Biography

Nominated in the best female category for the 2005 and 2007 Irish Meteor Awards, Ann Scott
has developed a reputation as an intense performer and firebrand songwriter.
Her debut album ‘Poor Horse’ was voted into the Hotpress musicians’ poll of Ireland’s top
100 albums ever, while her second album We’re Smiling has met with hearty critical acclaim
and a growing number of fresh converts.
Experimenting with unusual melodies, ideas and lyrics, Scott’s musical armoury consists of a
range of left-field guitars, newfangled synths, detuned mandolas and some quirky ideas on how

to go about playing them.
A prolific writer and busy performer, Scott has shared the stage with artists as diverse as
Blondie and Fairport Convention, slogging hard on the live circuit between Ireland and the UK.
As a vocalist she is in frequent demand, during the past year alone singing on records for
Kila, David Kitt and Mark Geary, with whom she dueted for movies such as Loggerheads and Steel
City.
In 2005 her electronic collaboration for the Earsugar Jukebox Label under the guise of
Cracklebox received a gracious welcome in the UK garnering plays and praise on XFM, BBC1
and BBC 6.
Scott’s trump card however lies undoubtedly in her own work and in her instantly identifiable
voice. With this her second album, her own independent label, and the growing acclaim of fans
and peers alike, Scott continues to redefine and challenge herself as one of Ireland’s most
original creative voices.
