Scarlett Creek Duo
Scarlett Creek are a Hobart based acoustic duo featuring Emma Jackson on vocals and Justin O’Garey on guitar and backing vocals. Jackson’s vocal can be described as dynamic and gutsy with just a hint of rasp and loves to adapt her voice to suit a wide range of genres, but rock is where her heart is. She is heavily influenced by artists such as Lzzy Hale of Halestorm, Beth Hart and Tina Turner. This welsh born artist has hit the Hobart music scene running, which is to be expected when she hails from the “˜land of song’. O’Garey has been performing live music around Tasmania since 2007. Whilst more commonly known as a solo artist, the singer/guitarist has also gained recognition with bands such as “˜Scenic Flights’, “˜Justin O’Garey and The Howling Blues Hounds’, and multiple duo acts and guest appearances. His unique style comes from influences of rock, pop and blues all jammed together in one amazing package. Scarlett Creek have been performing in Hobart and the surrounding areas, playing at The Victoria Tavern, The Tasmanian Inn, Longley International Hotel, Hotel Soho and Old Kempton Distillery. Playing a range of genres including rock, blues, pop and soul from the 60’s up to the present day, there is something to please everyone. They know how to read an audience and can tailor their performance dependent on the mood. They are happy to go hard through each set to keep the party pumping, or keep it chilled out and relaxed for quieter functions.
Scarlett Creek are a pleasure to have play at my venue, Their amazing voices, quirky personalities and great song cover choices always bring in a solid following. They interact with their crowd and it is always good to see people have a sing along and dance to their tunes.
