About The Band
The Royal Hounds first played together in an impromptu performance at a friend's Christmas Party in 2010. The music was magic, and the ideas exploded as original members Hinds, Lee, and Billingsley collaborated on songs, stage tricks, and other components of their unique live show. The Royal Hounds recently released their second studio album, Poker All Night Long in 2016. Lead singer Scott Hinds has spent the the last 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 all across the globe.
Scott Hinds is one of Las Vegas's premier rockabilly slap bassist. As the lead singer and founding member of The Royal Hounds, he is known for his animalistic and spontaneous approach to live performance. Scott has played everywhere from Beale Street to Bourbon Street, New York’s Central Park to The Ace Cafe in London, and many other places across the globe and has also had the honor of singing “Folsom Prison Blues” with Johnny Cash’s band. In addition to fronting The Royal Hounds, Scott is currently acting in Million Dollar Quartet which can be seen at Harrah’s Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
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,
An international man of mystery, he picks guitar real good.
