Featured Project:  Alexandra Scott


We are extremely excited to announce a new partnership with Alexandra Scott.  According to Paul Sanchez, "Alexandra's songs are sad and literate and hopefully hopeless." And she has really captured the essence of her New Orleans experience in her own words below.


"New Orleans is the place to which I was always coming. I've been fascinated with it since I was a child. As a kid, I'd cook red beans and rice, and when I was in college I used to order coffee from Cafe du Monde. My mom took me to hear a lot of zydeco when I was very young; I was a big Beausoleil fan. Right before graduating from college I took a trip here with my best friend and went to the Saturn Bar. The guy I was seeing at the time had told me it was the coolest bar in the world. Our taxi driver didn't want to take us there; he said it was no place for two young girls, but I loved it regardless.Read more of Alexandra's story or contribute to the cause...
