‘Whitman Cant Jump’ was written, composed, produced and mixed by Skipp Whitman .. a Brookline MA native who spent the last 5 years in New York City and is currently in Los Angeles CA.
Most songs feature live bass lines written and performed by Ayal Tsubery (who performed with Skipp in New York City in clubs such as The Delancey, Pianos, Arlene’s Grocery, Spike Hill, Sidewalk Café, The Grand Victory, and more.
‘Grown Up,’ features a chorus written and performed by Niles Mason (David Guetta, Afrojack) – who coincidentally used to compete with Skipp in dance contests in middle school.
‘Hi School’ – a song about (mainly) just that, features cuts by Statik Selektah.
The content of the album is generally biographical and deals with topics such as ‘growing up,’ having no game (both on the court and with girls see: ‘game.’), the loss of friends, the pursuits of love, the experience of finding yourself some place you thought you would never be, and more.
The album was mixed by Skipp in New York City and mastered by Bob Nash at Wonka Sound in Lowell, MA. It was released on iTunes on July 8th, 2014 and is available as well on bandcamp (http://www.whitmancantjump.bandcamp.com) as well as spotify, amazon and a host of other vendors and sites.
The first release from ‘Whitman Cant Jump,’ – a song by the same name, was released earlier this year as a single on iTunes with a video shot by Shawn Ashley Collins (Three21 Media). (http://vimeo.com/89854904)
