|The Scarlet Ending
The music scene in Syracuse, New York is a snow globe that has been turned upside down and shaken by a new sound. That sound is coming from The Scarlet Ending, a six piece band that is stretching the confines of genre. Loosely defined as indie rock, The Scarlet Ending offers a blend of pop with cabaret, the grit of dive bar rock with the charms of three part harmony. This unique personality comes through in the angelic yet unforgiving voices of sisters Kaleena and Kayleigh Goldsworthy. These two command the stage while playing piano and guitar respectively, in addition to violin, melodica, and a pawn shop of other instruments. The theatricality of the girls is supported with a backbone of innovative musicians. Guitarist Jon Tedd and Cellist Jess Hafner compliment the layers of sound while Bassist Aaron Garritillo syncopates and carries each song to their full potential.
The Scarlet Ending has received recognition both home and abroad, beginning with their debut EP which earned them a Syracuse Area Music Award for Best Pop Record of 2005. Their follow up full length, Cries and Whispers, saw the release of “The Way We Used To Be” which was featured on MTV’s 'The Hills' and "Winter on VH1's 'Tool Academy.' Since these breakthroughs, the band has been active touring in the United States as well as seeing time in Greenland and Germany as members of the Armed Forces Entertainment roster. This upswing of exposure has made The Scarlet Ending an unrelenting force. With an unforgettable full length waiting in the wings, The Scarlet Ending is ready to expand their fan base, and share the rare promise and potential they possess. The Scarlet Ending has never claimed to redefine the expectations of pop music, but they just might.
