SCOUT PARÉ-PHILLIPS 'Heed The Call'
Regular price €25,00
SCOUT PARÉ-PHILLIPS’ recent recognition as a young and talented visual artist based in Brooklyn, NY – as displayed in her accomplished portfolios – shows only a small portal into the creative road that SCOUT has chosen to go down. SCOUT’s musical foray started with the Baltimore-based post-punk/country act, The Sterling Sisters. SCOUTS’s operatically trained soprano voice combined with her seemingly effortless proficiency with instruments such as the autoharp and baritone guitar create her own unique hybrid of old-time folk storytelling and modern illusionary contrast. Influenced by acoustic legends such as Sibylle Baier and Leonard Cohen, the vocal conviction of Roy Orbison, and still holding poetic court with players like Rowland S. Howard, Nick Cave and Diamanda Galas, SCOUT PARÉ-PHILLIPS’ songwriting lands in the middle of some very intriguing yet complex influences. Her recent autobiographical songs have been collected into her debut album entitled 'Heed the Call'. Crashing crescendos of guitar, percussively strummed autoharp and an array of both acoustic and electronic sculptures by SCOUT PARÉ-PHILLIPS with accompaniment by SCOUT’s beloved musical collaborator, Emil Bognar-Nasdor (Dawn of Humans, Røsenkopf), populate her LP. SCOUT’s torch songs of pure, raw emotional outpouring compliment the rich timbre of her trained voice, which breathes a new life into the contemporary idea of a “folk singer”. Her narrative about two lovers being torn apart and brought back together over many years has formed a new genre within acoustic music’s storytelling tradition.
