Ray Gill, Jr.


Ray Gill, Jr was born in Chicago, IL but moved to Texas as a child. After graduating from the University of North Texas in 2001, he remained in the college town of Denton, where he worked at an indie rock club called Hailey's. Over the course of seven years, Gill worked his way up from bartender to general manager and eventually owner of the venue. There he was exposed to some of the finest up and coming rock bands in the United States, including The Helio Sequence, Blitzen Trapper, STRFKR, St. Vincent, Midlake, and Sarah Jaffe. He left the night club business in 2013 and moved to Portland, OR where he now produces a show on Mondays for opbmusic and eagerly shares with his audience a mix of new music and the sounds of his youth.

Top Three Artists: Robert Nesta Marley, Hieroglyphics Crew, TV On The Radio
