Upon his return home, Chad Gillies had his first book of poetry, FUMBLING THROUGH THE DARK, published by Chipmunka in the UK.
Major musical influences include Bob Marley, John Lennon, Johnny Cash, Steve Earle, Muddy Waters, Clutch, and Gov't Mule. With this very diverse influence Chad Gillies puts together his own style, borrowing from delta blues, rock, and old school country. When all goes right, songs fall from his guitar like the beats of his own heart.
