Fast Five: Scarlette Fever



When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

I suppose that depends on how you define making music. I guess my obsession with singing and lyrics began when I received a karaoke machine for my 7th birthday, but I didn’t actually begin to write music until I was 19 or 20.

How would you describe your music?

I hate this question lol!! It’s impossible to answer without sounding artsy fartsy…! So apologies but you did ask…

I can’t define my music in terms of genre or really describe it very well.. My music comes from the heart and is completely about the present moment for whoever I’m working with, as well as myself, so it’s ever-changing and developing – just like the weather in that respect I guess.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

Wow that’s a broad question! I could literally bore you to tears in trying to answer that one so I’ll try and stick to the headlines!

Since Medication Time I have been on the most incredible journey; writing, writing and more writing… LA x5, the Viper Room and recording with the guy who produced Dusty. Producing and co-producing, gigging, falling out of and in love and quitting smoking… Big stuff.

Over the coming months, a witch’s birthday and a headlining gig at the borderline.. London; come on if you think you’re hard enough.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

Stevie Wonder, Sarah Mclachlan, Pink, Linda Perry, Annie Lennox, Rufus Wainright, Gladys Knight, Celine, Tina…

Take your pick, I’ve got enough loving for them all.. Why? Because they’re all bloody amazing!!!

Oh and my mum wants me to dance with Matthew Cutler because she loves him.

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

Now come on…! How can I possibly just pick 1 album? I have to cheat and say my iPod… If I travel anywhere I go with my iPod and headphones.
