Still working on that hot first release.



Forged by musical soulmates Ryan Mowrey and Brayden Wiggins, The Skariginals was created to deliver a sonic adventure, transporting every listener to their own private beach party filled with laughter, love and good times. They're here to make you dance, sing along and just be yourself whether you're listening to their records or experiencing one of their high-energy live shows. Whether you play their songs for your three year old niece, your eighty year old grandma or your angsty thirteen year old son, they will all find something to enjoy. The Skariginals invite everyone to become part of their family of Skarigineers, make some friends and ultimately celebrate the joys of life through music. 

Ska afficienado Erin White praises, “Seeing the Skariginals perform live is fun and lively for everyone, even those who have never heard their music. They were born to entertain, and are fantastic crowd-pleasers!”
Drawing from their talented pools of fellow USC and Cal Poly Pomona music students, Brayden and Ryan assembled a team of the most fun-loving dudes to complete their roster and bring their music to life. The Skariginals quickly gained momentum after winning 3rd place at their very first show and Battle of the Bands and more shows and an EP were soon in demand. They went to work immediately on their debut EP “Part of Your Balanced Breakfast”. The Skariginals tirelessly worked to develop their music and fan-oriented culture for the enjoyment of everyone!

After releasing "Part of Your Balanced Breakfast", things started moving fast for The Skariginals! Quickly they booked up gigs for the remainder of 2013 throughout Southern California, received airplay on ska radio shows around the world, and they gained the attention of the one and only Tazy Phillips of Ska Parade reaching #1 on his radio show multiple times, playing at his birthday show, and earning the #4 spot on the top 50 songs of 2013 with "Magic of the Moment".

The Skariginals released their first music video to rave reviews in January 2014 and then released a collaboration with Youtube star, Drew Tabor, a cover of No Doubt’s “Underneath It All” (which continues to reach the top 5 on Ska Parade weekly) with a music video. They won the LA Times Festival of Books Inspire Us contest and were featured on the Kevin Says stage at the California dates on Warped Tour this year!
