Scout Niblett (UK)
indie / singer songwriter
Emma Louise Niblett (born 29 September 1973 in UK) is a British singer-songwriter, known by the pseudonym Scout Niblett. Her music is frequently minimalist in style, many of her songs consisting merely of vocals accompanied by either drums or guitar, which she mostly plays herself. She is known for her intimate live shows and her blond wig while performing. She is currently living in the United States, where she has worked with the influential Steve Albini.
Niblett grew up in Nottingham, England and chose her stage name in honour of Jean Louise “Scout” Finch, the protagonist in Harper Lee’s 1960 novel To Kill a Mockingbird. She studied music and performance art at college, and also expresses an interest in astrology—explaining the title of her 2005 LP Kidnapped by Neptune, she says, “Neptune is this planet that everyone has in their chart. But for me, where Neptune is right now and has been for the past two years has been affecting my chart in a huge way. Neptune is kind of the musicians’ planet, it rules music.”
Niblett has released three LPs, through the Secretly Canadian record company in North America and through Too Pure in the United Kingdom. Her first release was a split 7” single with Songs: Ohia in 2001. Shortly after this she released her first LP Sweet Heart Fever, recorded in Glasgow with drummer Kristian Goddard.
