    Kalob Baker

    Lead Vocals & Guitar

    I have never confined myself to one genre but listened for great songs in any style. I think that's true for all of Split Rail and it shows in our writing. My musical career began when I was 10 and learned to play the guitar. I played my first gig with Ryan and Steve at a Moose Lodge when we were 14. I've been in several bands since and have played everything from classic rock, metal to country. I have played bass guitar, rhythm guitar and now I am taking on the role of front man. Desperately wanting to do one last serious music project, in 2012, I reached out to old friends and band mates Ryan Dyer and Steve Miller to form a band with newly found drummer Nick "Nuk" Mills. They reluctantly agreed to a jam session and it became evident that there was chemistry and worth pursuing. Without a doubt we have had a group of die-hard fans that follow us in large numbers everywhere we go. We will continue writing and playing as long as we have their support. Can't wait to see where this road takes us next!

    Ryan Dyer

    Lead Guitar & Vocals

    I started playing guitar when I was 12 years old, at the time I joined my first band which amounted to 4 good friends covering our favorite Metallica songs. We were all self taught and played school functions, festivals and parties through high school. I have played lead guitar in and out of bands since then and have changed my genre to suit my age and interests. I have been blessed with the ability to find music in most anything and am currently playing the banjo and harmonica as well. My musical influences are very wide but to name a few; Mike McCready, Eddie Veder, Joe Perry, Jimi Hendrix, Hank Sr., Willie Nelson, Slash and Jimmy Page. I was playing folk music previously to this band and have since found an awakened interest in country as it has taken a new twist and has been infused with heart and soul. I look forward to the journey with Split Rail and hope to influence a few folks on the way.

    Steve Miller

    Bass Guitar & Vocals

    From as long ago as I can remember, some of my earliest memories are of a smoke filled house full of family and friends with George Jones or Hank Jr. rattling the windows. They were happy times and they ingrained a love for good music deep in my young heart. That love branched out in many directions as the years passed. When I was 11 I got my first bass and taught myself to play with Metallica and Megadeth albums. In later years I played in several bands playing everything from Pantera to Hendrix. I love it all from the deep driving, foot stomping honky tonk song to the ripping, edgy, energy infused metal song.. Then along came Split Rail. A better example of the best of both my worlds I cannot imagine. Good old country music with a punch like a hammer. Throw in the fact that I get to rock out alongside 3 of my best friends and the caliber of talent they bring, and there you have it. The band I was born to play in!!!!

    Nick "Nuk" Mills

    Drums & Vocals

    I started playing the drums when I was 12 years old. A few of my friends were playing the guitar at the time so we started to jam together. We played covers and many originals. Growing up I listened to a wide array of music. Basically anything that had rhythm and a catchy beat behind it. I was most inspired by the dynamics and technique of many metal drummers. Classic rock artists opened the door to drumming for me and metal pushed me inside. I began playing with Kalob after a long hiatus from drumming and we inspired each other to grow better each day. One day he called Ryan and Steve to come over and jam after convincing us to try country music. After the first song we played I knew the dynamic changed from what songs “could” we play, to what songs we “want” to play. Since that day we have grown to be a band of musicians, brothers and best friends.
