Biography

(May 1998 – present)

SKAMP are a perfect example of the quality music that is storming out of the new EU countries. Producer Viktoras Diawara aka Vee, singer / lyricist Erica Jennings & rapper Vilius Alesius (willux) teamed up to bring us finely crafted, thoughtful lyrics and catchy melodies.

A delicious cocktail blending well together, Vilius grew up in Lithuania; Erica studied singing and dance in her hometown of Dublin and Vee was raised in Mali by artistic parents. Though most of their lyrics are in English, the trio have released tracks mixing in French, German, Lithuanian, Russian & Bambara.

SKAMP burst onto the Lithuanian music scene in May 1998 with a hip-hop cover version of George Gershwin’’s “Summertime” mixing the summer classic with french and lithuanian rap. The song shot straight to the top of the charts proving that their blend of cultural and musical styles worked. Much success, many hits, late-nights, tours and fans followed. Since then, the group have gone on to release 6 albums, (they’ ve sold over 80,000 units) and they’ve set up their own record company (Tabami Records). SKAMP are today one of the most respected live bands in the Baltics having won a long list of music awards along the way. They have also supported acts such as: The Black Eyed Peas, Macy Gray, Reamonn, Robert Plant, Wheatus, The Bomfunk MCs and many more.

Since 2003 Skamp have started working with several established producers from the UK & the US (Oliver Leiber & Dave Gamson, Jez Coad, Stuart Brown, Jon Kingsley Hall and George Stewart). Thanks to those collaborations SKAMP’S fifth studio album “Reach”, made in London & Wales, is a solid pop rock creation.
