The Gillis Silo traces its' roots back to Northern Afghanistan, where singer/songwriter Caleb Paul was deployed during 2012-2013 with the US Army. Caleb wrote many songs while in Kabul. Before he returned home he called seasoned Baton Rouge musicians Jordan Snyder, Jared Daigle, and Karl Boudreaux to begin the formation of The Gillis Silo. Once Caleb returned from his deployment, they began to carefully construct their alternative rock infused country sound. Since the band's first performance in January 2014, The Gillis Silo has made waves throughout the U.S. with their own brand of music that fans have dubbed "Country on the Rocks". They have had the privilege of sharing the stage with Florida Georgia Line, Eli Young Band, Easton Corbin, Trace Adkins, Aaron Lewis, Parmalee, Collin Raye, Tracy Byrd, Jana Kramer, and many others. Their single, She's My Hurricane, is in rotation in major radio markets throughout the South and their debut music video has been featured on CMT. In July 2014, The Gillis Silo performed on the main stage at Country Explosion in Tooele, Utah and at the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam in August 2014. They have played iconic venues throughout the South including The Texas Club, The Varsity Theatre, The Howlin' Wolf, Tootsie's, Silver Dollar Saloon, Hard Rock Cafe, War Eagle Supper Club, and House of Blues. Their much anticipated debut EP, Pieces of the Highway, is set for release in Spring 2015. The Gillis Silo proudly endorses and is sponsored by Pearl Drums, Spector Basses, Warmoth Guitars, and Soxfords.
