‘Inside’, 1994

‘Inside’ made Stiltskin a worldwide name after it featured in an extremely successful advertising campaign for Levi’s jeans. Written by Peter Lawlor, who believed he had a hit song on his hands, he convinced the clothing company to use it to soundtrack one of their adverts. Auditions were then held to assemble the band that would front the song, and the successful candidates became Stiltskin. They released a debut album, The Mind’s Eye (1995), before splitting two years later during the recording of their second. One of the original members now leads a new line-up under the same name, and has recorded a new album, She (2006).
