About The Band

Nashville staple Derek Hoke said it best, "There is no one in Nashville doing what The Royal Hounds are doing."
Likely one of the most original bands in Nashville, The Royal Hounds features one of the city's wildest front men with one of the best guitarists in Nashville. In a world where 2+2 equals 4, the combination of Scott Hinds and Matheus Canteri easily add to six! With their wild showmanship, stage tricks, quirky original songs, and stellar musicianship, it all adds up to the most unique live show around. The Royal Hounds last release, Poker All Night Long saw plenty of success, even charting on the Americana radio charts. Lead singer Scott Hinds spent three years in Vegas in the Tony Award Winning show Million Dollar Quartet, but he is now back home in Tennessee, taking the Royal Hounds across America and across the globe.


Scott Hinds

Scott Hinds is one of Nashville's premier slap bassists. As the lead singer and founding member of The Royal Hounds, he is known for his animalistic and spontaneous approach to live performance. Having taken the band on tour across three continents, Scott currently calls Music City home. In addition to fronting The Royal Hounds, Scott played Carl Perkins in the Vegas production of the Tony Award winning musical Million Dollar Quartet.

Matheus Canteri

From a small town called Bragança in the state of São Paulo Brazil, Matheus Canteri is one of the emerging names of the new generation of Chicken Pickers. He has played all over Brazil, has toured the United States and Europe and is known for always delivering visceral performances with epic solos. Matheus has shared the stage with Johnny Hiland and has written lessons for guitar magazines around the world including Guitar Player Magazine and Total Guitar. Canteri has done videos and showcases for brands like Anasounds (France), DR Strings, Tone Gauge, Santo Angelo Cables and is currently endorsed by Fuhrmann and HC Guitars and pickups.


Scott Billingsley, better known as Bramblebusch, Bramble, or The Busch, is the original Royal Hounds rhythm guru, a founding member of the band, and is currently our drummer on the East Coast. Originally he wanted to play trumpet in his middle school band, but his band teacher said "I don't need trumpet players, I need drummers." Since then, Bramble has been banging the skins with many other projects as well, most notably The Parrott Brothers. He also recently finished an East Coast tour with Molly Sue Gonzalez and the Mean Mean Men of Lanark Records. He currently runs a recording studio called Camelot Studio and is endorsed by Aquarium Drum Heads,
