Realities, the first solo project released from the Madison, Wisconsin artist and Young Vet member, Skis

Published

on

While taking over seven months to write and record the album, Skis was able to truly focus on his Realities creating what he described as, “a walk through the toughest parts of real life to come out in a new, brighter, more positive world”. In an Instagram post, he mentioned the entire process from start to finish helped to realign his mind with reality and his goals and also voiced belief that we, the listeners, could ‘find a beacon of hope in [our] lives’ too through the music. Skis also said he had recorded a few more songs than the seven that make-up the project but concluded that the songs that were chosen were thoroughly processed and carefully selected by himself and members of the group he is apart of, Young Vets. This is the second solo project released by YV, it follows that of T the Pharaoh’s ‘Pharaoh Files’, released in August 2019.

Highlighted Songs:

Perfect Imperfections

“Life ain’t always clear cut, you feel?” This song captures the raw feeling of just not being good enough or where you want to be in life. Skis tells us of how he has been bothered by different facets of life that at various points have gained a significant amount of control, blurring his daily thoughts. In reality these ­­­­imperfections are insignificant but, in the moment, they mean everything. It is a battle between staying aligned with oneself and choosing what to divert attention towards.

All Night All Day

Working out? Need some motivation? This catchy, high energy song is easy to catch the rhythm of. Lyrically, All Night All Day focuses on that constant grind, the one needed to improve your situation and change your life. While preaching work ethic and trusting the process, Skis still reminds us to remain humble and blessed. He told us this track embodied his daily mindset which has helped to keep him focused and achieving his goals.

Who is Skis? – Skis is a 21-year-old musician out of Wisconsin. His sound has been ever-evolving, beginning as more of a boom-bat hip-hop artist and transitioning through rap and harder trap beats, lo-fi and even pop-like beats, as well as experimentation with autotune and singing. He provided a range of influences starting at Future, Kanye West, and OutKast, and stretching to Bob Marley, Prince, and even the Doors. His love for music started early as he grew up playing piano and a variety of other instruments. In middle and high school, he developed a love for poetry which turned into writing music over different beats and the piano. He recorded his first song, a ‘No Role Modelz’ remix, off of his phone in 2015, which was the first of a few tracks he dropped on Soundcloud. It wasn’t until 2018 that Skis began creating music again, this time with a few long-time friends in a group called Young Vets. The quartet has been together for the past two years now having done around 20 live shows, releasing three group albums, and a plethora of singles. Skis’ music is out on every streaming platform you listen to music on.

He is repped by APA.

“Arthur,” the iconic animated children’s series about an lovable aardvark, is finishing after its 25th season.

The longest-running children’s animated series in the history of American TV, “Arthur” will end on PBS Kids, with its last season launching in winter 2022.

Unique show developer Kathy Waugh broke the news in a meeting on the Finding DW webcast with voice actor Jason Szwimmer.

“‘Arthur’ is no longer in production. We had our wrap party two years ago,” Waugh told Szwimmer. “I think [PBS] made a mistake, and I think ‘Arthur’ should come back and I’m know I’m not alone in thinking they made a mistake. I don’t know if it was a ratings issue or if it felt like it needed to be retired. To me, it felt evergreen, like it was never going to end but it did end, we finished the last episode [of] Season 25 two years ago.”

Waugh developed the series, which originally circulated in 1996, from the books by Marc Brown, who made the character in 1976.

“Arthur” executive producer Carol Greenwald affirmed the news to Variety in an articulation, saying, “‘Arthur’ is the longest-running kids animated series in history and is known for teaching kindness, empathy and inclusion through many groundbreaking moments to generations of viewers. In the winter of 2022, the 25th and final season of ‘Arthur’ will debut. ‘Arthur’ will continue to be available on PBS Kids for years to come. Producer GBH and PBS Kids are continuing to work together on additional ‘Arthur’ content, sharing the lessons of Arthur and his friends in new ways.”

All through its 25-year run with more than 240 episodes, the “Arthur” franchise has extended to music, video games, toys and social media memes. The series has won four Emmys and the George Foster Peabody Award.
