Forever defying categories & notions of the standard human work ethic, Skerik has been brewing worldwide jazz/rock/funk/electronic/avant-saxophonic mayhem since his emergence from Seattle in the late 1980s, carving out an enormous & stupefyingly diverse body of work that remains in restless development (day by day, hour by hour, second by second). A saxophonist by trade & border-destroyer by nature, absorbing anything that carries the whiff of inspiration & sincerity, ensuring that all aspects of his output reflect that same good faith. It is the Skerik way, and it has served him (and us) well.
A founding member of Critters Buggin, Garage a Trois, Tuatara, Les Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog Brigade, Crack Sabbath, The Dead Kenny Gs & countless other legendary ensembles, his extraordinary career has also seen live & recorded appearances with Roger Waters, Mad Season, Pearl Jam, Primus, REM, Fred Wesley, The Headhunters, The Meters, Ani DiFranco & many many more.
All totaled, Skerik has contributed to more than 200 records as a saxophonist and/or keyboardist. His music has seen worldwide placement in feature films, independent films, TV shows, theater & dance pieces. He continues to make Seattle his primary home (now owning & operating his own studio in the city), and he continues to regularly tour around the world with his ever-expanding cast of collaborators & new things to do.
