"...pensive, smart, lyrical chamber pop/Americana..." - Alan Young, New York Music Daily

The Scarlet K is a Brooklyn-based indie-Americana band founded by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Sarah Knight. The band’s first project melds acoustic songwriting with elements of bluegrass, Southern gospel hymns, and the occasional touch of marching band, all gleaned from an upbringing in Virginia.

SubCulture NYC presented The Scarlet K’s debut performance in August 2014 to a standing room only crowd. The show featured Sarah Knight (ukulele/piano/lead vocals/horn), Hugh Ash (trumpet), Hope Bagley (woodwinds), Matthew Gelfer (fiddle/guitar/banjo/ukulele), Brian Herrick (mandolin/trombone), Casey Howard (banjo/guitar), Victoria Langford (trombone/clarinet/piano), Britton Matthews (drums), Annie Shaver (cello), and P.J. Shaver (tuba), along with Gretchen Poole and Emilie Williams (back-up vocals). Words and music by Sarah Knight; instrumental arrangements by Gregory C. Brown and Sarah Knight.
