Skinny Living - plus Simon Walker - 7th March 2015

Artists' websites: Skinny Living / Simon Walker

Fresh from supporting Jake Bugg at Leeds Arena, this is a young band gaining media attention very quickly. They are signed up to perform at the 2015 Isle of Wight Festival. So rather than seeing them with thousands of people, we have just 50 places available for this unique full band gig. So grab this chance to come and see them here, before they move up to much bigger stages!

For such a young band to play a sold out arena is a fairly unique occurrence, but they didn’t just do well, they were amazing and won over so many fans. Skinny Living are: Ryan Johnston, Will Booth, Danny Hepworth and Rhys Anderton and put their stamp on the traditional modern ‘alt-guitar’ genre with a blend of rock, blues, and more intimate folk-acoustic sounds.

"I haven’t heard modern music like theirs that holds a real vintage, classic style sound so authentic and raw and bursting with energy, since Jake Bugg came on the scene, so they really were a perfect act to warm up the show. These young guys also launched their brand new single “Mother Earth” at the gig, which made me feel like I had gone back in time and I was watching the gig in black and white, and they just filled the surprisingly intimate arena with such a feel good atmosphere.

What is so great about Skinny Living’s music is that every song is relateable to an audience and that provided a real personal touch to their set. These guys also have the song writing ability to create music with variety that still carries through a distinct sound which makes their music uniquely their own but yet never boring. The way in which Skinny Living perform, act and present themselves show true promise of a band that are destined to reach new levels..." [Review 2014. We Plug Good Music.]
