David Arthur Skinner

Jazz pianist and composer. I specialise in my personal approach to stride piano and swing jazz, using unusual rhythms, time signatures and harmonies, and have released two solo piano CDs in this genre, “Diagonal Jazz” and “Cubistic Boogie”.

I work as a bandleader, organising music for all occasions. I also play electric keyboards, synth, electronic percussion, and guitar. I've been a professional musician since 2001.

I've played a lot of gigs: extensively in northern England 2000-04; most of the major towns and cities in Norway, as well as several tours in Japan (6 times), Finland, and various jazz festivals in Norway, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, Germany and Greece.
