ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Family Man is the culmination of more than forty years of study and planning, and almost three years of nurturing the process of birth. Of course, the process was Skipper's actual life. He was destined to make this album. As a teenager, Skipper would be late for school because he had to listen again, to a new R&B tune he had recently purchased. He fronted a band called 'The Fascinations' that played the local teen scenes during the early years, replicating the styles of James Brown, Tommy Hunt, Jackie Wilson, Jerry Butler and various other artists of the period. Garnering acceptance and popularity while honing his craft, he graduated to a vocal group called 'The Avalons'. This group based on the style of The Platters, was like going from high school to college. Here he practiced harmonies, choreography and, because of the multiple lead vocals, he acquired the eclectic depth of styles he now possesses. Skipper then went on to join 'The Platters', touring the world replicating the magic that the original Platters was famous for and absorbing other styles to create his own.
All of this life experience is what can be found in every track of Family Man. The artistry of the lead vocals, Skipper's life experiences in the collaborations of the original selections and his heartfelt emotions in 'At This Moment' and 'When Something's wrong with My Baby'.
Those that have been privileged to listen to this compilation in its early stages have commented:
It is obvious that Skipper has spent a long time honing his craft;
An interesting mix of songs, with a really fresh approach;
I really like the 'real' feeling. Not engineered to death;
It is like being at a live concert in a really great room. Beautiful.

Family Man will take you through an emotional journey. It will cause you to reflect on your life and relationships. It will ask you to consider the state of our world ecology and it will command you to boogie in your seat. We hope you enjoy listening to this album as much as we enjoyed creating it.
