Eddie Skuller

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.
