Today’s TRACK OF THE DAY is LIKE YOU USED TO by SKIP CURTIS
Growing up in the Valley’s, Skip found escapism in writing music.
“I never wanted music to be a way of physically escaping the Valleys. I love them. It was about escaping the stereotype. I was always trying to do something different; playing music and writing songs became my answer. They were and still are, my satisfaction.”
His ambition was to originally write songs for other people, which circumstantially led to him becoming one third of Welsh haze-pop band XY&O.
He now writes songs as a solo performer, in a band and also for other artists.

HOT VOX have raised thousands of pounds for War Child through live gigs and events over the past two years. Now we’re taking RISING online, and with the help of our immensely talented roster of artists, we hope to raise even more vital funds for this valuable cause.
