Scarlet Baxter – Skydive 
Scarlet Baxter - Skydive

Release Date: 8th December 2017

London based Scarlet Baxter has been on my radar for a while now but this new single has placed her firmly in the Country category and no mistake. ‘Skydive’ blends the pop confidence of Kelly Clarkson and Ellie Goulding with the Country twang of Wildwood Kin and Lady Antebellum to create a soothing, snuggle up piece of break-up Country-Pop. This is a modern ballad with just enough about it to stop it getting stale and, crucially, Baxter doesn’t try to over sing a single note which is a sure sign that she’s not only got talent but also confidence in her own abilities. This is unlikely to be the track that propels Baxter to mainstream fame unless Radio 2 get behind it but expect this to get a rerelease if she hits the big time in 2018.
