From the first notes of a song on the radio that just makes you feel good, to the simple lyric that reads your heart like the pages of an old book, music reaches depths that few conversations can and carries the power to transport you back to the warmest memory you have. Music gets us â€” music tells a story. Everyone loves a good story â€” and we believe ours is one worth sharing.
Tell Scarlet came together through unexpected circumstances. The common elements of faith and a love of excellence in music brought the group together in the form of the local church. Aside from using our talents within the church, we had already been cultivating our skills for years prior.
Husband and wife Jeff and Mary Davis had been playing locally in Savannah for several years while daughter Julia was growing up and coming into her own as an artist. In the spring of 2012, we formed the band Briar Rose (the precursor to Tell Scarlet) with the intention of using our talents and distinctive vocal blend to capture attention and further our musical reach.
Soon after, Cory Shuman, a pro level player, producer and award-winning drum-line instructor joined the group. Finally, Kyle Conner â€“ a top-notch rhythm and lead guitar player â€“ also joined the mix, and the result was a tight-knit, attention-grabbing musical machine, designed to engage and involve all audiences. Together we quickly became a very popular local draw, and entered the scene as an excellent wedding and event band, playing frequently at resorts and venues throughout the southeast.What started as a simple idea grew rapidly until it became a new beginning â€“ something unexpected. A business, a family, a new direction of creativity, and an outlet for us to do what we were created to do. Tell Scarlet is a unique blend of experienced musicianship, energy and passion for excellence in every detail of live performance. We believe our presentation sets us apart and our authenticity draws people in. We arenâ€™t just an event band, and weâ€™re not just a good band. Weâ€™re a group of people with a common vision who came together to dream a little. We aim to create an experience that connects with and inspires our audiences while radiating an approachability that engages everyone.
