Skinny Blue (Thys Wallwork) is a Blues-Rock singer/songwriter with life experience on three continents, and a soul steeped in American rock and roll. Born in South Africa, raised in Hong Kong, and has spent most of the past 25 years in the Pacific Northwest. Because of his travels, he has a wide range of musical and cultural influences.
“I remember sitting in the kitchen eating breakfast with my dad as a kid,” Wallwork remembers. “He’d put on a record, vinyl, John Cougar Melloncamp or Bruce Springsteen, or Jackson Browne, and he’d say ‘Son, that’s America.’ I was 9 and I still remember that.”
Those memories fueled the tracks added to I’m All Right, Skinny Blue’s second full-length album, which takes listeners through situations in American life that we can all relate to: love, loss, and survival.
“I wanted to make sure,” Wallwork says, “to make an old-school album for this generation. This is an old-school way to consume music. I want people to listen to this album front to back and be able to say I heard variety, I learned something. There’s an ebb and a flow to it almost like a I’ve been to a live show.”
