Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to John Skipp. I discovered this artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the uniqueness of his style.
We are faced with a very eclectic artist who has a very interesting compositional style. In fact, his music contains elements of the past mixed with modern sounds.
It is precisely this mixture of influences that makes it difficult to label John Skipp’s music.
This artist was brave enough to follow his instincts and to create a musical path never traveled before.
All the songs on this album are solid and follow a common thread that makes the whole work very coherent.
The production is good and the execution flawless. A very fascinating artist that I recommend everyone to go and listen to.
The Antidote to Fear is John Skipp’s Album Out Now!
Innovative and Unique!
John Skipp is a New York Times bestselling subversive horror novelist (THE LIGHT AT THE END), anthologist (BOOK OF THE DEAD, which started the modern zombie literary craze), and filmmaker (TALES OF HALLOWEEN) who just released one new album of trippy soundtrack-flavored instrumentals (CRY ME A RAINBOW) and has a new album of wildly-eclectic genre-spanning songs dropping next week (THE ANTIDOTE TO FEAR). He sings, plays all the instruments (guitar, bass, piano, organ, synths, percussion), and programs the drums on Garageband. On the lead track on ANTIDOTE TO FEAR, “Don’t Run When the Devil Comes”, Los Angeles-based jazz monster Gavin Templeton plays baritone sax.
