JAKE’O McCLUSKEY is a 23-year-old-soul with the spirit of an aged blues man and talent of a seasoned rocker. He consistently amazes his audiences with his modern-retro originals and his eccentric arrangements of blues, rock 'n' roll, and R&B.

Jake'Os enthusiastic entertainment style transforms a 'routine performance' into a experience that the audience are unable to forget. When he takes to the stage, his greasy guitar licks and his booming dynamic reverberating-vocals captivates the crowd and enraptures them. His strikingly handsome appearance coupled with his flashy stage presence and ability to create original compositions makes him a 'triple threat'.

"These days, as an up-and-coming solo act, he graces the stage with a sky blue guitar, and plays a blend of blues, R&B, and rockabilly. You might see him wearing a matching button up shirt and vest with dress shoes, looking like a flashback to the days of Sam Cooke and Nat King Cole."~WiscNews
The Cut-Outs
The Cut-Outs
The Cut-Outs is the story of four friends. Four friends who grew up with a mutual love of music. Whether combing through their parents record collection, being intoduced to the The Clash and Wire from an uncle, or being submerged in the sounds of Minor Threat and The Descendents while skateboarding through South Side alleys, a seed was sown.

As influential as these bands and scenes were on the four friends, they truly bonded over the tunefulness and energy of lads from across the pond (Oasis, The Jam, The Beatles, New Order, Blur, Charlatans, Gene to name a few) as well as the burgeoning late 90's, early 2000's American Indie/Post-Rock scenes of Chapel Hill and the Midwest.
They soon formed a band. Writing and recording in Rob’s basement, they honed their songcraft and began to play shows. They self-released a 4 song EP called “Bring The Beat Back” that shared the same vitality and tunefulness of their early influences.
