Shulertown formed in 2010 with the intent of playing original music. Soon after the inception of the band the muse was upon them and immediately began writing. In a short time the band had created a fairly extensive catalog of original music. Thick vocal harmonies, classic melodies, and unique rhythms come together in a new yet familiar sound that spans many genres and influences. Comprised of several music veterans each member has a very different influence and approach to music. Owen McClung, bassist and vocals, has a strong bluegrass background and has been playing bluegrass since his early teens. Charlie Platt, one of the founding members of Punkinhead brings his solid rhythmic foundation and his funk and soul to the table in his vocals, lyrics, and playing. Cowboy Tom, with classical piano training, and his impressionable years as a teen in Detroit brings a punk rock edge to a predominantly acoustic band with sound music theory and tension filled original songs. Jason Reddecliff with his singer/songwriter influences, as well as the ska/reggae aspect to his rhythm guitar playing rounds out all of these influences to create a new sound. The Shulertown Sound.
