Sklut and Weston / Bio

Around 9:15 on a warm September night -the night of a full moon, no less- in the fall of 2011 Tommy Sklut was walking his dog. Naturally he was drawn to the sound of clinking glasses and cacophonous laughter, which led him around a dimly lit corner and into a poorly gardened patio. It was a Monday, and, like most Cubs fans, the group of rabble-rousers he found there didn’t have to get up and go to work the next morning. Amongst the gang sat John Weston with an old scratched and bruised six string laid neatly across his lap. Tommy asked, “What kind of music do you play?” To which John simply replied “Everything.”
“Oh,” Tommy said. “Well, how’s your ear?”

The rest is history.

Sklut and Weston have since honed a unique brand of New Orleans infused Americana, mixing rock and roll, folk, country and roots music on the piano and guitar with a focus on tightly knit vocal harmonies. Jerry Lee Lewis, Dr. John, Billy Joel and Ben Folds influence Tommy’s rock and roll piano style, while John’s guitar styling echoes Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Paul Simon and David Rawlings.

Their debut EP titled “Home” is due out May 17, 2013.
