The Skullers
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.

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.
The Bad Larrys
Ladies and gents, hailing out of Philadelphia, The Bad Larrys! Only listen to this music at loud volumes. Their newest and most available single, "Fired In The Morning" from the "Exposing Racket" EP expected to be released in the spring, displays this band's knowledge of roots rock. That's exactly what this band is. Take away the "glitz and glamour" of the twinkly emo scene and indie rock kids, replace it with an incredible knowledge of rock and roll as a genre the past 40 - 50 years & a hell of a lot of sweat, and you've got The Bad Larrys. These 20-somethings lay down solid bass lines, complimented by classic blues guitar rhythms, and heavy guitar leads. The vocalist, Sean Flynn, lays down very honest and fun lyrics in a tasteful yet gritty manor comparable to Black Lips. All of this to say Jaret (the bands guitarist) sent me some new demo tracks and they are staying true to rock and roll. Their energetic live show includes Fender stacks loud enough to rock your skin off and knock down Trumps wall. Tons of great tunes, Tons of fun.
