"Composer/producer/bassist Erik Scott, who cut his teeth with rock acts such as Alice Cooper and Sonia Dada, as well as a slew of session work, has taken the electric bass guitar and reinvented it in a way that is refreshingly original, startlingly innovative, and flat out fantastic to hear. This is emotionally rich, warm music...crisscrossing between genres with tasteful audacity.
Erik combines steel guitar, medieval violin (the Veille), fretless bass, flute and English whistle with other unusual instrumental combinations into a space-age swamp groove…haunting and evocative. A singular achievement of combining elements into a stew that is both wholly accessible and boldly adventurous." - Bill Binkelman, Wind and Wire, 2014

Spirits debuted as #1 on the ZMR Radio Chart Dec 2015, and hung in at #3 and #11 for January and February 2016. Thanks to all the show producers, DJs, listeners, and everybody at ZMR who expressed their appreciation for the music.
Mr Keith “MuzicMan”Hannaleck, the founder of New Age Music Reviews and a highly respected reviewer, has listened to “Spirits” and rewarded me with his 5 Star rating…thank you “MuzicMan”.
