Off the back of a sold-out UK tour in September, Skinny Living announce an extensive UK and Ireland headline tour for March 2019. The 11-date tour includes dates at Whelan’s – Dublin, King Tuts – Glasgow, The Deaf Institute – Manchester and Omeara – London, to name a few. Ahead of the tour they will play a huge hometown show (1000 capacity) at Warehouse 23, Wakefield on December 21st (on sale now).
Skinny Living’s story is one of struggle, troubling situations and relentless hard graft. It’s also one of synchronicity, chance meetings, and unflinching belief that their glorious acoustic soul – with its echoes of Bill Withers and Paolo Nutini – will out. They are readying the release a new track ’I Still Love You’ in the coming week.
Streaming at over 1million listeners a month across all DSPs, their single ‘Why’ has had over 12+ million streams alone. BBC Radio 1 have supported ‘Why’ and most recent single ‘Fade‘, with multiple daytime plays. The stunning video for their track ‘Let Me In’ has had over 1.8m+ on YouTube. It features two dancers, one signing the lyrics to the track, resulting in a really stirring performance piece. They performed ‘Why’ on ITV ‘The Weekend’ and ‘Fade’ live on ‘The Box’ TV. They’ve also had music synced on TOWIE and Love Island.
Skinny Living were invited to play live at the YouTube Music launch event earlier this year, one of the few artists in the UK selected to perform. They previously won a YouTube award for MTV cover of the month.
Media support for Skinny Living has come by way of NME, Wonderland, CLASH, Spindle, SBTV, The Mahogany Sessions and many more. They have also featured in two global campaigns with STA Travel. The second saw them travelling the USA playing Sofar Sounds sessions, whilst the journey was documented.
