Harry Skinner. (Blues and a bit more)
Harry Skinner is a founder member of the UK award winning blues band ‘The Producers’ and after nearly 30 years of plying his trade as the songwriter and frontman for the band is now branching out as a solo artist. With The Producers, Harry has toured extensively from Japan to Atlanta USA and New Zealand and all points between playing to audiences in every kind of venue. His music has received airplay worldwide and has been featured on the Paul Jones Radio show on Radio 2 on several occasions. Harry has recorded music with Andy Fairweather Low, Paul Lamb and Ben Waters as well as performing in shows featuring many of the great Blues artists of our time. With The Producers, Harry has recorded 12 albums of largely original material and with Dave Saunders he has presented three albums of duo performances. 2019 has seen Harry produce his first solo album ‘The Sinner’s List’, of which Blues Matters magazine said: ‘if you’re lucky enough to catch him [playing solo], this album would be the perfect memento of a great night’.
2020 will see the release of a new solo album and appearances at a number of prominent UK blues festivals.
Should you be interested in booking me as a solo performer or with any of the bands that I play in, the first point of contact should be through email.
I can supply a PA for most small gigs (suitable for band or solo) but if you are supplying PA I will need to send an appropriate spec to you.
For solo gigs, all that is required is a PA system with at least 4 inputs, one microphone and stand, and 3 DI boxes with associated XLR cables.
Apart from that a nice cup of tea is always welcome.
Payment will need to be in cash on the night though payment through BACS is acceptable as long as it is pre-arranged. I will supply an invoice as required.
I am also available for depping and recording. Please email if you think that I may be of use to you. In addition I can record and arrange music for you in most styles. I have experience in film scoring and composing to a brief. Some examples may be found here. In short, why not ask me?
