US BOUND: Scarlette Fever

Scarlette Fever

Our friends at IMC introduce us to another amazing singer-songwriter – Scarlette Fever.

Have you met the Scarlette woman yet? Scarlette Fever, to be precise. A musician who was born to pour out her soul in music. Whether you’re already a fan or newly aware, it’s time to check out one gifted British artist in the songwriting form of her life.

Acclaimed in the UK media from the tabloid pop pages to the teen press, from Popjustice to a brace of prestigious appearances on the BBC Radio 2 playlist, Scarlette has been expanding her horizons since she was last on record. Her eclectic and infectious music, full of bold hooks and barefaced emotions, is all the better for it.

Scarlette is allowing us to give you a song for the next week.  Enjoy!
