Welcome...make yourselves comfortable. Let me tell you a story or two.
A wiser man than I once said, when telling a story, stick to what you know. In my case, that would mean for example:
A love gone seperate ways, seeing the universe in a child's eyes, Dilemmas, doubts and decisions. A story of lonely desperation, the terror an innocent young man must feel upon entering the surreal world of the big city. What it's like for one young at heart watching his skin wrinkle. Last summers love. I can tell you stories of the struggles between a father and his son, either as the father or the son.
If it sounds confusing, it's only because it is. I've been inspired by angels and demons alike. Let me introduce you to them. If you don't already know them.
"I just followed my horn."
Throughout Skip's whole life, the trumpet seemed to lead him. In fact, Skip's first love saved his life more than once. On his debut album Old Enough to Know Better, Skip tells some of the tales that come out of humanities' lost and found.
In 1983 Skip was sent to Berlin with the U.S. Army Band and fell in love...with Berlin. He's been on the scene ever since, playing for everyone from Jocelyn B. Smith to Harald Juhnke. No matter if he's in the musical theaters or hittin' it with the Zöllner, Mousse T., Disco Inferno, the Savoy Dance Orchestra or his own band 9LIVES, Skips performance skills make any stage come alive. He sings about sadness, obsession, anger, desperation, joy, experience in the form of gray hair, Love, dialogues and of course that last item in Pandora's box, Hope.
Old Enough to Know Better is like people that have stories to tell: intense and gripping, diverse and exciting! Grown up Grooves.
