Described as "warm, wonderful, thoughtful music" and "a band you would really enjoy listening to at a festival with a beer", Mudskipper's absorbing compositions will take you through a dynamic musical journey. In their softer numbers, there is a backdrop of beautiful harmonies that weave through powerful and ethereal singing. Sometimes likened to Nick Drake, their influences of contemporary and progressive folk come through strongly. Indie rock, pop, and punk influences often entail a switch to more percussive cello, strummed guitar and emotional vocal explosion for more lively songs that will get your foot tapping.
Appearances at various venues and festivals in and around Exeter, coupled with local radio play and interviews have seen them building a reputation as one of South West England's acoustic acts to watch. They released their debut album Replacing the Stone in December 2015. FATEA describes it as "an enthralling debut album with so many layers you discover something new on every listen".
