Celebrating five years on the music scene since the release of his first single at age 14 in 2010, Jack Skuller is streaming a compilation called “The Early Years.” The ten tracks take the listener in chronological order from his 7” vinyl debut on Bar-None Records to his most recent release on NJ indie Mint 400 Records.
The percolating rockabilly tinged “Love Is A Drum” was produced by Daniel Rey, best known for his work with the Ramones. The single received raves in the music press including the New York Post which called him a “mini Jack White." Radio Disney took notice and gave Skuller the opportunity to tour 15 major cities in the U.S.
More singles followed including the compilation’s only non-original, a cover of the Johnny Cash classic “Get Rhythm.” "You’ll Never Take My Holiday” premiered on Teen Vogue and was picked up by the ASPCA for a holiday campaign. “Tell Me Your Heart” further cemented his image as the NY Deli called him a “teen idol in the wrong era.” The recent single “Can You See Me” was produced by GRAMMY nominated Joel Hamilton and showcases Skuller’s growth as a singer, songwriter, guitarist and harmonica player.
In 2014 Skuller’s songwriting was recognized by the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and they awarded him the Holly Prize in tribute to the legacy of Buddy Holly.
Skuller says, “the compilation allows me to take a look at the work I’m most proud of while I’m working on new songs and new sounds.”
