Jack Skuller, despite his youth, could certainly be viewed as music industry veteran. The prodigious talent released his first single at the age of 14 on Bar/None Records, setting the stage for an authentic rock and roll upbringing. Radio Disney took notice and sponsored a 15 city tour garnering the of attention of outlets from Consequence of Sound to Teen Vogue to American Songwriter . Skuller’s songwriting and musicianship was further recognized by the Songwriters Hall of Fame who awarded him the 2014 Holly Prize in tribute to the legacy of Buddy Holly.
After closing that chapter of his life, Skuller is ready to make a new debut in music through his latest project, The Skullers . Channeling a powerful blend of blues-soaked modern rock with a rockabilly soul, the band is now gearing up to release a new EP, Meet The Skullers on September 22, 2017.
Following the release of their debut single, “Can We Do That Again,” The Skullers entered the studio this past spring with four time GRAMMY nominated producer Joel Hamilton (The Black Keys, Highly Suspect, Pretty Lights, Tom Waits). The resulting EP opens with an up-tempo rock burner, “Meet Me in Memphis,” an ode to letting loose. Meet The Skullers goes on to showcase the breadth of the band’s eclectic influences and stylings with cuts like “Eyes Open” “Pressure Face” and “Peace With You” expanding upon their pure rock center point.
The Skullers were recently featured as the Jersey Rock Video Of The Week on WRAT 95.9 Radio.
PopMatters In spite of his age, singer, guitarist, and harmonicist Jack Skuller fronts his namesake band the Skullers with all of the verve of a veteran who’s been at it for decades. Meet the Skullers, comes with a fiery, bluesy sentiment that feels like an assemblage of music well beyond their years.
Pancakes and Whiskey "a proper blues-stomping backbeat and righteous harmonica, “Pressure Face,” wastes no time in getting to the point, which is to rock your face off. With silky smooth and clear lyrics, the tune ebbs and flows perfectly with memorable and soaring choruses all while the churning guitars never stop. Paired with the straight forward, but fantastically-spastic videography, this makes for a solid video that you’ll be playing over and over."
The Knockturnal And rock they did, blowing up the intimate Maxwell’s stage (so intimate Skuller stepped right off it and into the audience at one point). The music is hard pop rock with rockabilly leanings and a somehow cool, honest 80’s vibe to it; Skuller was the consummate showman, playing guitar, harmonica, and taking a break to toss a t-shirt into the crowd.
another whisky for mister bukowski: "NUGGET OF THE DAY – an avalanche of riffs very heavy and rock well. No quick measure, it goes fast, very quickly, it is a universal human comet. The band mixes rock and blues. It's really good and I really want to listen to more."
Speak Into My Good Eye: debut EP, Meet The Skullers, with single “Meet Me In Memphis” leading the charge. The track is a great initial statement as The Skullers ride high swaggering over smokey blues-rock riffing.

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”
