Skinny Living’s story is one of struggle, troubling situations and relentless hard graft. It’s also one of synchronicity, chance meetings, and the unflinching belief that their glorious indie soul music will reach the audience it deserves.Echoing Bill Withers, Van Morrison, The Isley Brothers and Bobby Caldwell, their songs shimmer with a timeless, gentle beauty, exquisite vocal harmonies and a lyrical wisdom that inspires optimism and reflection in equal measure.The band’s sound is defined by two acoustic guitars and vocal harmonies delivered by Wakefield natives Will Booth and Danny Hepworth, while the exquisite and ever-so-slightly haunted vocal and lyricism in the midst of it all belongs to frontman Ryan Johnston, 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 before Ryan later moved to England, where he met Will and Danny at an open mic night and formed the band.“Skinny Living is a term that describes the financial reality and lifestyle of the working class. Hard graft on a low income with a lust for life, passion for family and an optimistic attitude about the future.”With over 85 million streams worldwide, Skinny Living will be releasing their debut album ‘Day by Day’ on October 11th 2024.In the band’s own words, “‘Day by Day’ moves through the emotions of life. Lyrically, it shines a light on relationships between family and close friends, those we dedicate our care and time to. It deals with the triumphs and mistakes we make along the way and focuses on the power we all have as individuals to pull through when times get hard, both alone and together. Musically, this album is strongly influenced by soul music, and draws inspiration from timeless indie, folk, pop, RnB and alternative music.”
