The journey started long ago as a youth in 1996, learning to play music growing up in the neighborhoods of southern California. With so much to learn, see, live and experience under the sun, Its no wonder that the sound pouring through the speakers feels like a warm, sunny California day.
Like many artists on the musical journey, Skunkdub has a history full of bands and projects (Inhale, Secret Trees, Natural Heights, StrangerBand) that have helped pave the way to the road he walks today. The creative processes, the influence from a variety of music genres (Rock, Soul, Reggae, Hiphop, funk, R&B, Blues, Ska) and the culture clash of various SoCal lifestyles. All of it, the intoxicating relationships, the everyday struggles with a nine to five, Corrupt government systems and officials, failing educational school systems, and media infused propganda blasting from the radios and televisions sets. All of life’s ups and downs, have helped pave the way to his life long continuous musical journey.
