Hailing from the rich cotton fields of south Georgia a four piece band of brothers announced their arrival on the music scene as only they could. Splynter, as their name implies, were very invasive of their surroundings. Which is the exact impression they made on the music scene. Founded and led by front man Richard Gates and Drummer Richard Saldano, the band toured the southeast enlightening the masses with their own brand of post-southern and alternative rock. While carving their own niche into the ever changing world of music, their high energy and entertaining shows afforded them the opportunity to support some of the greatest names in rock, including era members of Lynrd Skynrd, Molly Hatchet, and Ghost Riders.
The sudden departure of Richard Gates from the band in early 2009 left them in disarray and in desperate need of a new front man. As they began to pick up the pieces, they went on the hunt for a new lead vocalist. While playing several music festivals, one name kept coming up: Wally Silver. Silver’s arrival signaled a new era for the band, known then as Daysleepers. Rounding out the band was long time friend and Bassist John Wagnon and vibrant guitarist Justin Myers. Upon signing with T&T Management and Booking, the band decided to change the name one last time to help ensure their place on a national and international scale. Hence, Silversel was born. With a new lead vocalist and a new name, the band went back to doing what they do best, touring and creating great music.
Presently, Silversel is touring the country incorporating blues, country, metal, and their own unique style of rock, while continuing their climb to the top and showing no signs of coming down.
