The Skins are an infectious Brooklyn-based rock band consisting of siblings Bayli, Reef, and Kaya Mckeithan, along with friends and dueling guitarists Daisy Spencer and Russell Chell. Although they range in ages from 15-21, The Skins play like old pro's, offering a soulful interpretation of rock that today's audiences crave, while proving that age doesn't matter!
Their self-titled self-released EP, The Skins,received rave reviews creating buzz from countless blogs, radio stations and labels. Their first in-studio music video recorded by Wreckroom Records (Brainchild of actor Adrian Grenier) received over 10,000 views in its first week on youtube and continues its steady rise each day (http://wreckroom.tv/).
Since forming in 2012, The Skins have played two sold out tours supporting the UK band The Heavy, they blew audiences away at this summer's Afro Punk festival and were fan favorites at both the 2013 CMJ and SXSW festivals. The Skins’ licensing work has included the use for the Australian world open on ESPN and Cinemax, which has licensed the song “Dead Hands” (off of their upcoming project) for an eight-week ad campaign.
The Skins just signed a major label record deal with American Recordings and are currently working on their next release. If you are fortunate enough to catch one of their live performances, get ready to be blown away and save your ticket so you can prove that you saw them before they blew up.
