Biography

Lead vocalist and leader of the band, “Skee”, has been captivating audiences since 1997, balancing vintage influences with contemporary exploration. He gained early experience playing with childhood friends, Darren Goldstein (Yellow Red Sparks) and Rami Gabriel (daddad). In recent years he has honed his skills while touring the West Coast and mid-west, traveling as far as Costa Rica to serenade listeners with nothing but a cool croon and guileless guitar. Backed by his band, The Motion Detectors, the upbeat, bluesy, foot-tapping honky-tonk music radiates an intensely beatific aura. On stage, Skee transforms himself into a perpetually grinning musical guru for his audience as his band brings some down-home, soul-warming funk.

In both 2010 and 2011 he was recognized by the Orange County Music Awards Committee with a nomination for Best Acoustic Artist and Best Folk Artist in 2011.
