Artist To Watch: Jack Skuller

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.

Artist To Watch: Jackson Harris

It’s been quite an exciting year for singer Jackson Harris!  Since releasing his debut EP, “Sharks and Vampires” in Feburary, Jackson has opened for artists like Fifth Harmony and Before You Exit, and is currently on tour with Cody Simpson in Europe.  Growing up in NYC, Jackson always knew he wanted to be a musician.  He immersed himself in music, listening to everyone from James Taylor to his sister’s Backstreet Boys albums, and friends’ Fall Out Boy albums.   Fitting right in with today’s DIY pop music trend, Jackson taught himself to play guitar by watching videos of John Mayer on Youtube, and posting his own covers of artists like Taylor Swift and Imagine Dragons.  (de rigueur for pop stars these days!)

Jackson has a versatile sound, and you can hear the range of influences in his songs.  Watch the video for his single “Life Through a Lens” below!

European Tour Dates with Cody Simpson
July 4th – Bord Gais Energy Theatre – Dublin, Ireland
July 5th – Academy 2 – Manchester, England
July 6th – Library – Birmingham, England
July 8th – La Maroquinerie – Paris, France
July 11th – Bikini – Barcelona, Spain
July 12th – Shoko Live – Madrid, Spain
July 14th – Armazem F TMN Ao Vivo – Lisbon, Portugal

He’ll be back in New York for a show on August 12th with Mike Tompkins at the Studio at Webster Hall.   Tickets are on sale now! Pickup a copy of the “Sharks and Vampires” EP on iTunes or Amazon!

Artist to Watch: Tiffany Houghton

We love the pop-country sound of rising singer-songwriter Tiffany Houghton, who was just added to MKTO’s American Dream Tour lineup!  Tiffany has that fresh “early Taylor Swift” sound that we’ve been searching for.  Armed with an acoustic guitar and girl-next-door charm, Tiffany’s catchy, well-crafted songs will have you singing along before the first chorus.  Tiffany moved to Nashville at the age of 17, and has spent time songwriting and honing her craft.  We’re sure you’ll be hearing a lot more from this girl in the future!

Watch the video for her new single, “17 Again,” below, which was inspired by one of our favorite movies,”Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

Tiffany teamed up with ConcertBlogger.com for a performance of “Band Boy,” which she wrote about her weakness for boys in bands after getting home from a concert one night.  This song is pretty much every fangirl’s anthem.  We especially love the line “fangirls love band boys and band boys love fan girls!”
