About Alexandra Scott:

For Alexandra Scott, singing isn’t just about making pretty sounds. To her it’s a deeply spiritual process, about sharing love and healing. “When I’m singing and playing, I want that to be an offering,” she says. “It’s not about standing up there and saying, ‘This is about me.’ It should be more about giving something to people.”

She’s a beloved artist at home in New Orleans, where her 2014 album, I Love You So Much Always, firmed up the support she’s had there all along. “Gas Station Lover” became a favorite on local station WWOZ and was nominated for Song of the Year at OffBeat magazine’s Best of the Beat Awards. Alison Fenterstock of the Times Picayune noted that she “has an intuitive poetic gift for expressing how things can be tragic, absurd and achingly beautiful all at once. Her songs…sneak up to deliver an unexpected emotional kick and a peek into her strange, lovely, big-hearted mind.” Adds Alex Rawls of the New Orleans Advocate, “Theres nothing theatrical in her singing, but her sadness sounds earned, her joy is felt, her heartbreak is painful, and much of it is modulated by humorgallows, antic, or otherwise.”

Local fans have seen Alexandra perform in any number of contexts, whether honing her own material at solo shows, collaborating with kindred spirits, being part of the female singers’ collective the New Orleans Nightingales or playing cover-themed shows for the fun of it. But even in a city full of amazing players, the unearthly beauty of her material stands out. “I play underground rock, a type of country/folk that I call ‘dream-a-billy’ for lack of a better word,” she says. “I like to turn out slow, simple dance songs for long lonely nights to come.”
