The Skullers play their blues-soaked brand of modern rock and roll with a rockabilly soul. Hook-filled original tunes written by singer/songwriter/guitarist Jack Skuller could share a playlist with such bands as Black Keys, London Souls or the UK’s Hidden Charms. Live shows prove the band is just as comfortable covering a Little Walters blues swamp as they are playing classic punk from Richard Hell.
Frontman Jack Skuller’s songwriting and musicianship was recognized by the Songwriters Hall of Fame who awarded him the 2014 Holly Prize in tribute to the legacy of Buddy Holly. Jack’s 7” single debut at age 14 on indie label Bar/None Records set the stage for an authentic rock and roll teen life. Radio Disney took notice and sponsored a 15 city tour. Press paid attention as well with stories in the New York Post, Time Out New York, The Deli NYC, Teen Vogue and American Songwriter.
Jack Skuller’s past few solo singles on Mint 400 Records have received regular rotation on college radio. It’s only a matter of time before The Skullers become college radio staples.
The Skullers enter the studio this spring with four time GRAMMY nominated producer Joel Hamilton to record a debut EP planned for release on indie label Mint 400 Records in September 2017. Hamilton has worked with the Black Keys, Highly Suspect, Pretty Lights and Tom Waits among many others.
The Skullers were recently featured as the Jersey Rock Video Of The Week on WRAT 95.9 Radio.
NJ Racket: "“Can We Do That Again” is a modern rockabilly fusion, exhibiting a tailor-fitted roughness with a blues-pop swing.”
Indie Buddie: "a lime soda indie pop track, refreshingly smooth with zesty spritz of guitar. Elastic rumbling bass drives the track while soft punchy drums and clap along feature keep this track bouncy and animated. Creamy effortlessly cool vocals glide through the surf friendly catchy track."
Power Popaholic: "The debut single “Can We Do That Again” is a sharp bit of guitar pop”
Indie Bands Blog: "A blend of blues, dance and solid rock enables The Skullers, in Can We Do That Again, to deliver a track that has both a beguiling raggedy edged gruffness to it and a thundering beat”
