In 1957, teens Phil and Don Everly supercharged the vocal sound of Rock’n’Roll with “Bye Bye Love” and “Wake Up Little Susie”, unleashing the sparkling vocal harmonies that would influence The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, Peter Paul & Mary, and the Bee Gees.
Now, six decades later, two acclaimed singer-songwriters with a mind-bending three-decade age difference combine millennial pluck with baby-boomer sass to present “The Everly Set: Sean Altman & Jack Skuller Celebrate The Everly Brothers”, featuring Bye Bye Love, All I Have To Do Is Dream, When Will I Be Loved, and more hits and rarities in concert.
Jack Skuller signed his first recording contract at just 14 years old. His debut single “Love is a Drum” was called “arguably the best single released by anyone [that] year” by The Examiner. His music career has since earned him a reputation for powerful live shows rooted in old school rock’n’roll. In his teen years, Skuller performed his original music for thousands of people across the U.S. as a Disney recording artist. He has been featured on the Disney Channel, FOX-TV’s Good Day New York, Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls, and with the GRAMMY Foundation. The Songwriters Hall of Fame recognized his talent by awarding him the esteemed Buddy Holly Prize. Now, Skuller continues to produce his raucous, catchy brand of rockabilly and rock’n’roll that American Songwriter once noted as “analog, vintage, and cool, with a sincerity.” As NYC The Deli Magazine put it – “Buddy Holly would be proud.”
Ex-Rockapella star Sean Altman is “tuneful and sharply witty” (Los Angeles Times) and “relentlessly clever” (Chicago Tribune), with a “silky tenor voice that produced chills” (New York Times). Altman — widely regarded as “the Father of Modern A Cappella” — co-founded and led the pioneering vocal group Rockapella through its heyday on the Emmy-winning daily PBS-TV series Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?, for which he co-wrote the famous theme song. Original songs from his six albums have been featured on dozens of TV and radio shows including Saturday Night Live, The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, and Schoolhouse Rock. Altman has twice performed at the White House, he has shared concert stages with Billy Joel, Whoopi Goldberg, Stephen Colbert, and Jay Leno, and he has recorded with artists as varied as Steve Miller, Richie Havens, and They Might Be Giants.
