Labor of Love is a new album release that captures the once in a lifetime experience of first-time Motherhood in a modern world. It is told through beautifully arranged and radio-friendly songs, driven by the unmistakable voice that is Scarlett Cherry.
The Labor of Love album was conceived, written and recorded all during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters of Scarlettʼs pregnancy. Their healthy baby boy, Riff Maxwell Cherry, was born on Jan. 29th, 2011 and the record releases just in time for Motherʼs Day. Scarlett and her husband, Lee Cherry (celebrity photographer and Executive Producer), set out to create a soulful record that would inspire Mothers and families across the world, but to the melody of a mom that never gave up her stilettos.
Without any support from major labels, the project raised over $42,000 from fan support to produce the album, develop merchandise, and conduct marketing and PR efforts. This unique concept, combined with Scarlettʼs unmistakable world-class vocals, attracted some of the most talented songwriters and musicians in Los Angeles: Alisan Porter (The Canyons, Adam Lambert, The Zodiac Show), Ely Rise (Adam Lambert, Macy Gray) Ty Taylor (Rock Star INXS, Vintage Trouble, The Zodiac Show), Davy Nathan (Tony Braxton, Jason Derulo, Christina Aguilera), Monte Pittman (Madonna, Adam Lambert, Prong), Ilsey Juber (The Canyons), and Jordan Lawhead (The Canyons). It was co-executive produced and recorded at Media Temple
Productions in Hollywood, CA.
The listening party was held on April 16th, 2011, and attracted celebrity attention like Adam Lambert, Carmit Bachar (Pussycat Dolls), and Lisa Pittman (cover model mother). The response was overwhelming and the pre-sales of the album have far exceeded expectations. “As artists, we were in agreement that the music should be appealing to both parents, mother and child,” Scarlett says. “A support record for Mothers, a little bit of lullaby for baby, and appealing to everyone.” Whether youʼre a first time Mother or Father, or are a Parent many times over, Labor of Love will speak directly to your heart and will become something you treasure for a lifetime.
