Positive and passionate about life, is the best way of describing GRAMMY Award winner Skip Martin – lead vocalist, trumpet player, songwriter and producer…

To date Skip has entertained millions of people around the world as lead vocalist for both Kool & the Gang (1987-2007) and for The Dazz Band (which won them a GRAMMY Award for the song “Let It Whip”).

Other achievements include Platinum & Gold Records recipient with the two major recording groups, a current total of twenty-nine albums (seven with Kool & the Gang and fourteen with The Dazz Band), MOBO Awards recipient, R&B Song of the Year recipient, six consecutive Top 100 albums, two Top 100 singles and producer of pop, R&B and jazz albums to name a few.

His tenor voice has a warm eclectic style developed through the years under the guise of maestro Stevie Wonder. Skip lists Miles Davis, Sammy Davis and Donny Hathaway as major influences on his musical development.

Skip’s love of jazz started at the age of eleven, and was enhanced when he won “Outstanding
Trumpet Soloist” at the Monterey Jazz Festival whilst in high school. His first solo jazz CD, ‘Miles
High’ features Ronnie Laws, Wayman Tisdale, Al McKay, Rickey Lawson and Bruce Conte.  His current jazz CD ‘Formal Dining’ features Tom Schuman of Spyro Gyro.

Skip is also involved in three all star bands featuring the lead singers of top selling bands performing as one band - from the classic rock era - Starship & Friends (Starship’s Mickey Thomas, Survivor’s Jimi Jamison and Toto’s Bobby Kimball …) as well as Rock & Pop Masters (Larry Hoppen - Orleans, Joe Bouchard - Blue Oyster Cult, and Alex Ligertwood - Santana...) and from the funk era - Masters of Funk (ConFunkShun’s Michael Cooper, Bar-Kays’ Larry Dodson, Ohio Player’s Sugarfoot…) to name a few.

Hit songs performed by Skip include Let It Whip, Get Down On It, Jungle Boogie, Celebration, and Ladies Night.
