Listen to Rollin' Over
Skinny Lister are not your average, modern day, gentrified English folk group. Fronted by Dan Heptinstall and Lorna Thomas; a vocalist with a lusty cackle and flirtatious presence, the London based five-piece hail from across England. Borrowing the nickname from the Lister family, pioneers in the use of anesthetic, the band have grown naturally and organically over the past two years. Yorkshire born songwriter Heptinstall, Lorna’s older brother Max, and long-time shanty singer Sam ‘Mule’ Brace, met some time ago at a folk club in London’s Greenwich area. The arrival of new bassplayer Michael Camino from the shores of Hawaii has taken their stage show to a whole new level!
Signed to LA label Side One Dummy, Skinny Lister recently completed the Vans Warped Tour and swiftly followed it up with a support tour across America with Flogging Molly, winning fans every step of the way.
Described by one journalist as 'like the Pogues, but with better teeth'. Skinny Lister are a force to be reckoned with and their live show is an experience you won't ever forget!
