Devil’s Holler is the new project from multi-instrumentalist Rob Gray. Rob released his first album “Songs for the Half Awake” as Several Conclusions in 2008. Labeled by Margaret Welsh of the Pittsburgh City Paper as “an appropriate soundtrack for sufferers of seasonal-affective disorder.” , Rob put out a second album under this moniker called “How we pass” (2011) crafting an evolution of spooky americana. Songs of death, love, whiskey and loss stretch over each album. Now in 2014 “Croatoa”  finally hits the airwaves as a full 10 track release under the name “Devil’s Holler”. “

Rob has shared the stage with a long list of local and national artists such as Slim Forsythe and his New Payday Loaners, Jim Avett, The Roe Family Singers, The Beagle Brothers, The Harlan Twins, Faithful Sinners, Buddy Nutt and many more. You can find Rob hootin and a hollering in the backwoods of Butler, around campfires with The Wayward Strangers or pickin on his porch. Echoing from his Dormont studio sounds of musical saw, accordion, banjo fill the air. The ghosts of mentors like Townes Van Zandt, Blaze Foley and Jolie Holland are entwined in every strum and verse echoing through the neighborhood. Devil’s Holler is both the hell and the highway and will surely leave you stomping along.
