Park Hyatt Saigon Welcomes Back Hilary Scott
Park Hyatt Saigon is welcoming back Hilary Scott from Missouri, USA, who will provide live entertainment in the Park Lounge every evening, except Tuesdays, from now until 10 October 2009.
Raised on piano, violin, voice and guitar, this talented singer-songwriter experiments with different sounds, instruments and styles to create unique audio artwork. Said by some to exude the perfect mixture of the melodies in her musical performances, Hilary presents a fresh repertoire. Her music blends blues, folk-rock and classical influences into a pleasurable enigma. Her musical influences and inspirations are varied and appeals to a wide audience. And yet, her sound appeals to an extremely large audience as people seem drawn by her unique style and music.
Hilary received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Whitman College and minored in music education with a focus on vocal performance. Since 2003, she has been president and owner of her own corporation, Hilary Scott, Inc., and co-produced six albums, including Road To Hope; The Floating World; Hypothermia; Come In, Come In: Live!; Out of the Wilderness and The Best of Hilary Scott Live. Among many music- related honours and achievements, Scott was the first woman to be featured on the cover of Inside Columbia Magazine in December 2005, and was asked by Keith Colley (a Top Ten hit songwriter) to write the theme for his America’s Song project and recorded the song in Los Angeles.
Hilary Scott’s voice has been described as “amazing”, “powerful”, “extraordinary” and with “the purity and sweetness of the young Judy Collins and Joan Baez”, and she is equally at home on the keyboard and playing guitar and violin.
Hilary tours as a solo artist in Asia, having performed extended engagements at the prestigious Paris Lounge in the five-star Grand Hyatt in Seoul, South Korea, and the five-star Park Hyatt Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. She recently toured the midwest with Wes Wingate for the release of their album, Consonance, which is already acclaimed by fans! Hilary and the Hilary Scott Band perform in the Midwest. Hilary and her band have opened for acts such as Little Feat, Tanya Tucker, Jonatha Brook and Beth Orton.
Hilary’s fiery performances offer a wide variety of music selections and original compositions, ranging from jazz standards and soulful classics to contemporary pop songs. So, treat yourself to the colours and sounds of this talented performer in the cosy, relaxing atmosphere of Park Lounge.
