Description
The second LP from the elusive Brooklyn-based chanteuse SCOUT PARE-PHILLIPS. Crashing crescendos of guitar, autoharp, cello and keyboards, combined with acoustic and electronic percussion by longtime musical collaborator, EMIL BOGNAR-NASDOR (DAWN OF HUMANS, ROSENKOPF), provide a lush backdrop befitting Scout’s torch songs, complimenting the rich timbre of her classically-trained voice. A photographer, filmmaker, model, songwriter and vocalist, Scout’s solo career evolved from her illustrious foundation as a trained opera singer as well as songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and backing balladeer for the Baltimore based, post-punk/country act, THE STERLING SISTERS. Scout’s force-of-nature quality and vocal control bring to mind a modern-day Joni Mitchell. Her style stems from professional training combined with a natural ear and affinity for unique and alternative instrumentation. Using autoharp and baritone guitar, Scout’s songs harken a modern, dark yet feminine version of some of history’ s most revered acoustic legends, such as Leonard Cohen and Sibylle Baier, as well as prolific and poetic lyricists like Nick Cave, Rowland S. Howard and Diamanda Galas.
