Skin & Bones is comprised of Taylor Borsuk on guitar, vocals, and suitcase drum with Peter Blackwelder on violin. The Americana duo defined themselves street performing on the salty boardwalk of Venice Beach and continue to grow as musicians as they travel the country. The duo supported Jackie Greene, lead guitarist of the former Black Crowes, on the western leg of his tour. Their well-received E.P. “Ghost in This Town” was released in February, and the momentum is continued with its successor, “Wait No More”. With a sold out record release show at the Hotel Café, and continued positive press Skin & Bones is garnering attention in the Americana music scene. The guys traveled to Nashville TN over summer to record their debut full length record at The Bomb Shelter. The record was produced by Jon Estes (Steelism, John Paul White, Ben Sollee) and mixed by Andrija Tokic (The Alabama Shakes, The Deslondes, Langhorne Slim). Record to be released in 2018.
