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. Upon his return home to Baton Rouge he called upon seasoned musicians Jordan Snyder, Jared Daigle, Karl Boudreaux, and Josie Menard 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, Trace Adkins, Collin Raye, Tracy Byrd, Aaron Lewis, Jana Kramer, Chris Young, Easton Corbin, Billy Dean, Blackjack Billy, and members of Shenandoah. Their single, She's My Hurricane, is in rotation in major radio markets throughout the South and their debut music video was recently picked up by CMT. In July 2014, The Gillis Silo performed on the main stage at Country Explosion in Tooele, Utah. They performed at the largest country music festival in Florida, Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam, in August 2014. They have played iconic venues throughout the South including Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, The Texas Club, Silver Dollar Saloon Nashville, The Varsity Theatre, The Howlin' Wolf, The Shed BBQ & Blues Joint, Hard Rock Cafe, and the House of Blues. The Gillis Silo were the only country act to be global finalists in the Hard Rock Cafe Battle of the Bands in May 2014, and they received the most fan votes during the final round. Their much anticipated debut EP is set for release late fall 2014. The Gillis Silo proudly endorses and is sponsored by Pearl Drums, Spector Basses, Warmoth Guitars, and Soxfords.
