Skin in 2011
Skin (Deborah Anne Dyer, born 1967) is a singer, lead vocalist of the band Skunk Anansie.

She was born and brought up in Brixton [1]. She studied Interior Design at Teesside University in Middlesbrough.

“I see myself as an artist more than a musician, not only because I play guitar worse than a deaf camel, but because being in a band has always required a lot more skills than just songwriting and singing.”[2]

Skin is openly bisexual.[3]

Skin was ranked number 94 in the Pride Power List 2011.[4]
