Jack Skuller and The Skullers

The Skullers play their blues-soaked brand of modern rock and roll with a down-to-the-bone 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 which said “It’s analog, vintage, and cool, but with a sincerity missing from a lot of the ironic throwback recordings of the hipster sphere. We sense a lot of potential in this budding 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.

Tim De Graaw releases ‘Ivory’

After cutting his teeth in the LA music scene, singer/songwriter Tim De Graaw returns to London and announces his debut EP and opening track taken from it. Recorded at Westpoint Studios (UK) and mixed at the legendary Muscle Shoals (USA), ‘Ivory’ is the first track taken from the EP ‘Three Black Roses’ out now on all platforms including iTunes and Spotify.

This one man musical powerhouse has drawn comparisons with John Mayer and The Black Keys due to his knack of blending beautifully constructed vocal melodies with blues-tinged guitar licks. Describing his sound he says: “I wanted to combine my guitar blues influence with my own songwriting style. With lyrics that are truthful, honest and poetic about my fight with depression, struggles in music, and the pitfalls of love”.

‘Ivory’ showcases Tim’s trademark poetic vocals and emotive guitar style all wrapped up in rock solid production from Antwerp based producer Jamie Evans (Reigning Days, Wildwood Kin) who has also recently worked at both Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals and Arlen Studios, Austin. Jamie adds: “The energy and feel he puts into his music is undeniable. His new material is a sure indication that his music is destined to fill the hole in many a record collection.”

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa (half Dutch and raised in the UK), there is definitely an international flavour to Tim’s music. After making his mark on the LA music scene in recent years, Tim now resides back in his spiritual and musical home in London. It was that period in LA where he cut his teeth both as a session guitarist and songwriter, finding major sync success with several TV placements on the hit comedy show Modern Family. Tim has previously co- written with upcoming artists and songwriters such Sarah Walk (Still Frames), Adam Friedman, Charlie Puth, Yori Swart, Pam Sheyne and Rich Jacques. Describing writing on his travels, Tim says: “I am always writing with an honest intention, wherever I go, to capture the moment and time I’m in. It reminds me of who I am and keeps me grounded”.

Keaton Conrad Releases “Waves”

Keaton Conrad is a musical artist known for effectively infusing indie rock with diverse genres, such as house, jazz, and hip-hop. A 17-year-old Kansas native, he is influenced by a wide range of artists including Neon Indian, Coldplay, Bon Iver, and Chet Faker. In addition to his singing and musical abilities, he has received recognition and numerous awards for his songwriting and classical composition skills.

Conrad spent two years as the lead singer and keyboardist in the pop rock cover band ChangeUp, performing around the Kansas City area and building a strong following with fans of all ages. In late 2014, he stepped away to focus on writing and pursue a solo career.

In the midst of self-discovery and growth as an artist, Conrad strengthened his production skills and in 2015 released an original five-song EP, Panic & Blame, which is reminiscent of the 2000s pop rock sound he grew up on.

Waves is Keaton Conrad’s first full-length album and features nine original songs, including the single “Biscayne”. In this release, Keaton influences his indie rock style with anomalous sounds to create an innovative yet comfortable record. Ranging in style from pop rock to hip-hop to ambient, this album is innately diverse. Waves proves to be very intimate for him, pulling from various experiences and influences, and the result is a nine song journey that captures the true soul of this young artist.
