Brand new UK soul star set for debut single release ‘Backsliding’

Scarlet Baxter looks to break through with August 18th single release

A London based artist with a fiercely independent streak, Scarlet Baxter is a female singer-songwriter who has been described as ‘Lauren Hill meets Jimi Hendrix’. A killer combination of stellar vocals and soulful guitar backing thanks to co-writer Dominic Ireland, Scarlet Baxter is an artist with a genuine chance of breaking through having turned the heads of some the industry’s top names.

With a new EP ‘Stuck’ due for release soon, lead single ‘Backsliding’ is a classy introduction to Scarlet’s powerful sound. Having worked on the EP with producers including John McLaughlin (known as ‘The Hit Man’ thanks to previous successes), Jud Mahoney (Michael Jackson, Dolly Parton, Chris Brown, Usher, Mariah Carey) and Natalie DeLucia (Britney Spears), this is music not only well written but also superbly captured by a team of industry heavyweights.

Scarlet Baxter is no stranger to the spotlight since winning performance contests as young as 14 years of age. Later, she went through years of musical theatre training and, although the musical theatre is not reflected in her earthy style, she did learn the art of performance and gain confidence in her own ability.

More recently, her star has continued to rise thanks to numerous support slots with Lester Clayton as well as playing Barfly, Camden with Stax Revue. It’s little wonder her music has featured on London’s BBC Introducing with Gavin Crowley, with The Stage and Television Today also marking the talented songwriter as ‘One to Watch’.

Canadian rock band, These Raven Skies, release new single ‘No Need to Worry’ ft. Jeff Martin

Self-titled album to follow August 1st

After signing an international distribution deal and getting signed to Blackstream Records, These Raven Skies created their own record label which will see the release of their debut self-titled album out August 1st.

First release, ‘No Need to Worry’, is an infectious rock track, filled with intricate guitar riffs and powerful, anthemic vocals. This track is inspired by a real-life experience where the band were involved in a bar fight to defend two female fans from some aggressive male regulars. In typical rock ‘n’ roll style, chairs were thrown, knives were brandished but fortunately the band triumphed!

Formerly known as Dreams of Reason, These Raven Skies changed their name to mark a change in musical direction and maturity. This was encouraged by The Tea Party’s front man, Jeff Martin, who took the band’s demos and applied his own creative flare, adding eclectic world music elements and arrangements to develop an intriguing classic rock flavour. Not afraid to write a record with no restraints and consideration for convention, These Raven Skies took influences from the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Tea Party, Led Zeppelin, and Soundgarden.

Having supported established bands such as Korn, Billy Talent, Flux Pavillion and Buckcherry, it is no surprise they are getting recognition for their wealth of talent and energetic live performances. These successes have seen them headline major hometown venues such as The Republik! as well as playing local Canadian festivals.

After experiencing various personal tragedies, the band channelled their emotions and passion into their music allowing them to create a great rock album which is perfect for any rock ‘n’ roll fan.
