PREMIERE: Scarlet Baxter – ‘Skydive’


Scarlet Baxter has won over tastemaker on Radio and Press, both here in the UK and in the U.S with her ‘unmistakable velvet tones’, which continue to soar her growing reputation.

She has had a wealth of great reviews, plus strong support from the BBC, along side various regional stations up and down the country who have fallen in love with her voice and vibrant personality. She has built a consistent stream of Fans in the U.S  and on her home turf. Scarlet and Dom(Guitarist/Co-Songwriter) have played hundreds of gigs across the UK, including massive outdoor festival appearances at Party at the Palace and The Westend Festival. Scarlet has supported some big artists which include, Chic, Bombay Bicycle Club, Hot Chip and various others.

Scarlet has an ongoing writing partnership with the highly acclaimed writer/producer Jud Mahoney(Michael Jackson/Usher/Dolly Parton). Jud said about Scarlet: “It’s not everyday that someone walks into your studio and leaves you blown away by the quality of a natural vocalist”. He also expanded by saying: “Scarlet is up there with the best singers I have ever had the pleasure to work with, and I have worked with my fair share of greats.

Scarlet and Dom took it upon themselves to embark on an around the world journey playing shows in many different countries. They performed in a variety of different situations which included intimate gigs, playing on ships, bars/restaurants, playing at party’s, or even just playing their songs to anyone who would listen. In the quest to hone their craft, they used their journey and experiences as a channel to write new songs with this newfound creative landscape. As a result of this they are ready to make the best record they can, and the end product is truly beautiful.

It was during this road of discovery that Scarlet expanded her musical direction. Scarlet said: “I always had a sub conscious love of some of the country music greats such as Shania Twain. With the emergence of new country and songwriters in the UK , It seemed like a natural step to create a song such as ‘Skydive’. I have always loved RnB music and acoustic stripped back records so we have brought a little of these things to our twist on new country and feel we have made a truly great record. I’m so proud of this record and can’t wait to let everyone hear it!”

Scarlet is adding the finishing touches to her album due for release early 2018 and will be playing shows up and down the UK this autumn and winter. The first tasters of the record is now on all Scarlets social media. And the outcome is stunning. Tracks such as ‘Next time around’ and ‘Skydive’ show that Scarlets amazing vocals and heart felt emotion fit perfectly into this genre and will make her stand out among this growing scene.

Scarlet said: “I’m so excited by they way they have turned out and I can’t wait to see what the fans who have followed me to this point think of this new direction. I was a tad nervous about what the fans who have followed and supported me would think, but I have gone with my heart and followed it for this record. Thankfully the fans have absolutely loved the first few tracks. We will now build on this through the rest of the year.” The record still has what I do naturally but just in a more distinct style of writing and production. I can’t wait to tour with these songs and I have already had great early reviews in the music scene for the tastemakers we sent the tracks to. I’m the most determined and excited I have ever been in all my time making music. I now can’t wait to get out there and play to as many people as we can and hope they join us on our new exciting journey”.
