Wednesday 8 September

Skullcrusher’s show at The Lexington will no longer take place on 1st June, but instead on 8th September 2021. All existing tickets remain valid.


Skullcrusher​ is the project of LA-based songwriter ​Helen Ballentine​.

Ballentine has been playing music for most of her life — piano from age five, guitar since high school — but her songwriting didn’t emerge until later. After moving from her home in upstate New York to Los Angeles to study studio art in college, a trajectory she had been on since she was a teenager, Ballentine quit her full-time gallery job. Suddenly faced with a peculiar freedom, she decided to seriously pursue music for the first time.

Her self-titled EP​ (released ​in 2020 via Secretly Canadian)​ Ballentine offers an airy, intense, and unflinchingly open collection of songs written about – and from – one of life’s in-between grey areas and the subsequent search for identity.
