Song Premiere: Skin & Bones “Wait No More”
November 21, 2016
Today we premiere a new song from California-based duo Skin & Bones. “Wait No More” highlights the spirited interplay of Taylor Borsuk (guitar, vocals, and suitcase drum) and Peter Blackwelder (violin). The pair first met after Blackwelder moved to California from North Carolina and Taylor had returned to the state following three months in Europe. Earlier this year Skin & Bones released an EP, Ghost in This Town, and opened a series of dates for Jackie Greene. In the interim, Borsuk and Blackwelder have continued to build supporters for their contemporary folk music.
Borsuk tells Relix that “Wait No More” is “really a song about the pursuit of freedom. I wasn’t necessarily aware of that when writing it, but it has become very clear to me now. I feel that freedom is a term that means something entirely different to each and every one of us. The thing that remains common is that in those fleeting moments, when you truly feel free, you are absolutely and entirely absorbed in happiness.”
Skin & Bones continue their monthly residency at Santa Barbara’s Seven Bar & Kitchen tonight (and next Monday. November 28) and will appear at Enegren Brewing Company in Moorpark, CA this Wednesday and Sunday (November 23 and 27).
