Samantha Scarlette (born February 8, 1990) is a soft grunge / alternative rock singer-songwriter, guitarist, and internet radio talk show host.

Early life

Scarlette was born in Saddle River, New Jersey and her family relocated to Paradise Valley, Arizona. As a teenager, Scarlette interviewed and photographed rock bands for a blog she created.[1] She is half Nigerian.[2] Scarlette attended college at the age of 16 for television & radio broadcasting / film direction.[3]


Scarlette started writing songs in October 2010 that would later become her "Into The Darkness" EP. In early February 2011, she entered the recording studio with former Scary Kids Scaring Kids drummer, Justin Salter. Salter engineered the studio recorded portion of the EP, as well as played drum & bass on the tracks. Scarlette played guitar on all of the songs except for "Fallen Star" (played by Salter). "Into The Darkness" was released on June 28, 2011.[4] In September 2014, Scarlette released a lyric video for a song called "Iron Maiden". A digital single for the song was released to iTunes on October 13, 2013.[5] In February 2014, she released, "Fallen Star" a song from Into The Darkness EP, as a single. A music video for the song was released on February 12, 2014 and the song was distributed as a free mp3 download on her website.[6][7][8] She stated that she was going into the studio with a producer and would be releasing a new album later that year.[9][10]

In March 2014, Scarlette began working with producer Hiili Hiilesmaa(HIM, 69 Eyes, Amorphis)[11] and in July 2014 they recorded a new album titled "Violent Delights + Violent Ends" at Quad Studios in Times Square. Scarlette's vocal coach, Sarah Dash of Labelle, appears as a background vocalist on two of the tracks ("These Violent Delights" and "Epitaphs of Love"). An additional track ( "[death of a dream] Reprise: Farewell") was recorded in October 2014 at Quad Studios and features Matt Deis from CKY on guitar and piano.[12][13][14][15][16] The first single from "Violent Delights + Violent Ends", "These Violent Delights" was released on iTunes on September 30, 2014, with a music video released a few weeks later.[17][18] A music video for the second single "Epitaphs of Love" was released November 7. The album "Violent Delights + Violent Ends" was released November 18, 2014.[19][20][21] Scarlette released a music video for a third single "Forgiven Sins" in July 2015.[22][23][24] Scarlette released "Gothic Queen", the final single from "Violent Delights + Violent Ends" January 18, 2016.[25]

Scarlette stated in an interview in January 2016, that she is going to start recording an album, tentatively titled "My So-Called Life" shortly.[26] Scarlette announced on her Twitter that a new single titled "Page Six" would be released in June 2016.[27] "Page Six" was released on June 6, 2016 with a music video released June 21. The song is a departure from the goth rock sound on "Violent Delights + Violent Ends", and has more of a 90's alternative influence to it.[28] As of April 2018 Scarlette announced she had scrapped the "My So-Called Life" project and is working on something new.[29][30]

On March 17, 2018 Scarlette released a free album for an "experimental electronic project" under the band name EX0XE to SoundCloud. The album was titled "VOID". The intro & outré tracks were originally intended for "My So-Called Life".[31][29]

Scarlette has been working on putting together a paranormal themed online radio show.[38] She has previously released two episodes as a podcast called "Area 666 Radio" as a collaboration with a friend in 2015. She announced in April 2016 via Twitter[39] that she would be doing a new live format online radio show called "I Want To Believe with Samantha Scarlette". The first episode aired May 14, 2016 on Energy Rock Radio.[40]

In October 2016, Scarlette started doing a weekly paranormal segment for Idobi Radio's Eddie, Jason, & Chris Show.[41] Scarlette's segment ran for approximately 20 minutes during the shows second hour. She had high profile guests on the segment such as Stanton T. Friedman, Peter Janney, Jeff Belanger, Tony Ortega, Joe Biggs of Info Wars, Stephen Pearcy of RATT, Steve Hodel (son of George Hill Hodel), satanic artist JJ Brine, and more.[42]

Blackout also features interviews alternative models and popular rock bands, as well as the paranormal guests.[44] As of December 1, 2017, Eddie Barella no-longer co-hosts Blackout; the show is now called "Blackout With Samantha Scarlette".[45][46]
