Rhiannon Scutt


  1. 1.
There is clear evolution through Rhiannon’s nine-year career. A shift away from the lively, acoustic-roots feel of her first duo Rita Payne, through to a period of introspective, poignant songs where she developed her voice as a lyricist.
Now working with a grittier, more raw sound, she maintains her beautiful and sometimes uncomfortable lyrics, experimenting with a growing collection of world-class musicians, their combined sound converging at the point where dirty distorted guitars meet jazz trumpets, live strings and drum machines.
Influenced by Ani DiFranco’s percussive guitar style and Lindsey Buckingham’s rapid fingerpicking, Rhiannon’s unique guitar technique has often garnered attention. Together with her charismatic stage presence and emotive lyrics, she has stood alone as a captivating performer without need of supporting instrumentation.
As an urge to collaborate with other artists and extend her sound outside her own capabilities has grown; through experimentation, play, and an impressive array of accomplished musical collaborators, Rhiannon has developed a new sound, and through that, an intriguing collection of new work.
Think the tender lyrics of Adrienne Lenker, the syncopated electronic rhythms of Sylvan Esso and the witchy magic of Stevie Nicks.
