Skinners Lane Review / Interview

At first listen to Skinner’s Lane, you are hit with the heavy rock inspired sound, that one would often associate with the likes of Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, or the rock movement of the 70s… but don't be fooled, there is more to this band than the heavy guitar riffs and Ian Curtis like crooning. There is a certain profoundness to the lyrics and the carefully constructed melody that keeps you hooked to the sound.

To My Face is a raw and emotional song. The fast paced and reminiscent punk rock vibe combined with Zak Langfords raw and untamed vocals provide for a wild listening experience. The layered instruments create an even harsher sound while the contemporary lyrics expose the true nature of human beings and how society has taught us to judge or be judged. The chorus says “say it to my face” which many people don't do as they are afraid. Towards the end of the song, a guitar solo replaces the voice to create a melodic instrumental and it creates a new layer on the song all together. The solo was a needed aspect of the song, and Skinner’s Lane did not disappoint. Drummer James Kerr keeps the song moving forwards in an intoxicating manner.

All of you I'm sure, have been on a wild night out, in a foreign place where you don't know many people. Dear Brighton talks about the emotions behind putting yourself out there in a new place.

The opening riff is one that you can get caught in the trap of humming for days, but not entirely minding about. The lead singer Zak shows us a softer side to his personality and vocals with the soft and mellifluous sound. The song itself represents a night out. It starts of at a slower pace to match that as the preparation to go out. Throughout the song it gets faster to show the night out, but towards the end it slows down and this represents the coming down after the high. The bridge creates a needed pause and adds a layer of sophistication to the song. The carefully constructed bass line by Rob Holland keeps the listener spellbind and seduced.

The two songs, although melodically similar, are in two different ballparks. Dear Brighton to me comes form a more self conscious Musician then that of the writer of to my face, even though they are written by the same person. The difference in the themes for the songs shows an acceptance for who the band is and who they used to be, which for the audience is a wonderful thing to hear. Music is an art and at the end of the day not everyone is going to like it. To really make it as a Musician you have to believe in yourselves, which is what Skinner’s Lane has managed to achieve.

Overall, the band Skinner’s Lane is on the rise and is one to watch out for. If you are feeling Low, pop on Dear Brighton and you will be alright in no time. If you feel defiant then the anthem for you is to my face. I'm looking forward towards the bright future that is and always will be Skinner’s Lane.

 

Skinner’s Lane Interview

 

1. How do you know The Old School Project?

I found out about Old School Project through a friend of mine, Jacob Solarek, whose band, ‘The Cubes,’ got a really awesome EP review. I ended up looking at the site and loved the ethos regarding supporting and reporting about creative projects going on all across the world.

2. Who are your influences when writing music?

Black Keys, Franz Ferdinand, Royal Blood, Arctic Monkeys, Jack White are probably my biggest influences when it comes to writing much of the Skinner's Lane songs. However, I listen to lots of different music ranging from Duke Ellington to Wulfpeck. There are also plenty of artists from 60s and 70s that have had an influence on my writing, particularly riffs, such as Black Sabbath, Cream and Led Zeppelin.Living in Liverpool the past three years has also had a profound effect on my music. The city had such a rich live scene so I always try to go out and see live music when I can and it has definitely influenced the music I write.

3. I heard that you are going on a small hiatus, what’s the reasoning behind this?

At the minute we are just taking a break from playing with each other. We’ve gigging regularly since our debut gig on March 2017 and so we just needed a break from playing live so we can come back with newer and fresher ideas than before.

4. Are there any collaborations in your future, and if so with who?

So far Skinner’s Lane haven’t really collaborated with any artists. However I’m always open to working with other people and trying ideas out and it’s always exciting to try new things with different people.

5. How did the band form?

I first met James at Liverpool Sound City back in 2016 but had no idea we were going to end up playing a band together! He then ended up coming to the same university, where we also met Rob. We all loved riff melodic music and ended up starting a band that would

6. Can we expect any new music in the near future?

Absolutely! Keep your eyes pealed on any of the Skinner’s Lane website and social media in the next few months, we have some very exciting things to come.

7. Are you full time musicians or do you have jobs on the side?

Currently Rob, James and I study at The Liverpool Institute Performing Arts with aspirations of becoming full time musicians hopefully in the next few years. Rob has a part-time job on the side and then he also session plays for other artist as do James and myself.

8. What is your ultimate goal with music, fame and fortune or a good time?

World domination! I’d say our ultimate goal would be regularly touring and playing some of the biggest festival around the UK, such as Latitude, T in the Park and of course Glastonbury. It’s important to us that we write and perform music though that is both true to ourselves and the band.

9. Is the writing of the music a collaborative project or is there a certain person who pioneers it?

I pretty much write all the material and bring it to the group and we make appropriate changes where needed. We try the music to be both adventurous and catchy and importantly we try make each song we write stand apart from one another.

