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 released their debut album, I’m in Love with a Zombie in 2013. Later that year, they relocated to Las Vegas when Hinds was asked to join the cast of Million Dollar Quartet. They still play shows on both the East and West Coast.

Samantha Gray is a singer, songwriter and visual artist who began her creative journey at a very early age. Although she was raised in Ypsilanti, Michigan, Samantha’s father and maternal grandparents were from Tennessee. She really embraced her southern roots and has often said that she had the best of both worlds. Samantha was exposed to many different types of music, especially country music and the sounds of Motown. Her unique voice has been described as soulful, sultry and powerful. Melding the influences of classic R&B, blues and rock ‘n’ roll, she combines all of these influences into her own brand of roots music, which can be heard on her 2010 debut album “Bad Girl Now.”
