Bassist Erik Scott, best known for his work with Sonia Dada, Alice Cooper, and Flo & Eddie, has released a solo album, Other Planets.
Other Planets was recorded while Sonia Dada was taking a break, after a 16-year run. This is Erik’s first solo release.
“I found myself alone in the studio with an active imagination, some basses, and a keyboard,” Erik shares. “With no band, no singers, and no pre-dispositions, I could pretty much wander wherever the musical muse took me.”
Erik’s email exchanges with me have been priceless… as witty as any I’ve read in a long time. Among my favorite quotes from him about this release:
“While it could certainly be said that I have partaken in, and incited, my fair share of musical mayhem, raising a ruckus in many venues… I have take a break from the chaos with this CD, and some musical segments have even been described as… well, (gasp) tranquil… serene. Well, there you go… I did find the blend of steel guitar, interstellar strings and melodic bass to be a bit seductive. Maybe you too.”
