Singer songwriter Scarlette, whose new album Attack Of The 6 Ft Woman is due to be released on May 6th 2016, has announced details of a unique tour to promote its release. Scarlette, who is a SEN (Special Education Needs) music teacher by day and a guitar-toting Radio 2 play-listed singer/songwriter by night, will be performing in a series of traditional town and city venues in the evening and appearing at SEN schools in the corresponding towns and cities during daylight hours.
Scarlette comments: “This is a unique opportunity to work together with young people to produce something truly special. The young people we work with during these daytime sessions will go on a journey and it will be a privilege to share the journey with them. When these young people are supported, allowed to have a go rather than being told “no” or “you can’t”, there’s no telling how far they can go. The sessions will be a School Of Rock taster and we will be recording the young people to create a nationwide Scarlette choir to go on my latest record.”
To coincide with the tour Scarlette’s new single ‘Helena’ will be release on March 25th. Gone is the ‘Fever’ from her name as she kicks off the year with new songs, new shoes, and a new passion for life. Her last album launched her career with two Radio 2 playlisted singles ‘Crash and Burn’ and ‘Elated’. Since then she’s sold out the Borderline and St Pancras Church, toured the US, and played festivals around Europe.
