Scarlet Monk – Happy Heart break

Scarlet's Monk's debut “AnnaBella” has been long awaited by die-hard downtempo fans around the globe, and they will be far from disappointed. The versatile and innovative artist blends Jazz, Trip-Hop and Bossa Nova influences with her sultry and passionate voice, letting heart break sound like a something that is more than worth a try. All tracks feature Scarlet's raw and sincere lyrics, once again showing her ability to touch the listener's heart, highlighted in tracks like “Cinema” and “Placated”, displaying Monk's ambivalent and mysterious soul.

AnnaBella - More than a beautiful debut of a fantastic artist.

Written by Soraya Garcia for Global Vortex Records


Grab a cocktail and kick back with Scarlet Monk's debut, "AnnaBella." With a voice that blends the smoothness of Bebel Gilberto with the vulnerable sexuality of Garbage's Shirley Manson, Scarlet Monk can not only hypnotize in a cool, loungey track like the radio-ready groove "Ring," but can also drop a hard emotional hammer when delivering the spoken-word snarl of "Placated." Smooth trip hop beats with subtle Latin flair keep the ride on the low, slow side. A strong debut from a delicious new talent.

Hypnagogue Reviews


If you love Bjork, and you love that rich ethno- eerie sound of the Bulgarian Women’s Chorus, look no further than Scarlet Monk. I didn’t realize that both of those elements would combine as successfully as they did, but Scarlet Monk’s voice is both modern and ancient, transcendent and eerie, vulnerable and powerful in turns. More Monk – much, much more Monk - and less funk.

Dr. Leslie


"I'm really digging Scarlet Monk's newest album, "AnnaBella". Her voice seeps into you with each song, and you keep hearing her voice long after the record is over. It's almost like as if she's a ghost haunting your brain, in a good way."

Senator Adam of THE NEW LAW
