Often known for her way of entwining mesmerizing vocal passages with a 7-string guitar groove far advanced beyond your average singer/songwriter, Skarlett Woods brings folk and West Coast Jazz to the same dinner table.

Entwining Swing and Jazz into folk-themed stories of love, she has a stage presence that demands the attention of a room. Taking her listeners on up-beat rhythmic rides over heart- swelling arrangements of originals and covers, Skarlett has simply become more comfortable showing herself in the lights. She took a spot light in the 2022 Dylan Fest Songwriters Contest as one of the winning songs that evening. She is currently in the studio with Minneapolis Producer/Songwriter, Kevin Bowe, who has worked with- Jonny Lang, Etta James, Joe Cocker and many others, to release a single from that winning song, “Close To You (Braver These Days)" in the coming new year. And gearing up for a Sophomore album release in the Fall of 2023.

Tapers notes: I discovered Skarlett earlier in the year at the Bob Dylan Singer-Songwriter contest, and knew I had to see her again. She is a unique talent, she plays electric and acoustic guitar, but she also has a self made drum kit she plays with her feet (check out the pictures to see what I mean), and uses her voice as an instrument at times. She plays a mix of covers and originals, but a lot of these covers are so different from the original versions it becomes a really cool blend.
