the instrumentation and additional musicians involved, and she has performed with some fabulous artists in the decade in which she has been a touring and recording artist. Through a solo career that started in the songwriting boot camp of the Seattle music scene in 2000, to a seven-year stint with the Hilary Scott Band in the Midwest, Scott's music has been classified as roots, Americana, folk-rock, indie-rock, pop and even blues. She has shared the stage with artists ranging from Europe's hit sensation Cock Robin to country legend Tanya Tucker, jam-band long-timers Little Feat, UK star Beth Orton and Chuck Berry, to name a few. Highlights of Scott's career to-date include a publishing deal with Nashville producer Matthew Wilder, consecutive annual wins as 'Best Local Artist' by readers of Inside Columbia Magazine, inclusion in the prestigious Missouri Arts Council Touring Performers Roster & Mid-America Arts Alliance Regional Touring Program, domestic representation by Charism
