SILVERGUN is an American ROCK BAND formed in Dallas, Texas, December 2012. Bands that influenced SILVERGUN .. Theory of a Deadman, Shinedown, Alterbridge, Mötley Crüe, Velvet Revolver, Stone Sour, Rev Theory, Following in the footsteps of those kind of great American Rock Bands isn't that easy.. But when you hear the lead vocals come pouring out of Scott Lathwood with lyrics about women and whiskey it makes you think .. Am I really listening to a new rock band?
A rare mixture of style, swagger and charisma is what a Rock Frontman needs to possess and Scott hits all three and more. Lead singers like Scott Lathwood is what made rock and roll what it is today. This band reaches back to the roots of Rock and it shows up in each and every song. Writing rock songs that are fun , appealing and .. Well actually the word I am looking for is “Kickass” isn’t the easiest thing to do because you can have the greatest front man in the world but you must have the lyrics and music to back it up. Add SILVERGUN’s founder, lead guitarist, Darren "DPaul" Wise.
DPaul is known for shredding a guitar and best known for The Drew Pearson TV Show Band on FOX Sports & WAR of ROCK TV. He has shared the same stage with Vince Neil of Motley Crue, played alongside lick for lick with Mark Slaughter from SLAUGHTER, worked with one of rock's great businessmen, Mr. Dana Strum and the list goes on and on .. DPaul is an exceptional songwriter with his work being featured in several major motion pictures including Final Recourse and Hail Mary The Roger Staubach and Drew Pearson Dallas Cowboy Story. From New Orleans, LA originally and currently resides in the heart of Dallas Texas and is a frequent visitor professionally and as a fan in The Deep Ellum Music Scene. If you listen real close you can hear DPaul’s deep musical roots in blues, rock, and jazz. He was influenced by the work of artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, B.B. King, Carlos Santana, as well as Motley Crue, AC/DC and of course Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan.
Lead singer (Check) Lead Guitarist (Check) Kickass lyrics and music ( Double Check)… Now Drums and Bass.
Known for the speed, power, innovation and precision of his drumming he is considered one of the most dangerous drummers in the region. Left hander skin man Michael Gray joined the group and has history with DPaul Wise.
Last but definitely not least, bassist Lee Autry was added to the roster to complete the SILVERGUN machine. Lee creates the powerfully fat bottom end of Silvergun. With a style of his own, Autry’s bass lines provide the big sound; a sound “felt” as much as it is heard.
