When we heard about a young singer being compared to Buddy Holly, we knew we had to check him out. 18-year-old New York native Jack Skuller is being hailed as both “a mini Jack White” and a “modern day Buddy Holly,” and is a gifted singer-songwriter who is skilled on both guitar and harmonica. We love his classic rockabilly sound. Listen below!
Jack Skuller has racked up quite the impressive resume so far, which includes releasing an acclaimed 7″ at the tender age of 14, produced by Daniel Ray on Bar/None Records. He also went on a 14-city tour around the United States backed by Radio Disney, and won the 2014 Holly Prize from the Songwriter’s Hall Of Fame, as a tribute to Buddy Holly.
His new singles, “Can You See Me” and “Hard To Want” were co-written with Chris Dell’Olio (of the Tall Pines) and produced by GRAMMY-nominated Joel Hamilton (The Black Keys, Pretty Lights, and Tom Waits). Jack Skuller has certainly gotten the industry stamp of approval, proving that he’s got the chops to bring rock and roll back for good. (Does anyone else miss good old fashioned guitar on the radio, or is it just us?) And who doesn’t love a harmonica solo? We could totally see Jack touring with The Strypes.
You can see Jack Skuller in NYC at The Bowery Electric on November 8th in NYC. Click HERE for tickets and show information.
