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.

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”.
