The Story of The Gillis Silo
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, Easton Corbin, Trace
Adkins, Aaron Lewis, Jana Kramer, and Chris Young.
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 February 2014, Caleb Paul was nominated for Country Song of the Year by
the American Songwriting Association for his song “Listen For My Truck”.
The Gillis Silo was 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. They are currently finalists in the Pepsi Southern
In July 2014, The Gillis Silo performed at Country Explosion in Tooele,
Utah. They are scheduled to perform at Gulf Coast Jam in Panama City,
Florida in August 2014. They have played iconic venues throughout the South
including The Varsity Theatre, The Howlin’ Wolf, The Shed BBQ & Blues
Joint, Hard Rock Cafe, and the House of Blues.
Their much anticipated debut EP is set for release late summer 2014.
The Gillis Silo proudly endorses and is sponsored by Pearl Drums, Spector
Basses, Warmoth Guitars, and Soxfords.
