"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, Kendal Calling, BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park, Truck Festival, Boomtown Fair, Wilderness, Tramlines, Camp Bestival
July 2016 saw The Buffalo Skinners release a third album produced by the critically acclaimed Colin Elliot (Richard Hawley, Slow Club, Kylie Minogue) entitled 'Cease Your Dreaming'
"They just got the crowd going and had a roaring reception. Astonishing."

"Their music is painted vividly across a broad canvas, using a palette that draws easily from traditional folk and rock'n'roll"
