Berenice Scott bewitches with piano-pop single ‘Walls Cave in’

Track taken from POLARITY album out June 8th

Born in Paris, France but now based in London, Berenice Scott is the talented product of a truly bohemian upbringing. After travelling the world with artistic parents – a French mother and British father – drinking in a host of musical influences to inform her own writing, her chamber-pop songs are a thoughtful mix of wistfulness and a quiet power.

A professional session musician specialising in the commercial pop world, her independent, improvisational spirit grew from early days as a pianist. Piano teachers would grow frustrated with her penchant for playing around with structures and learning by ear as opposed to reading music by sight, but in reality Berenice was finding her own way, by feel for the music as opposed to prescribed routes and notes.

With a songwriting style driven by a love of piano, Berenice Scott’s album ‘Polarity’ consistently provides excellent tracks from top to tail, including stunning singles such as ‘Walls Cave In’ – a beautifully building ballad which calls to mind the blended subtleties and pop sensibilities of Sarah McLachlan  and Vanessa Carlton:

The album ‘Polarity’ is a gorgeous collection, created from a range of experiences, lyrically and musically matched to the emotions felt by Berenice Scott throughout her life. It’s a life which has evolved from growing up in a world of artistic genius, her parents counting Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood as their friends and contemporaries and sharing holidays with icons such as Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall.

It was destined that Berenice would follow a creative path, and did so with her innate musical talent. It’s a path which has seen her support Pink’s funhouse tour in a previous role as keys player for the band Raygun, as well as taking on support slots for Paul Weller and The Script.

And now, as a solo artist, Berenice Scott continues to beguile with her songs, both in her studio recordings and live on stage.

For fans who really want to get to know Berenice Scott, check out her YouTube channel for an informal video series called ‘The Breakfast Club Sessions’, in which acoustic sessions are captured raw and without the pomp and pressure of the spotlight.

‘Walls Cave In’ will be available on May 25th, followed by album ‘Polarity’ which will be available on June 8th.
