If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if you put an experienced hypnotherapist and two exuberant teenage boys into a recording studio with a banjo, guitar and a set of drums, well now you can find out! Skram are a Hypno Folk Rock family band who create earthy, upbeat songs and instrumentals that will make your toes tap and your heart sing.
Skram is made up of Darren Marks, a renowned London based hypnotherapist on guitar and vocals and his teenage sons Adam on banjo and Benjamin on drums. Their sound is an eclectic mix of styles, reminiscent at times of Mumford & Sons but also REM as well as embracing many traditional folk and bluegrass elements.
“Lyrically the music has been influenced by my work in hypnotherapy and hypnosis but also very much by my experience as a parent” says Darren. “The idea was to produce songs that both uplift and inspire.”
The touching feedback Skram have received from listeners on their Facebook page and videos shows that this new London band really have something unique and special to offer with their happy, mellow brand of hypnotic folk rock and bluegrass.
