Tooley Deviljuice

Built on a foundation of country/bluegrass/blues, Tooley Deviljuice is a solo acoustic act from just south of Macon, GA paying tribute to classic singer/songwriters, folk and country singers through originals and carefully selected covers.

I was raised on country music, gospel, and '50s and '60s rock and roll. I was turned onto grunge, metal, and electric guitar at 12 years old (1995). Spending the 16 years since then playing guitar, bass, and drums in rock and metal bands, I always kept an acoustic close by for late night jamming and songwriting. I took some random acoustic gigs in '09 playing in an old school/outlaw country duo, which kickstarted a desire to return to those roots.

Between 2006 and 2012 I was also running sound/booking/promoting/recording for bands and venues, and in April 2012 the venue I was managing closed. I dove back into performing and remembered how much I loved it. June 2012 saw me make the decision to start heavily booking as Tooley Deviljuice. Since then I have recorded and toured on my first solo album "Love Songs & Murder Ballads", playing over 40 acoustic shows in GA, TN, KY, OH (in addition to playing with my bands and sitting in with others!), and only plan to keep moving forward.
