Never miss another 'Alice Russell' show
'...is hugely in demand as a vocalist and has gained an enviable reputation as one of the hottest singers in the UK right now. Renowned for her performances with Bah Samba, TM Juke, Hushti and of course as the mighty, if tiny front woman of The Quantic Soul Orchestra, Alice's lavishly soulful voice is both timeless and up to the minute modern. Whether live or on record, she always performs with her trademark self assurance and sass'- Jazz Cafe, London.

Hello Skinny is the brainchild of drummer Tom Skinner, who's other current involvements include Sons Of Kemet, Mulatu Astatke, Matthew Herbert, Finn Peters and The Owiny Sigoma Band amongst many others.
The project is Skinner's first as bandleader, composer and producer (playing most of the instruments on the album) and sees him exploring areas around and between psych-dub, electronics, downtown jazz and folk stylings.
Tom Skinner takes a collage-like approach to composition, drawing on elements of jazz, electronica and dub, creating potent psychedelic brews and contemporary melodic soundscapes. As an accomplished jazz drummer his music is strongly based in that genre, but as the son of a concert pianist, and a Londoner, he has grown up absorbing the remarkable musical influences that only a city as diverse as London could provide. You can hear the influences of reggae, dub, jungle, bass music, krautrock, film music, "out-there" experimental avant-garde and maybe even TV new themes and Morris dancing in his music.
