Skippy Gonzalez is a 17-year-old singer-songwriter hailing from Haslemere, Surrey. When not performing with his group ‘Skippy and the Smokers,’ he opts for a more stripped-back and acoustic version of his songs and accompanies his vocals with either guitar or piano. He started to learn the guitar at the age of 10 and grew up listening to the likes of Oasis, The Rolling Stones and The Kinks. His eclectic taste in music has been influenced by his Dad and was fully exposed when, at the tender age of 11, he asked his guitar teacher to tab Bob Marley’s ‘Redemption Song’ for him.

With a combination of poetic and intricate guitar picking, his songs conjure up a strong sense of nostalgia and warmth. He has penned lyrics for several of the songs of his good friends and fellow musicians Harry Whitty and Guy Sharpe. His main inspirations include the likes of George Harrison, Mac DeMarco, Bon Iver and The Smiths.
