IT'S been a busy year for Karen Barrow, better known to the pop world as Codicote songstress Scarlette Fever.
March saw the release of her debut single What Would You Do? which received regular airplay from Hertfordshire radio station Jack FM.
She embarked on a tour supporting Roachford, as well as numerous dates around the country at Pride events.
Not only that, but she performed alongside newly reinstated Take That member Robbie Williams during the Christmas light switch on in Blackpool.
And she shows no sign of slowing up in 2011.
After a series of headline dates in London earlier this month, she’s supporting Clare Grogan and Altered Images in the new year, as well as releasing her next single, Crash & Burn, which is scheduled for release in January.
The last time the Welwyn Hatfield Times spoke to Scarlette was back in July, when she was just about to release her second single Cheatin’ Man and embark on the aforementioned Roachford dates.
So what else is new? Well, she loves Roachford (“If you ever get the chance to see that guy, do it. He’s amazing.”), and she’s also decided to run the London Marathon in April.
“That’s certainly an advert not to have a drink then fill in an application form,” jokes Scarlette, 28.
“I’m running it with a friend. We were watching America’s Biggest Loser and thought if they could do it, them so could we.”
Scarlette will be running in support of ABC (Against Breast Cancer), which is both a cause close to her heart and the inspiration for Crash & Burn.
“A few years ago, I lost a very close friend to breast cancer which had a profound effect on how I view life,” she said.
“I decided to always take chances, and to never leave a stone unturned with regards to relationships – because life really is just too short.
“That’s what the lyrics to Crash & Burn mean to me, and if the song is thought-provoking to other people then – well – I’ve had an amazing day at the office.”
Crash & Burn is out on Starfisch records on January 16 on digital download.
