Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page praised the undeniable talent and success of his beautiful girlfriend, Scarlett Sabet, with an Instagram post by saying his instinct was right about her while recalling the day he attended Sabet’s poetry reading in London.
As you might know, the legendary rock star, Jimmy Page, has been one of the greatest supporters of the London based poet and performer, Scarlett Sabet, for a long while now. In October 2019, Page produced the radical spoken world album, ‘Catalyst,’ of Sabet, creating a visceral sonic landscape from the poems for a new poetic form and language.
Through his most recent post on Instagram, Page has once again displayed his never-ending support to his girlfriend. The legend has reminisced about the day when he had the opportunity to hear Scarlett read, recite and live her poems for the first time in 2013 at the Worlds End Bookshop.
Jimmy said that Scarlett’s character and charisma was unique and unlike any other poet he had witnessed on that special night. Page explained that while Scarlett delivered an extraordinary version of her poem ‘Rocking Underground,’ the people attending the reading gave her a rousing response.
After Sabet went on to self publish her first collection of poems, ‘Rocking Underground,’ which includes so many stand-out poems such as ‘Shackles’ and ‘Unnatural Act,’ she proved her success publicly. Her book sold very quickly and this news led her to publish a follow-up volume, ‘The Lock And The Key.’
Page lastly mentioned the praiseworthy third volume of Scarlett’s collection, ‘Zoreh,’ and concluded his words by saying he is looking forward to her future work, which will surely create a wave of enthusiasm from people who admire the strength of her poems.
Here’s what Jimmy Page said in his latest Instagram post:
“On this day in 2013, I attended Scarlett Sabet’s poetry reading in London at the Worlds End Bookshop, where I had the opportunity to hear her read, recite and live her poems for the first time.
Her character and charisma was unique and unlike any other poet I had witnessed. That night Scarlett delivered an extraordinary version of her poem ‘Rocking Underground.’ The people attending the reading gave her a rousing response to this poem.
I knew from that poem and others she read that night that Scarlett was indeed a very special poet with so much already to offer. Scarlett went on to self publish her first collection of poems, it was called ‘Rocking Underground’ and had many stand out poems such as ‘Shackles’ and ‘Unnatural Act.’
My instinct was right. Her book sold very quickly and in fact ‘Rocking Underground’ is now in its third edition. Similarly ‘The Lock And The Key’ which featured ‘Cut Up,’ ‘Functioning,’ and ‘Euphoric Kiss,’ has proved to be a most popular follow-up volume with an exceptional response, it is also in its third edition.”
“The more recent ‘Zoreh’ (with a remarkable photo by Scarlet Page) has created a wave of enthusiasm from people who admire the strength of her poems as written on paper but also the power of her performance.
‘Zoreh’ the third volume even eclipsed its predecessors with poems such as ‘Fifth Circle of Hell,’ ‘Armistice Day’ and ‘Lilith in the Midheaven,’ that are bringing a new dimension to Scarlett’s talent. I’m looking forward to her future work.
You can purchase and listen to ‘Catalyst,’ a spoken word poetry album performed by Scarlett and produced by me at Tower House, now from JimmyPage.com
