“I’ve definitely lived. If we sound much older than we are it’s because we have done the rounds, but just in different fields of life” – Ryan Johnston, Skinny Living.
However, their story isn’t one of rags to riches so much as 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, the Isley Brothers and Paolo Nutini – will out. As it is doing, with a timeless, gentle beauty and lyrical wisdom far beyond the band’s years.
The exquisite and ever-so-slightly haunted vocal in the midst of it all belongs to Front man, born in Belfast to a Catholic mother from the Republican area and a Protestant father from the other side of town. Their polar opposite backgrounds meant a family move to Bangor, Ryan said “this definitely affected who I am, and maybe made me think more, about things than I otherwise would have.
