"REVIEWS"

AMERICAN SONGWRITER MAGAZINE “Tell Me Your Heart” is an early ’60s-inspired tune Jack wrote shortly after he started driving. 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.

NYC THE DELI MAGAZINE
Jack Skuller is a teen idol in the wrong era. He’s got all the makings of a 1950s rocker. He’s also got the looks of a jukebox hero. ‘Tell Me Your Heart' is an unexpectedly well done tribute to the timeless teen freedoms of hot rodding and heart breaking. Buddy Holly would be proud.

HUFFINGTON POST/A-SIDES
The retro cool stud performed a track for A-Sides, and talked about the song, his music style, and influences. Big things may be in store for what the New York Post referred to as “mini Jack White.” Not too shabby. The world could use another cool guy named Jack.

MY OLD KENTUCKY BLOG
“killer power-pop songwriting sensibilities of skinny teen Skuller… he has a nose for hooks. Keep an eye on this kid" -

TEEN VOGUE
“Meet Jack Skuller, our new favorite singer-songwriter. This crazy-talented 15-year-old’s soulful voice and boyish good looks make us truly believe that this is the most wonderful time of the year.

TOP 10 INDIE/UNSIGNED EP’S
“Jack’s self-titled debut EP is a very promising start for this 16-year old teen sensation. His songs are upbeat, fun and totally age-appropriate. Already an accomplished guitarist, Jack’s songs are also well written and feature his amazing voice and talent in every note. The future looks very bright for this young man.” Bob Leggett/Examiner

THE EXAMINER
“Here’s a prediction. Jack Skuller is going to be a big, big rock star…. This is not bubble-gum pablum; it’s arguably the best single released by anyone this year. Anyone.”..

STAR LEDGER
“Jack’s not just a cute little kid trying to sing pop songs. He understands rock ‘n’ roll. His clean, muscular chordings on electric guitar delivery a clarity and freshness that’s missing from much of today’s indie scene.”

Your family’s next obsession

CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
No lie: “Love Is A Drum” the first single from teenager Jack Skuller will stay in your head for days. This is admirable and refreshing.

THE DELI
“Love Is A Drum” is a catchy, energetic… old style rock’n’roll song that has the potential to charm pretty much everybody from babies to grampas.

NEW YORK POST
The mini Jack White: Skuller’s first single on local label Bar None, is a rockabilly-like ditty decidedly more Jack White than Justin Bieber.

OWTK
“Jack Skuller comes across as a real musician first, heartthrob second. An important distinction for artistic longevity purposes.”

7 INCHES
“The chorus is impressive produced pop, I can’t deny he’s a one of a kind songwriter at his age already.”

THE EXAMINER
“this song by New Jersey-based rocker Jack Skuller is nothing short of sublime.”

NEW YORK PRESS
“the video showcased just how talented this upstart is. Heads up, Justin Bieber.”

20/20 Eyewear Magazine
“this kid’s got the essence of potential “–mania” easily tucking on to the end of his name. We’re breathless and only hope you someday say you EYED it first here at 20/20.”

JERSEY BEAT
“his rock ‘n’ roll heart beats with the blue-eyed soul of rock ‘n’ roll’s Fifties forefathers.”

MY OLD KENTUCKY BLOG
“killer power-pop songwriting sensibilities of skinny teen Skuller… he has a nose for hooks. Keep an eye on this kid.

INDIE ROCK MAGAZINE
Jack Skuller is an excellent singer/songwriter with a passion for “old school” rockabilly and punk. Good for the soul.”

THE NEXT BIG THING
“Love Is A Drum” is a hopped up Marshall Crenshaw-like heck of a debut for a real teenager. It has a nice Knack type crunch to it. …under any reasonable circumstance – this kid ought to have a big future ahead.

THE RUCKUS
He’s an absolutely adorable 15 year old punk musician with a fantastic voice and some pretty sweet guitar skills. It is patently clear that he understands rock & roll and is a serious musician, which is something that kids don’t typically get enough credit for.

AMP RADIO 97.1
One of our favorites on the list, Jack Skuller has that sort of late ’50s/Rebel Without A Cause flair that would make him like Justin Bieber with an Elvis twist.

FOAM MAGAZINE
Leave it to a New Jersey ninth-grader to channel the spirit of Buddy Holly with a rockabilly-tinged act. The single “Love Is A Drum” conveys heartache like only a teenager could.

2DM THE BLOGAZINE
Jack Skuller Is on fire. His music is pop in original sense: engaging, approachable and instantly classic. He certainly provides refreshing relief from the leagues of overproduced marketing machines that have ruled the international pop airwaves recently. He’s lightyears away, and is a stellar musician first and foremost.

DISORDER MAGAZINE
Jack Skuller looks fresh -faced . That ’s due to him having been fifteen for little more than five months. In the vein of Kitty, Daisy and Lewis comes this old school rock loving, dapper suit wearing, New Jersey living teenager who last year created ‘Love Is A Drum’, one of the catchiest pieces of rockabilly minimalism we’ve heard. - press blurbs
