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 14-19, 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 EP, The Skins, has been receiving rave reviews since its release in January 2012, creating buzz from countless blogs and radio stations. 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/).
The Skins have played two sold out tours supporting the UK band The Heavy, one from New York to Los Angeles and another two-week tour in France. They 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 full-length album) for an eight-week ad campaign.
The Skins have garnered much major and independent label interest lately, so 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 made it big.
