less a music industry legend than Jerry Wexler, co-founder
of Atlantic Records, called E.C. Scott "one honest-to-God
soul singer." High praise indeed from the man who
produced Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, and Wilson Pickett!
Blues and R&B diva E.C. Scott possesses a warm,
inviting voice and a delivery that can be smooth and
sultry one minute and sassy and sexy the next. She can
mesmerize a crowd down to a whisper or rock them into
a loud frenzy."
"Stereo Review called E.C.'s songwriting "Brass
tacks poetry that is witty, often ribald, sometimes
sweet, and always perceptive." ~ www.blindpigrecords.com
Ray Band: "Lonesome Rider"
Don Ray and his cast of talented band mates he has transposed
their influence in a very subtle way as well and is walking
the same path, with some finely crafted and performed
songs. I wonder if this music will be too sophisticated
for many southern rock fans with its influences that sounded
to me like T-Bone Walker, George Benson, The Allman Brothers
Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Delbert McClinton. But influences
are just that, they help mould the sound that is the Don
Ray Band, the subtle influences merge to form what is
a fine CD by an excellent band."
