Artist's gear


Matt Scarlet: has been actively involved in rock music in the south of England for the past 10 years or so. Starting out playing with punk band Scissorhands, Matt built up his resume by gigging regularly in London, including shows and collaborations with musicians who would go on to form hugely successful bands such as Scouting For Girls and New Device. Following on from this, Matt played lead guitar in London-based pop rock band 4Hours, before moving outside the London area to start his own musical project.
Screaming For Scarlet, featuring Matt on vocals and guitar, formed in 2007 from a chance meeting of musicians in Berkshire, who all shared a common goal; to channel the best that British alternative rock has to offer, whilst avoiding the clichés and bland stereotypes that are dragging the music industry into decline. The band played their first gig to a huge audience only three weeks after forming, and quickly followed this up by recording a demo, to secure bigger and better shows.
In the following years, Matt has gigged with his band all across the south of England, playing with some of the best British up-and-coming rock bands, as well as supporting international touring bands, such as Mongoloids (USA) and Immanu EL (Sweden). An EP, titled Five Lights, was released in Feb 2011, and received great praise from reviewers and broadcasters, and has been featured in the music press in the UK and Europe.
The lead single, Five Lights, has been played extensively on radio stations both in the UK and also in the USA. The track was also selected to feature on the critically acclaimed “Punk4Japan” compilation; a selection of tracks from the UK’s most popular punk and alternative rock bands, with all profits being donated to the Japanese Tsunami disaster relief effort. The band will also be playing a music festival in August 2011 to support the homeless charities, and will also be playing an exclusive concert to close the fresher’s week celebrations at Brunel University, one of England’s top international universities.
