I’ve been singing as Scarlett O’Connor for the past four years, so to be embarking on the journey of creating my debut album, and recording songs I’ve penned for the first time ever, I’m very grateful to have the good people of ASCAP looking out for me as an artist and a writer. Their effort toward ensuring songwriters are protected is both admirable and comforting. And they’re a pretty good hang too.”
