After dazzling crowds at SXSW in March, and with sold-out shows in both LA and New York this spring, the enchanting singer-songwriter Skott is returning to North America this summer with three prestigious festival appearances at Wayhome in Ontario (tickets), Lollapalooza in Chicago (tickets) and Osheaga in Montreal (tickets). In addition to these festival dates, the mysterious singer will be supporting Phantogram for two special shows in Buffalo, NY and Millvale, PA. Skott will also be headlining Chicago’s Schuba’s Tavern on August 3rd. For a full list live dates and further information, please visit www.facebook.com/skottmusic
Across the Atlantic, Skott has been busy working on new material set for release throughout the year, along with a highly anticipated full-length album, expected in 2018. In-between writing and studio sessions, the Scandinavian songstress has been busy touring Europe, making appearances at many of the leading music festivals. She is also set to hit the road with MØ this fall.
Skott spent her early years in a remote forest community run by a collection of outcast folk musicians. Together they built a small but supportive network, quite far from the nearest populated city. There, surrounded by nature she thrived, learning to appreciate life without all the distractions associated with living in a city. Largely sequestered from contemporary pop culture, it wasn’t until Skott ventured into the city during her mid-teens that she listened to contemporary music for the first time.
