Sounds Of Hopscotch 2013 #22: Torres

Hard as it may be to believe, it's once again time for Hopscotch. One of my favorite festival happenings, Hopscotch is a mere hop, skip, and a jump or two from the DC metro in lovely Raleigh, North Carolina. For the past few years they've been reeling in some seriously impressive lineups, and this year looks to be no different. Thanks to scheduling conflicts, I won't be heading down for this year's sonic extravaganza, but (not at all surprisingly) I've got recommendations on who to check out if you're heading to the fest.

Listening to Torres, it's pretty hard to believe this is music made by a 22-year old. Mackenzie Scott, denizen of Nashville (yes, again with Nashville), writes beautiful, frank songs of innocence and experience with heaping helpings of reality, anchored by her no nonsense, songbird shown the wicked ways of the world vocals.
