Over the course of four stunning and original albums, Ann Scott has been steadily establishing herself as one of the most courageous songwriters on the Irish scene.
Her latest studio offering, Venus to the Sky, comprises ten songs recorded over several instalments between Chicago’s Electrical Audio and Sun Studios in Dublin. Co-produced with Karl Odlum and featuring a heavyweight indie squad (Dave Hingerty, Kim Porcelli, Katherine Atkinson, Gemma Hayes and Katell Keineg), the album received favourable reviews and airplay in Irish and UK media. Venus to the Sky is available from bandcamp, iTunes and select stores in Ireland.
Twice nominated in the best female category for the Irish Meteor Awards, Ann Scott has carved her own niche as an independent and firebrand songwriter. Her debut album Poor Horse was voted into the Hotpress musicians’ poll of Ireland’s top 100 albums, while follow ups, We’re Smiling and Flo have received hearty critical acclaim and a growing number of converts, with Tony Clayton Lea including We’re Smiling in his 2011 novel of ‘101 Irish Albums You Must Hear Before You Die’
