Biography

The Skeletons can only be described as: “Texican Rebel Folklore Music”, according to the band’s drummer Amanda Ingram! The band draws on influences from all types of music, including: surf, rockabilly, country, folk, and punk rock. This myriad of inspiration might help explain how The Skeletons can play an old Texas honky-tonk like Riley’s Tavern on one night, or University of Texas’ Blanton Museum of Fine Art the next. A feat not too many bands today could accomplish! Their sound conjures up images of desolate Texas highways drenched in a dark romanticism, rich in Tex-Mex folklore. Whether it be the twang of a Telecaster, the thumping of an upright bass, or bluesy guitar licks accented with a steady train beat on the drums, The Skeletons have carved a sound straight out of the Texas landscape. Their roots-based music began when singer/songwriter, Jeremiah Ingram decided to record some original songs on a four-track recorder in the bathroom of a double-wide trailer in Georgia. Upon returning to Texas, Ingram enlisted the help of upright-bass player, Vincent Saucedo. Due to all the late night jam sessions at their apartment in Austin, TX; Ingram’s wife Amanda soon joined in and made the switch from stagehand to drummer for The Skeletons (not yet named at that time). Guitarist, A.J. Guitierrez joined the ranks in July of 2007 followed shortly after by Nick Wicker and his haunting Mandolin melodies in 2008. Since then, The Skeletons have been delivering their brand of dark Americana to audiences throughout Central Texas.
