Scarlet was originally formed in the summer of 1983 by 4 friends from a Youth group in Tampa Florida. Originally as a studio project, the song "Friends" was birthed as a Demo and things would begin to take shape. Jeff and Ronnie carried on with the help of lifelong friend and studio drummer Mark Busto. The 3 went into the studio in 1984 and recorded "Stop Runnin" The song began to get air play on a local radio station and won a statewide songwriting contest. The Band won a thousand dollars and studio time which financed future recording sessions. "Stop Runnin" was submitted to "MTV's Basement Tapes" contest in 1983 and finished as a top 4 finalist. Acquiring Kip Thompson as a full time member, the group began play out and build their following. Returning to the studio in 1985, the band recorded the anthems "Were Gonna Rock" and "The Armour." Local radio picked up and began playing "Were Gonna Rock." The song began to win weekly listener voted contests as well as "King of the Mountain" for many weeks in a row. 1986 would soon bring change as the Band decided to go in a Heavier sounding direction and added drummer Jimmy Moore. "I Declare war" would birth from the next studio effort and begin the final chapter in the Band's saga. The final step of the Groups evolution was adding guitar phenom, Michael E Flake. Michael's virtuoso sound was the perfect compliment to the groups direction. The Quartet would play many theaters and clubs throughout central Florida. Scarlet would return to the studio one final time (Morrisound Recording Studio) to record 2 new songs. "Lisa" and "Right Reason" would be some of the bands finest recordings. Eventually parting in 1988, Ronnie and Michael would move to LA to pursue other avenues while Jeff and Jimmy would join Brett and Brad Warren to form "St Warren". Scarlet had a strong impact on the local Tampa Bay music scene.

Fast forward thirty years and Scarlet returns as powerful as ever with their new album Scarlet II which consists of 13 newly recorded songs: Five recently written and eight Scarlet Classics redone with a fresh spin on them. From 1984 to 2014, saluting the first 30 years and carrying the fire into the next 30 years . It has been a blast and an honor to play with some of the finest musical friends in my life. A lot of heart has been poured into this project. I hope you feel it and enjoy this album. I will always rock for God and for you. Turn it up, boost the bass, rock and enjoy!

God bless you, Jeff Alan
