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....
