Marilyn Scott wants to make a difference in the world we live in. The jazz vocalist has moving and inspirational music to offer and an important message is inside her compositions. Her new release Innocent of Nothing is a testament to her commitment to developing outstanding music that everyone will enjoy and along the way, the hope is that her messages will get through on her latest single “The Wilderness."

“Music has a way of touching people's lives and 'The Wilderness' is a voice for so many. May we grow as much as we cut down, may we clean as much as we pollute, and save the little that is left for the many who have never been to the wilderness." Marilyn speaks like a true poet and an individual that has experienced being one with nature and surrounding beauty. With that said, it is easy to see how that her principals in writing and personal beliefs comes flowing through in the music. Her style is lucid and articulate. Marilyn delivers her songs with a combination of singing and spoken word, which makes for a very distinctive and innovative kind of jazz.

“Marilyn is one of those artists who's comfortable singing in many diverse formats," says George Duke, the Innocent of Nothing producer and longtime Marilyn collaborator, “She constantly looks for ways to challenge and better herself as a singer and writer, and I find working with her a continuously evolving process of creativity."

There is no magic formula working here; Marilyn Scott's approach is simple and straightforward with a goal of reaching her audience in a way that many other artists cannot. We live in a complex world populated by social issues, war, political scandals, and people in Washington that have been sitting on their hands for decades ignoring the inevitable demise of the planet's habitats and overall health. If more artists like Marilyn Scott started sending a message through the ultimate communicator, music, then perhaps the awareness level would rise exponentially and something would finally happen to make a change for the better. We all can follow her lead, make a stand, and do something about our issues around the environment.
