Bio: via FB


The Skins are an infectious Brooklyn-based rock band consisting of siblings Bayli, Reef, and Kaya Mckeithan, along with friends and dueling guitarists Daisy Spencer and Russell Chell. Although they range in ages from 13-19, The Skins play like old pros, offering a soulful interpretation of rock that today’s audiences crave and proving that age doesn’t matter. As one reviewer puts it, “The SKINS are so amazingly bad ass, everything they do sounds the way you want a hard rock album to sound. It is intimidating, mysterious, sensual and mostly just a glorious expression of the art.”


I had a chance to see The Skins rock it out this year at the 2013 AfroPunk festival but I became personally attached because the lead singe, Bayli Mckeithan has an air about her that is reminiscence of one my favorite 70′s rock singers, the great, Betty Davis. Checkout a few of my favorites songs from The Skins below.
