Primary Instrument: Vocalist
from the Philadelphia Daily News:
Eddie Skuller does sad with a capital S. But the cabaret singer with the high tenor voice avoids a pity party, shading his songs with depth and texture. His show's called Sad Songs to Make You Happy.
Skuller's a fan of Jimmy Scott, not only because they share high voices, but also because of how the veteran singer connects with audiences and manipulates a song's tempo. On his new CD Somebody's Fool, Skuller embraces the dark and moody but injects the tender promise of hope. Not an easy thing for most singers to pull off.
from the Philadelphia Inquirer:
“With his Boy George-meets-Frank Sinatra delivery, cabaret singer Eddie Skuller is somehow able to mix such standards as You Don't Know What Love Is and This Bitter Earth with Steve Earle's country lament Goodbye and the Smithereens' Only a Memory, and create a cohesive exploration of the profound side of pop despair.”
