Reverend Hylton & The Devil's Hands is an Americana Outlaw band from the Atlanta area that mixes a blend of rowdy country songs and heartfelt ballads.

Forming an Americana Outlaw band with band mates Matt Humphry on drums, Jared Slyman on bass and bringing in the electric slide styles of Kyle Prinzbach. Together they are Reverend Hylton and the Devil's Hands. A sound that showcases Rev. Hyltons relatable songs of traveling, heartache, and addiction. A Mix of rowdy country tunes and heartfelt ballads. So watch out 'cause you might just find yourself singing along or doing a little shit kickin' boot stompin! Keep an ear out for your opportunity to get tempted. See ya in church, folks!!!
The Horse Trader makes the long trip back to camp as night falls on a long day of dealing. When he reaches camp, he lifts up a beat up old guitar. “I got it for a song!” He chuckles haughtily and tosses the instrument and a small wad of cash over to his pals as he leads what’s left of a string of horses to the makeshift posts they’ve wedged between a cluster of rocks. “A song.” One of the others repeats the words as his hands meet the strings. He pieces a few chords together and the traders begin to sing. They sing stories about the travels. They sing ditties and dirges and ballads until each is too tired to go on. As the night sky stills with his boots propped up and a hat covering his face, one of the traders quietly mutters “what a deal” and nods off.
The Horse Traders are dealers. They deal in songs and stories. They deal in good luck and heartbreak. But they don’t stop dealing.
Products of the hills of West Virginia, The Horse Traders (Travis, Wood, Patrick and Andrew) can be found on any given night trading songs, instruments and verses as they play their hand-quilted brand of Americana Roots Rock & Soul.
After a previous incarnation of the band formed a hole, Patrick Stanley and Andrew Hankins, both singers and songwriters seasoned in the Southern West Virginia music scene, joined up with Travis Egnor and Wood Roberts, longtime friends and bandmates, to round out the group as it stands today. Livened by the new changes, The Horse Traders are hitting the road, armed with 2014’s release “Did You Forget to Leave This in Durango?”, trading their songs for a memory of each town they come across along the way.
