“Home” is a tough thing to pinpoint for someone who’s constantly in motion. SCOUT GILLETT knows this well, but since relocating from Kansas City in 2017, she’s found one in Brooklyn’s DIY scene, playing in multiple live bands and even starting her own booking company, Road Dog Booking, to organize local shows and tours. Her intrepid nature results from a childhood spent running barefoot through rural Missouri and coming of age in Kansas City’s punk scene.

Her debut solo album „no roof no floor“ is a bold and spirited yet warm, intimate meditation on trust, surrender, and what makes a home. Recorded in a big wooden barn with the doors wide open, there’s a sense of spaciousness on „no roof no floor“ befitting its title. On some songs, there are even audible cricket chirps. The arrangements, too – which feature contributions from Ellen Kempner (Palehound), David Lizmi (MS MR), and Kevin Copeland (The Big Net) reflect Scout’s rural roots and her indie spirit; a fusion of upbeat, guitar-driven melodies and folk/country instrumentation like pedal steel, harmonica, and tenor banjo. All of these elements are underpinned by Scout’s signature soaring, velvet vocals and open-hearted lyricism.
