Skunk Anansie’s Skin – Supreme Rock Goddesses
You may not recognize the name Deborah Anne Dyer, but you may know her as Skin. The singer has fronted British band Skunk Anansie since 1994, lending her soulful yet somewhat aggressive vocal style for five studio albums.
Although active with Skunk Anansie heavily during the mid-to-late 90s, the band split in 2001, only to reform once again in 2009 to create the albums ‘Wonderlustre’ and ‘Black Traffic.’ Skin has also embarked on a successful solo career, garnering positive reviews for her duel solo releases, ‘Fleshwounds’ and ‘Fake Chemical State.’ The female singer has become a British rock icon for her fantastic vocal style and her trademark short hair and/or shaved head. Skin has also helped break down racial barriers along with gender barriers in rock.
