Adjoa Skinner


Ever wondered why Divas don't play instruments? It's usually because they can't. Adjoa writes, sings, & plays... she's not your average Diva!


Born and raised in New York by musicians she began performing at the age of two. In 2000, Skinner won a highly sought after voice scholarship to the Crane Conservatory, NY. She chose instead to experience the culture and music of East, South and West Africa, where she lived for two years and received the name Adjoa. In 2006, Skinner moved to Los Angeles to pursue her career full-time as a vocalist, songwriter and musician, playing piano, guitar, drums and flute.

She now performs regularly at clubs in Los Angeles including the world famous Viper Room & The Derby, Tangier, The Comedy and Magic Club (where Jay Leno performs weekly), Molly Malones, The Mayan, as well as an ongoing residency every Tuesday night @ Genghis Cohen.

This Spring 2008, she released a Live CD of her weekly performances at Molly Malone's, LA where she had an ongoing residency every Monday for 5 months. Skinner is also recording a studio album, which will be completed in Autumn 2008.
