Hailing from New York, singer-songwriter Skizzy Mars is best known for his unique sultry vocals within a pop/R&B soundscape — touching on all things life has to offer. And those things aren’t always positive. Skizzy’s vulnerability and honesty in his own journey with addictions, fears and expectations is what fans love most, a layer of realness and authenticity that is much appreciated. This year, Skizzy unleashed his full-length debut titled Free Skizzy Mars, a 13-track project that showcases his perspective and wisdom on the state of hip-hop. He says, “I’m free from caring about what everybody thinks of me all the time. I’ve detached myself from results and focused on the process. I just want to deliver the best music possible.” 

Skinny Mars plays with Yoshi Flower and Grady at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, October 30 at the Roxy.
