Dead Country Gentlemen

Dead Country Gentlemen isn't a sound, it's an attitude of not being afraid to face your fears. 

Frontman Cameron Ray, a California-born songwriter raised amid the bright lights and dark motives of Las Vegas, views each song as an opportunity to shed light on the sensitive subjects society shies away from, all of which come from personal experience. 

Much of Ray's songwriting stems from being an only child, the product of divorced parents, in which he spent countless hours in solitude, accompanied by his thoughts, a radio and four walls. Constant questioning of life's grievances led Ray to seek refuge in music and he began writing songs as a means of expressing himself in those times of isolation when no one was around to listen.

Hailing from the Mission District of San Francisco, CA, Ray is joined by Evan Kaiser and Pearce Merritt. The trio combine thundering drums, high gain guitar and haunting organ to deliver heartfelt shows that reflect their unsettling lyrics.

Closer to rock and roll than punk, closer to punk than country
