Bio

Originally from Pensacola, Florida, The Gills made their way to Nashville, TN, to push themselves out of their hometown comfort zone. Years later, they've put the finishing touches on the most cathartic songs of the band's career yet."¨"¨ Written after years of touring, The Gills' latest album explodes with all the pressure of a shaken-bottle of soda whose cap has finally flown off. Frontman Jesse Wheeler began writing songs as a teenager, looking for an outlet to help him put a positive spin on his childhood battle with Leukemia. The Prince brothers - Matt (drums) and Andy (bass) - climbed aboard after Wheeler recovered and shortly after met keyboardist/guitarist Justin Locke, who became the group's fourth member."¨
