The Buffalo Skinners Short Info

The Buffalo Skinners are a songwriting collective based in Sheffield.

Their music stems from a shared passion for songwriting and singing in harmony. Kieran Thorpe plays Fender Rhodes Keyboard, James Nicholls the Violin, Peter Seccombe the Guitar, Miles Stapleton the Drums and Robbie Thompson, Bass. The band draw influence from 60’s Rock n Roll, Folk, Blues and whatever else they’ve been listening to recently.

Over the past six years the boys have shared highs and lows, personal space, and an ex-postal van across England, America and France. Most importantly they have shared their songs, with anyone willing to listen. Bob Harris, Steve Lamacq, Cerys Matthews, Janice Long and Dermot O’Leary have all been among them, and have in turn all played tracks from the first two albums on BBC Radio. This has led to endless festival appearances across the UK including Glastonbury, BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park, Deer Shed, Boomtown Fair, Wilderness, Tramlines, Camp Bestival…

2016 sees The Buffalo Skinners set to release a third album produced by the critically acclaimed Colin Elliot (Richard Hawley, Slow Club, Kylie Minogue)

"They just got the (Hyde Park) crowd going and had a roaring reception. Astonishing."
- Janice Long, BBC Radio 2

"Their music is painted vividly across a broad canvas, using a palette that draws easily from traditional folk and rock’n’roll"
-God Is In the TV

"Awash with talent"
- The Sun

"Fantastic"
- Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
