|PA alternative rock singer/songwriter Kulick (who recently accumulated over three million combined streams on Spotify), continued to give fans a preview of his debut full-length album ‘Yelling in a Quiet Neighborhood,‘ out now on ENCI Records.|
Check out the lyric video for the new song “Talking To The Ceiling” here:
The track follows on the heels of the previous single “Rope,” which landed on several major playlists, including Spotify’s NEW NOISE, POPROX, NEW MUSIC FRIDAY and THE NEW ALTERNATIVE playlists.
Kulick shares on his social media, “I was born half deaf in both ears. This was the inspiration behind using subtitles/closed captions for the lyrics. I wear hearing aids which help, but it’s made life different for sure and in some moments, has made me feel a bit more alone or to myself. It also made being an artist, musician, engineer and producer a challenge, but I’m up for it and I continue to grow, adapt and create. I swear I love music so much because of this, so I am grateful for it. I hope you’re enjoying the two new singles. More to come soon.”

|Originally from West Penn, PA, Jacob Kulick who now goes solely by his surname, turned his tiny closet into his own private music studio at age 12 and began writing and recording songs as a way to cope with his anxiety and the loneliness of being an outcast. “Middle school was a tough time—I went through a lot of disassociation and bullying, like a lot of people do when they’re different in a small town,” says the 28-year-old singer/songwriter.|
Kulick co-founded a high school band Story of Another, self-produced his own album and went on to study audio engineering at the Art Institute of Philadelphia. He got a job with CBS Radio in New York City as an engineer and crossed paths with a fellow musician who had a connection at RCA Records. Once he’d landed an introductory meeting with the label, Kulick devoted the next two years to building up his solo material and collaborating with other writers. In summer 2017, those two years of intense creativity led to Kulick signing a deal with RCA/Gold’n Retriever Records.
A tour with Sleeping with Sirens and The Rocket Summer in 2018 was followed by the release of his debut EP ‘Hydroplane,’ which featured the powerful Active Rock charting single “Ghost” and went on to accumulate over three million streams worldwide. In 2019, he toured with Andy Black and The Faim and released a standalone single titled “Scatterbrain,” which he explains is a song about, “today’s busy society, both young and old and the battle to stay true to who you are.”
With the release of his debut full-length titled “Yelling in a Quiet Neighborhood,” out now via ENCI Records, the Southern California label recently launched by industry veteran Pat Magnarella (longtime manager of Goo Goo Dolls), Kulick continues to showcase his rare ability to turn everyday pain into music that’s undeniably life-affirming.
With the album’s recurring themes of Uncertainty, Guilt, Sadness, Shame, Love, Remorse and Closure, Kulick explains, “It is the record where I learned the most about who I am and how much of that reality I was avoiding. This record is me. You know how nice it is to really feel like that? It’s incredible! I love the ‘Hydroplane’ EP, but I didn’t feel like it was entirely me. I wanted to be more hands on with making the music, producing it and engineering my songs. On this record, I was allowed that, thanks to my new label ENCI and my managers Pat Magnarella and Steve Masi. I wrote this record for most of the year and got to produce the songs with Chris Szczech in LA. I was able to record live drums in Capitol Records and track all of my own vocals and instruments, so it was a completely different process and I enjoyed every moment creating it. It was my therapy like it always is, but in the most trying time of my life.”
As Kulick prepared to release this new deeply personal collection of songs into the world, he’s looking forward to getting back out on the road, armed with the lessons he learned during the making of the new record.
“I am ready to tour as soon as it is safe to. I miss my friends and everyone who shares these songs with me. I miss their energy. When we’re able to tour again, look forward to hearing the first record that is truly a KULICK record. I look forward to sharing it with everyone.”
