Review by Luisa Mercier
I had the pleasure to appreciate Scout Paré-Philips in The Sterling Sisters album “Hale” where she backed the male vocalist. Therefore I was really glad to have the chance to review her solo work “Fields of Ash”. It is a 7”with only two tracks, but very remarkable.
There is only her voice and an acoustic guitars, but her unique tone will make you shiver. Only two elements and a true journey. The style is quite similar to those of her band, maybe more acoustic and less dark, but I think that her voice itself carries a melancholy that I rarely found in other female singers. If you do not know her, please check “Fields of Ash” out or The Sterling Sisters, you will be enchanted.
