MuzicNotez writes “Each earthly tone helps settle the mind and soul.” Read the review.
Erik’s wide grooves, toothy tone, and tasty fills keep Sonia Dada’s now 12-piece juggernaut firmly on course in a polished yet intense live collection. Scott scoops a sollop of funk onto whatever he does, but he really lays it on thick when the feel says “New Orleans.”

Lorraine Devon Wilke wrote a nice HuffPo piece after our interview, covering a lot of hallowed ground. Read the interview with Erik Scott.
Bill Binkelman, too kind by half, wrote a great review of the album.
“Bass ace and multi-instrumentalist Erik Scott is one among a few select rock musicians who made a successful foray into the world of experimental jazz-rock and even borrows from what some dare to still call New Age. Erik Scott’s 2014 CD, And The Earth Bleeds is filled with such a wide range of instrumental and pop/rock vocal music, it will make your head spin.” – Robert Silverstein of MWE3.com Read the full interview!
This ultra-eclectic Chicago ensemble branches out far beyond it’s R&B-based, adult-contempo roots on Test Pattern, incorporating a craftily assembled soundscape of trancy eastern tones and catchy, soulful melodies.
Erik “Eski” Scott is the perfect artist for the group’s many moods, delivering dreamy medium-register drones, sweet fretless counter-melodies, down-and-dirty swamp boogie, plaintive double-stop ostinati, and everything else the band’s lushly arranged compositions call for.
Bill Leigh, Bass Player Sept. 2004
