Scout Niblett is Nottingham, England's answer to all the brash, intelligent, and honest female songwriters who emerged from America during the early 21st century. Continually compared to Cat Power and fellow countrywoman PJ Harvey, Niblett (real name: Emma Louise) proved her own merit with a strong, stark voice and a penchant for spartan songs containing only drums and vocals. She also became known for her eccentricity, which included a fondness for wigs. Her lyrics, however, displayed a more serious side, creating their own place where love and its complementary senses ruled and took on their own lives. While often playing solo, Niblett also utilized a revolving cast of bandmates from time to time, as well as the frequent assistance of producer Steve Albini.
