‘Hole In My Soul’ Stu E Skinner 30th August 2018

‘Hole In My Soul’ is  Stu’s first release from  his third, currently untitled album.He plans to release songs at intervals,culminating in the release of the album at the end of 2018.

This is a stunning track,tightly contained within a driving,repetitive guitar sound that becomes searing in its intensity. One of Stu’s great strengths is his ability to share unflinching personal lyrics, facing down all the emotional debris left behind in the aftermath of a lost relationship. Later in the song, more subtle guitar strokes and harmonies add a  contrast underpinning the balance and perfect judgement of where to add the light and shade that the song requires, so it doesn’t tip over into maudlin self pity.It’s a fine line and it takes skill to make it work which it does and in the process,reveals Stu as a master of his craft.

    Thanks for taking the time to listen and write a wonderful review.
    I am really pleased you like it.
    Must be exciting having a new area to explore and a new group of musicians to discover.
    I will definitely send you more material as the rest of the album gets sorted.

    Thanks again
