Skarlett received winning placements in Duluth’s Dylan Fest Songwriting Contest in both 2022 and 2023 for her songs, “Close To You (Braver These Days)” and “Me, I, Me, Me”. After being named for the “People’s Choice Award” at Wussow’s Songwriting Contest in 2023, Skarlett was selected as the opening ceremony act for Duluth’s 2023 Homegrown Festival with standing room only. These successes have garnered her a reputation throughout Minnesota as a stellar performer with a unique singing style that brings a sound baked from places she’s lived and experiences she has had. Hailed by Dave Franklin, Dancing About Architecture, as a “worthy successor to the likes of James Taylor, Joan Baez or His Bobness”, her heart-felt, unafraid and ‘honest to the core’ style of music lives somewhere between blue-eye Soul, Folk, and Americana, with a hint of hope. 

Her Sophomore Album release, “Letters To The West” is filled with some despair, as well as that hint of hope. A concept album of stories and philosophical ponderings from adventures out west and living in western society, it speaks to the times of today and times of the past while being submerged in a love story of what it means to be human.