10. I love Dear Brighton, care to explain the writing and thought processes behind it?

Wow, really glad you like the tune thank you! It’s one of the first songs I wrote for the band and the first night-out experiences in Liverpool, which has one of the best nightclub scenes around and lots of really nice, great people. This song however was about me being disillusioned with a group of people I had just met and it expresses the feeling of confusion and weird vibes I was getting that night. I tried to make the song forward moving with it’s instrumentation but wanted to give a weird flavouring too, particularly in the bridge, to take the listener in this journey.

Slow Motion Suicide

We are a four-piece band influenced by the simplicity of the 90ties and huge guitar sounds of modern rock and aspire to establish ourselves in Europe's limelight in the upcoming years. Formed by the vocalist Nicky Ingram, the band comprises of Mark Leossa on lead guitar, Anna Smith on bass and Iggy Krutz on drums.

 

Future Thieves

Young musicians come to Nashville to chicken-pick and twang. They come to sing about trucks, girls and girls in trucks. Not so with Future Thieves. They came to rock. You hear it in the first seconds of the first track of their first album. Horizon Line, available now on all major digital media, kicks off with a punchy drum intro. Then the band comes in: a quiet verse with urgent lead vocals, crashing guitar chords and thundering bass licks power into the chorus and then it ends suddenly, leaving listeners exhilarated and hungry for more.

Nick Brodeur

Nicholas "Nick" John Brodeur has musical passion running through his blood. His great aunt Jackie Lee broke through the UK Top Ten in 1968 with "White Horses" and sang on Jimi Hendrix's classic debut single, "Hey Joe." As early as six years old, Nick expressed interest in the electric guitar after seeing Metallica in concert for the first time. Within a week, Nick began professional vocal and guitar lessons on his Gibson Les Paul Classic.

 

Frankie White

Music for me is such a massive part of my life, to be honest its how I cope with what I go through, (the good, the bad & the uncertain) music is infinite and its something that can be loved by every single person the world over, so I say love music feel it, relate and share it.

Anuschka Wright

Bahamian Jazz vocalist, Anuschka Wright, has always been a performer. And thus, like many others, she got her start early on by singing often in church and school choirs. As a child she was a member of The Bahamas National Children’s Choir and took advantage of the opportunity by travelling with the group to exciting cities like Moscow and New York while still in primary school. She considers herself blessed to have had so many varying experiences as a young girl.

 

Talia Denis

As a teen, Talia’s approach to music is definitely not what you would expect. Her music is on the edgier side of Pop Rock, featuring real instrumentation and catchy hooks, all while lyrically offering a positive slant on life.

Talia already has substantial performing and touring experience. She has played with X Factor’s Fifth Harmony. She also headlined her own regional tour that included, fairs, camps, theme parks and clubs, all to rave reviews. During this tour, Talia also had the opportunity to play with Rusted Root, Deluka and Jasmine Villegas. She continues to perform and will be going on tour again in the summer of 2017

Talia was also invited to sing the National Anthem for The New York Rangers to a sold out crowd at Madison Square Garden.

Andy Jans-Brown & COZMIC

Andy Jans-Brown & COZ*MIC are a 5 piece Alternative Pop Rock Band based in the iconic Australian beach town of Byron Bay. They've just finished shooting and are soon to release their 'Dressed in a woman's clothes' film clip which is staring 7 time logie award winner Paula Duncan and her daughter Jessica Orcsik. 'Dressed in a woman's clothes' enjoyed over a month of being at number one on the Triple J Unearthed 'Indie' Chart.

Candace Bellamy

A physician by day and a soul singer by night, Bellamy took up singing as a hobby 10 years ago, paying dues in cover bands, musical theater (her role in an R&B version of “Porgy & Bess” impressed the New York Times), and with a one-woman show where she told stories of her life in between tunes.

Bellamy’s path led to Ruth Carter (composer for Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robert Palmer, and John Mayall), bass playing legend Jimi Calhoun (player with Dr. John, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Wilson Pickett, Sly Stone) and Jake Langley (Roberta Flack, Willie Nelson, k.d. lang), who mentored her, and became her co-writers.

 

Lisa Panagos

Mystical Greek Goddesses were alluring forms of aesthetic beauty moved by the muses to recite inspirational poetry or sing in pure golden tones that reflected the essence of sound. In a reminiscent gleam of these mystical characters of ancient times we find LISA PANAGOS reflecting golden tones in her music. Her last name, Panagos, is derived from the Greek word PAN, who is the God of music. With a name like that, no wonder Lisa has followed a career in music. Already a successful actress and dancer, Lisa is a vibrant recording artist and songwriter, whose music evokes a sleek sensuality.
