Jeff Noller has been the creative force behind the band Skittish for over 10 years. Sprung from the lake country of Minnesota in 2007, Skittish has earned critical acclaim for the Paul Simon meets Arcade Fire blend of bedroom folk-rock.
Choosing the name Skittish was a nod to the kinship and calm Noller has found around animals, and less so around people. The only exceptions being the many talented artists who lend their skills to the songs.
When Skittish signed with Spectra Records in 2013, life on the road became the norm. Years of touring the country made Skittish one of the “can’t miss” acts in the Twin Cities music scene. Industry recognition came with CMJ charting and two Independent Music Award nominations in 2016 for Album and Single of the year.
In 2018, Noller temporarily stepped back from life on the road and went to graduate school in Savannah for film sound.
“Dive bars were replaced with classrooms, and my days started at 8am. Yeah, it was a bit of an adjustment,” Noller says of his time in Savannah.
One thing that didn’t change was the desire to make music. He began using the school’s studio after hours to record songs he had written since arriving in Savannah.
"Music is an instrument of empathy that helps you connect. If I can’t hang out with you in person and spend all night talking tangents, then at least I can reach out with this record.”
For those that are unsure of their place in this world, there will always be Skittish to keep you company.
