Music is all Arlo Gilliam has ever known. The singer-songwriter-producer grew up south of Nashville, but always knew his path in life would guide him directly into Music City U.S.A. Over the years, Gilliam has taken pride in honing his craft and has quickly become known for his passionate drive for anything linked to the music business. In addition to his ability to lay down the low end on bass guitar and provide solid backing vocals. Gilliam is also an accomplished singer and songwriter, having released three solo projects with the fourth slated for release in the springtime of 2016. With the new yet-to-be-titled project, Gilliam is taking a giant leap in the right direction of evolving from singer-songwriter to artist in the spotlight.
In addition to penning the tunes found on his solo projects, including his latest effort, Gilliam has also continued to chip away at the world of songwriting in Nashville, collaborating with some of the town’s finest tunesmiths around. Gilliam was responsible for tracks by Canadian-country band Emerson Drive (“She’s My Kind of Crazy” on Open Road Universal, which debuted at #37 on Canada’s Billboard Hot 100), and Mark Houser and Bluegrass Drive (“John the Baptist” and “River of Regret” which made it into the top 25 on Power Source Magazine’s National Bluegrass chart on Rural Rhythm Records).
Gilliam has also had the opportunity to perform on some high-profile national television programs including Emeril Live, the Craig Ferguson Show, Grand Ole Opry Live as well as appearances in several music videos. He has also collaborated and toured with some of the best in the industry, such as Luke Bryan, LoCash, Emerson Drive, Colt Ford, Wade Hayes, Trent Willmon, Katrina Elam, Ty Herndon, Thompson Square, Ashton Shepard, and most currently, Travis Tritt.
