Octobers featured guest goes to “Scarlett and the Fever”
A few months back wile covering a car show for a magazine I shoot for,I had the honor of meeting Scarlett. I couldn’t help but notice the amazing music as she and her band performed a few songs. After she was done signing I introduced myself, we chatted and did some photoshoots with a couple of cars. So glad I had the opportunity of meeting such a cool person. Here’s some info on how she got started in music and continues to perform at many events. Thank you Scarlett for taking the time to share with us how you got started in music.
A gifted singer, songwriter, pianist, dancer, choreographer, and music educator, Scarlett Brais is an artist of many talents and skills. Born into an artistic family, she began her music and performance studies when she was just five years old. “I’ve always had this creative calling within me…I remember as a toddler, watching popular performers like Michael Jackson on television and thinking to myself ‘Hey, that’s what I want to do!’ It’s been my biggest dream ever since.”
A classically trained pianist and vocalist, Scarlett is an active performer in the Los Angeles and Orange County music scenes and is well respected by musicians and fans alike. She graduated with high honors from Cal State Long Beach in 2010, receiving a music degree in Vocal Performance. She has toured and performed internationally in Mexico, Italy and several parts of central Europe.
Scarlett is a diverse musician, with experience in musical theater, opera, jazz, pop and reggae music styles. “Having a classical foundation in music has prepared me to be a flexible musician with a varied skill set that I can adjust to any style.”
Scarlett is the lead singer/songwriter for a popular LA based Soul Reggae Fusion band called Scarlett And The Fever. The band blends soul, reggae and ska music together for a unique, sophisticated sound that is original, sexy and fun. The band, established in January 2014, has seen great success and continues to grow in popularity and musicality. Their exciting debut full length album, Soul Ready, is set to release by the end of this year. “My songs tell stories – paint pictures and evoke emotion. I have a lot to say and my music gives me the freedom to say it.”
