Who’s The Skinny?

Are they doctors? Butchers perhaps? Or Nuclear Physicists? It might be more accurate to call these trim and dapper gents “Reggae Pharmacists”. They create a sound that pleases both purists and enthusiasts by combining old school reggae and ska grooves with the sultry melodies of classic soul and pop. This is a musical prescription that is sure to soothe and relieve all your aches and pains. Straight out of Montreal, Canada.

In the fall of 2010, Howie and Brian hatched a plan of putting together the band of their dreams. Having played in a number of local bands such as “Take The Boys”, ”Stepper”, and "The Fabulous LoLo", they decided to add another chapter to the already flourishing Montreal ska bible with The Skinny. They have been the talk of the town since the release of their first EP in 2012 entitled “Cut the Fat” where you can hear it featured on college and internet radio as well as from the speakers of many passing cars.

The Skinny has shared the stage with several Montreal ska and reggae favourites such as "The Fundamentals", and "Danny Rebel and the KGB", as well as having headlined their own showcases. Now that their first album is complete, they plan on touring extensively to bring their brand of “Musical Medication” to the masses. Keep an ear out for when the The Skinny comes to your town!
