Evolution Promotion congratulates our client, Erik Scott, on climbing all the way to the top of radio charts with his new album, “In The Company of Clouds”. The album reached #1 on the Zone Music Reporter Charts in December and racked up excellent feedback from the media for its unique qualities.
Erik Scott started as a bass guitar player, producer, and songwriter in the 70’s, playing bass for everyone from Flo & Eddie to Alice Cooper in the early 1980s, for whom he also produced. In the 1990s he was one of the founding members of Sonia Dada, which reached the number one position on the Australian music charts with their debut album. Scott was also the co-writer of the song Father, Father, which was the title track for the Pops Staples‘ album of the same name, winner of the 1994 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album.
In 2008 he became a solo artist as well, with his debut album Other Planets. His second solo album And The Earth Bleeds was released in 2014. His latest release “In The Company of Clouds” utilizes pedal steel guitar, bongo and wordless choirs to create a sound so vibey, so pretty and comforting, it is unlike anything that’s come across our desks before. As the Echoes Radio Program honcho, John Diliberto put it: “makes country go cosmic” .
Erik Scott’s “In The Company of Clouds” was Echoes CD of the Month in November of 2016.
