New Live Video for “Rag Doll”

I got together with some friends at Singing Serpent Studios on January 5th for pizza and Ninkasi to film a live video of “Rag Doll” for NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest. We used my grandmother’s 100 year old desk for our performance, and had a lovely group of musicians come together to bring the song to life. Thank you to Hoopla EIO for the video! Tell us what you think!

Hear Hear Music: Artist to Watch

“It’s so rare to stumble upon a singer-songwriter with such a rich textured voice as Gayle Skidmore. Such voice is a warm layering of the folk of Anais Mitchell coupled with the stinging depth of Amanda Shires, one perfectly worthy of two songs as varied as those she just released: “Rag Doll” and “Barrel, Trigger, Gun.” As a direct follow-up to her latest, a full-length LP and coloring book combo called Sleeping Bear, Skidmore — a six-time San Diego Music Award nominee….”

Facebook Japan

I’m happy to announce that a song I wrote for Facebook Japan is now airing on a TV commercial in Japan. The commercial is a sweet montage of moments with friends and family. I’m very proud of the song that I composed with Brandon O’Connell of Singing Serpent. It has been delightful to work with the composers and producers at Singing Serpent and it’s been a welcome challenge for me to grow as a composer. I have been learning a lot about how to approach music from a different angle, and have had the opportunity to play around with genres that I would most likely have ignored. The environment in a jingle house is infinitely more fast-paced than what I have experienced with my last sixteen independent releases, and it’s really just a completely different animal. Touring in Japan has always been a goal of mine, and I am hoping this will bring me one step closer. If you have friends in Japan, tell them to keep an eye/ear out for our commercial!
