In our exclusive interview with Jess, we talk about their latest album and their upcoming tour.
Scarlet Baxter has already won over audiences and critics with her distinctive velvety tones and lyrical intelligence, but even her latest single “Skydive” will prove a revelation to even her most hard core of fans. Having supported a wealth of the world’s finest talent, from Chic to Bombay Bicycle Club and Hot Chip, the versatility of Baxter’s craft has always been evident to those who have played close attention. It is due the eclectic nature of her work to date that Scarlet has earned herself rave reviews and loyal support from the BBC and regional stations up and down the country.
