About Us

Alt Indie Pop Rock for the Masses

Something fresh for the evolving species!

“I can see the joy in their faces (everyone’s, actually) whenever I’ve seen The Skelton Collective play.” - Bob Gordon - Around The Sound.

Since forming in January of 2017, The Skelton Collective has leapt from the plate with frantically fun energy. With a collective 50+ years of professional musical experience, Jess, Craig, Deb and Daniel mix funky groves with their own inspirational mantra of “choosing Happy” to bring you the unique flavour of their Indie/Alt Rock/Inspirational style!

Honey for your Ears

Groovy, melodic alt indie pop rock.
Lyrics with Meaning and Music with Soul

A family affair, all the musicians — lead singer and saxophonist Jess Skelton, keyboardist Craig Skelton, bassist Deborah Skelton, and drummer Daniel Skelton — share more than just a passion for music. Influenced by world class acts from Toto to Tori Amos, the Skelton Collective’s music is all about sharing happy. While three of the members are new to the rock scene, Craig previously performed with Aussie rock legends such as James Morley, Jaime Page, and more!
