Scarlette Fever Spreads West: UK Rocker Scarlette to Join 2015 Passport Approved West Coast USA Tour in Feb and March

Since emerging in 2011, the UK’s Scarlette has built a solid live following via support tours with Caro Emerald, Mike & The Mechanics, and Roachford. 

Scarlette has scored consecutive BBC Radio 2 playlists for her singles “Crash & Burn” and “Elated.” “We have fluffy pop princesses aplenty, so it’s about time we had a proper rock chick,” cooed Star Magazine of Scarlette. Positive reviews have also appeared in the Daily Mirror, Daily Star, Music Week, NME and Popjustice.

Scarlette’s recently announced slot on the Passport Approved West Coast USA Tour will not be her first venture to the Pacific. She has performed multiple times at the Hard Rock CafĂ© in Hollywood and the legendary Viper Room on the Sunset Strip, resulting in her 2013 EP Single White Female.

That record was produced by acclaimed collaborators Steve Lironi (Hanson, Bon Jovi), Tommy Faragher (Dusty Springfield, Al Green), Pete Craigie (Bellowhead, Seth Lakeman), and Ash Howes (Texas, Ellie Goulding).

Scarlette recently released a stunning cover of Erasure’s classic “A Little Respect,” in celebration of the legalization of same-sex marriage – a momentous occasion close to Scarlette’s heart since she came out in 2014.

Scarlette has since been writing and recording her new album, Attack of the 6ft Woman. The record is co-produced by Scarlette and Julian Emery (Lissie) and Paul Simm (Neneh Cherry,) as well as by Cenzo Townshend (Snow Patrol, Florence and The Machine) and Pete Craigie as remixers.

More information on Scarlette is available on her official site.
