Skuve are an online collaboration from around the world. They formed in 2016, although they have never met each other and only communicate by email. They're Mack, Davv and BK, as well as occasional member Ben. Davv's daughter created an identity for them and they became, and remain cartoon characters.
Mack is the vocalist and creator of melodies and is the main mix engineer. He lives in a small town in Sweden but is not the Swedish Chef from the Muppets
BK writes the lyrics and he remains the only band member with a beard. Legend says he has had the beard since the age of 4. He's from across the pond in USA
Davv puts the music together. He's from the UK and doesn't drive a Ferrari. He has a fear of Sweden, beards and ping-pong ball jugglers.
Ben is also from UK and is the baby of the group. He does some of the mixing and plays some additional instruments. In his spare time, Ben juggles ping-pong balls
The band's third album, "Chameleon" is 12 tracks of country rocking pop music. The album was meant to be released in late 2018 but circumstances meant that it had to be put on hold indefinitely. The band feel that this is their best album to date and highlights the diverse genres of music that they dip their toes in, a trait that earned them the nickname "musical chameleons" - a term that gave the album its name.

The band had hoped to make Chameleon their second album but because of the obstacles the band faced in finishing it, they decided to put "Deviate" together. It was made up of songs that didn't really fit on either of the planned albums.
"Deviate" was a bit of a surprise to us all," says Davv, "we had planned on releasing a completely different album but our circumstances changed - Ben and his wife had a baby and he is currently focusing on his other band 'Murica.'
"The idea behind Deviate was to take the listener through musical decades and hopefully this means that there's something for everyone on this album!"
The debut album burst on the scene in June 2018. Ego, named so because so many of the songs on the album contained the word. It was described as a "blend of Bon Jovi-ish arena rock with country pop influences... 15 songs worth of impressive and accomplished diversity. There are big rockers, funky numbers, country tunes with all the slide guitar you can have, and gentle ballads"
