Skyler Clark , grew up in Thonotosassa, Florida. He started playing the guitar at seven; around sixteen playing acoustic shows in the local area. Skyler’s influences include George Strait, Jason Aldean, Hank Williams jr., and Luke Bryan. In January 2013, after performing at Plant City O’Brien’s Irish Pub Open Mic Night, Skyler’s career took off. He developed a growing fan base from playing at Captain’s Corner in Brooksville, where he was featured on a radio station. His unique sound made him a stand out.
A couple years back in December of 2014, Skyler found a talented group of musicians- Jeff Johnson (lead guitar/vocals), Codee (drums), and Jerry Willi (bass). Together they formed the Skyler Clark Band. The Skyler Clark Band has performed at venues throughout the state, including Toby Keith’s Bar and Grille (Orlando), Kicker’s South (Hudson), Joyland (Bradenton), Boots N’ Buckles (Lakeland), and many more. The band was selected to perform at the 2015 Charlie Daniel’s Angelus Country Concert at the Hard Rock Tampa, SouthshoreMusic Festival in Riverview, and opened for Chase Bryant. Skyler Clark Band captures the party lifestyle of central Florida and blends modern country music with southern rock.
Skyler says he’s always looked up to the classics like Merle Haggard, George Strait, Conway Twitty, ect. But he also really enjoys Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, etc. Skyler is a hardworking country boy that can really sing! With his new age country/southern rock sound along with his adorable smile and laid back attitude we think he’s destin for stardom.
