Who is Skinnytubs?
Drawing from his Nashville roots, singer songwriter, producer, film composer and performer Andy Tubman, aka Skinnytubs, creates lilting melodies and sensual grooves which captivate with warm intimacy. Songs such as “Chill” from the 2016 Keith Gattis produced album, Sea of Sin, evoke the sounds of Jeff Buckley and Ray LaMontagne with emotional spellbinding and stunning simplicity. In addition, Tubman’s experience as a licensed music therapist working in psychiatric hospitals was the inspirational backdrop for his song, Quiet Inside, from the film, The Jacket starring Adrien Brody and Keira Knightley.
A cofounding member of the LA based groove band, The Jane Does, Tubman now prepares for his self-produced and soon-to-be-released solo album, Ache For Strange. With a diverse collaborative cast including Dennis Hamm of Thundercat (keys and synth), Gus Seyffert of Beck, Adele(Bass), and James King of Fitz and the Tantrums (flute), Ache For Strange is a down-tempo soul pop masterwork that woos listeners into melancholy rapture.
