“Home” is a tough thing to pinpoint for someone who’s constantly in motion. Scout Gillett knows this well, but since relocating from Kansas City in 2017, she’s found one in Brooklyn’s DIY scene, playing in multiple live bands and even starting her own booking company to organize local shows. Her intrepid nature results from a childhood spent running barefoot through rural Missouri and coming of age in Kansas City’s punk scene.
As an indie sparkplug with old soul sensibilities, Scout crafts soulful, folk-tinged music that draws on both her rural roots and her DIY spirit. Her debut solo album ‘No Roof No Floor’ is a bold and spirited yet warm, intimate meditation on trust, surrender, and what makes a home.
