Their chemistry was immediate with Brian bringing life to the songs that Olya had been writing. Before long, the two formed Scarlet Sails, rounding out the line up with guitarist Mark Kohut and bassist Kevin Jones. Centered around Olya’s sultry, power-house vocals, Scarlet Sails craft an elaborate blend of rock & pop, with uniquely catchy melodies, passionate and reflective lyrics and undeniable swagger that has drawn comparisons to artists as diverse as David Bowie, Nico, Radiohead and Oasis.
In April 2017 Scarlet Sails released their debut Future from the Past to critical acclaim, with Consequence of Sound premiering the album and Impose Magazine lauding the band’s “pure rock n’ roll vibes”. The band supported the release with three national tours and a New Year's Eve show in Moscow.
2018 saw Scarlet Sails head back to the studio with producer, Ben Rice (Norah Jones) release a series of singles; Hideaway, Upside Down, and My Love (2019).
