Originally from Kansas City, Scout Gillett moved to Brooklyn NY in summer of 2017. She packed up her mom's Kia Rio after her meeting a longtime influence, Sharon Van Etten, who personally encouraged her to take the leap and join the New York music scene. Since then she has formed the band Shadow Year and has toured nation wide in a short bus gifted to them by a fellow musician and believer. Having organized punk shows in Kansas City, Scout picked up a knack for booking.
She currently curates all shows for her projects, freelances with other bands and books for a DIY venue in the basement of her Ridgewood home. Scout met Katy Rea while she was slinging drinks behind a bar. She overheard that Katy was in search for a bassist and the two have been playing together since. Scout is touring after the release of her first single "Signal, " with Katy Rea this spring. Among her many Influences you'd find Cat Power, Broadcast, Stereo Lab, Sharon Van Etten and The Motels.
