Much of the commentary about Darrell Scott's career has focused on the songs he's written that have been recorded by famous names and voices those known in music industry parlance as "artists." But then there's the actual word artist, whose definition has nothing to do with radio hits and red carpets. We refer of course to those who create artifacts of aesthetic and intellectual contemplation and wonder, built from experience, skill, reflection and emotional intent. That's an artist. And that, at the end of the day, is Darrell Scott.
Widely respected throughout the songwriting community, Scott has worked with numerous world-renowned musicians, including Steve Earle, Joan Baez, Guy Clark and Jimmie Dale Gilmore. Scott has also received two Grammy award nominations, including one for "Best Country Song" for his Dixie Chicks hit "Long Time Gone." Additionally, as part of the Bluegrass Dukes, Scott performed on Steve Earle's "Townes," which received a 2010 Grammy for "Best Contemporary Folk Album." In 2007, Scott was awarded "Song of the Year" at the prestigious Americana Music Association Honors & Awards ceremony held at the Ryman Auditorium for his song "Hank Williams' Ghost." Scott has also been honored as ASCAP's "Songwriter of the Year."
Darrell Scott has been tapped to join Robert Plant's new project, Band of Joy. The super group, which includes Plant and vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Scott alongside Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller, Byron House and Marco Giovino, will embark on a series of tour dates this summer. An album featuring this line-up will be released later this year on Rounder Records.
Preceding these tour dates, Full Light Records (via Thirty Tigers) will release a special two-disc set from Scott entitled "A Crooked Road," on May 25th. This is Scott's eighth solo album and follows his critically acclaimed 2008 release "Modern Hymns," which the Boston Globe declared as "soaring" and "poignant." Scott has consistently received praise from critics and fellow musicians alike USA Today described his 2006 release "The Invisible Man" as "brilliantly clever", while legendary artist Robert Plant asserts of Scott "A beautiful voice adrift in heartfelt song."
Recorded primarily at Scott's home studio in Nashville, the double album features 21 originally written tracks. In addition to penning each song, Scott played all of the instruments on the record, including guitar, mandolin, lap steel, keyboard, drums, bass, harp and cello. Of the project Scott says, "I set out to do two things with this record. First, to play and sing all the music and, secondly, to collect these songs that speak to this crooked road that I, only recently, recognized as being a crooked road!"
Darrell Scott's new song "Colorado" from his brand new double-CD "Crooked Road", is available as a free download here: www.darrellscott.com/colorado <http://www.darrellscott.com/colorado>
"I have always been drawn to Colorado - from the first starry night when I was 16 on the top of my Dad's motor home in the Rockies where I understood the words 'milky way' to my last trip to Boulder two weeks ago - I always expect magic; I always receive magic from Colorado." Darrell Scott
