Rhiannon Scutt

Sheffield-based Rhiannon has been adding celebrity fans throughout her career from Martin Simpson to Richard Hawley.

Influenced by Ani DiFranco’s percussive guitar style and Lindsey Buckingham’s rapid fingerpicking, Rhiannon’s unique guitar technique has garnered critical attention. Together with her charismatic stage presence and emotive lyrics, she has stood alone as a captivating performer without the need of supporting instrumentation.

“Phenomenal guitar work”Andy Kershaw

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.

“Rhiannon can deliver a line that can break your heart in an instant. She’s an outstanding guitar player and songwriter of emotive compositions combining a deftness of touch with vivid evocations of mood, memory and feelings – compelling and captivating”…The Guardian

Think the tender lyrics of Adrienne Lenker, the syncopated electronic rhythms of Sylvan Esso and the witchy magic of Stevie Nicks.

“A great songwriter, an excellent and intelligent performer, a top-class singer and musician”Kit Bailey, R2 Folk Awards
