The Skeptics Win Silver Medal in Global Music Awards for Woodmancy Road

Buffalo-based rock/power pop band The Skeptics won a Silver Medal in the Global Music Awards for the song, “Woodmancy Road,” off their four-song  EP, Reloaded, released March 30, 2019. A sound sample and links to downloads on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and other platforms can be found here.

The folk-rock, acoustic-electric track features songwriter Tom Mullen’s lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Dave Levin’s jangly lead lines and vocal harmonies, Mark Buckley’s melodic bass and Dan Komanski’s rock steady drumming and tasty fills.

“I think everyone has a place that has a special magic for them, especially if it’s somewhere they’ve gone since childhood,” said Mullen. “My great-uncle’s cabin in the foothills of New York’s southern tier is that place for me. There never has been a phone there – although now you can be reached on cell phone. It was kind of an escape into the wilderness for hiking, fishing and snake-catching – one of our favorite pastimes when we were kids.”

The Silver Medal is the band’s second Global Music Award. They previously won a Bronze Medal for “South Beach,” off the same EP.

Woodmancy Road was recorded at Loft Studio in Cheektowaga, N.Y. and produced by Jim Sommer. More information can be found on the Skepticsongs website at

The Skeptics Release new EP, Reloaded

Buffalo, NY. March 28, 2019. Buffalo-based The Skeptics released a new, four-song EP titled, Reloaded on Thursday. The veteran Western New York power pop quartet took a break from individual projects to recapture the magic that put them on college radio charts all over the country.

Tom and Dave each penned two songs for this tight little EP. The disc gets off to a rousing start with Tom’s fun-in-the-sun, “South Beach,” which grabbed a Bronze Medal at the Global Music Awards. Next up is Dave’s “Flat,” which will leave you anything but. The band continues with an acoustic trip down “Woodmancy Road” and finishes strong with the multi-textured “Bittersweet and Cold.”

Mark’s melodic bass playing adds something special to each track, while Danny K holds it all down with rock steady drumming and tasty fills.

Catchy hooks, compelling melodies, rich harmonies and a variety of styles – It’s incredible what these guys accomplish in such a short space of time. Load up The Skeptics Reloaded – you’ll be glad you did.
