Tom Skinner (he / him / his) Voices of Bishara, released 4th November 2022 on Brownswood Recordings / International Anthem

Drummer and producer Tom Skinner (The Smile, Sons of Kemet) announces this lean and beautiful mini-album, in which he edited a starry recording session into a sonorous, tuff and beguiling new shape.

The title of Tom Skinner’s first release under his own name is a reference to cellist Abdul Wadud’s ultra-rare 1978 solo album ‘By Myself’, which Skinner listened to repeatedly during lockdown. Wadud’s album was privately pressed on his own label, Bisharra, and whilst Skinner’s title uses the more conventional spelling of this common Arabic name, they both have the same intention or meaning: it translates as ‘good news’, or ‘the bringer of good news’.
