What started out as a put together band to cover some gigs left open by Jerry Rowan and Tyrel Piper’s former band quickly took on a life of its own. The band developed its own original sound and mix of music described as swampy, rockin’ blues with a touch of funk and country soul. A sound as unique as the Ozarks themselves.
Eyrth Bone’s selection of original music (written by band members Jerry Rowan, Tyrel Piper) and wide variety of cover songs (from Blues to Country and everything in between) makes for a truly creative mix of styles that is full of energy. Add to that Taylor Garden’s unique style and sense of rhythm on drums and the one and only Tyrel Piper putting his incomparable signature on every song, the band produces a sound both familiar and new. Accompanied by Wayne Angel’s lively conga work it’s easy to tell they’re having fun doing what they love.
Jerry Rowan: Bass player, Lead Vocals. A Philly boy who moved to the Ozarks years ago, Jerry has played with many bands over the years including Numa, Free Whiskey, and The House Burners. Jerry writes most of the band’s songs and sings most of the lead vocals. He moved to the Ozarks and played in 3 working bands: AK-47, Class X, and Pakalolo….all classic rock and blues bands. He had a son and started building homes and playing in an original group called Numa that put out 3 CDs. One is still selling on Amazon.com called "Outside Looking In.
Tyrel Piper: Lead Guitar, Lead Vocals. Tyrel has been performing since he was 17 years old. He has played with Carl Acuff Jr, Free Whiskey, High Class White Trash to name a few. Born and raised in Newton County Arkansas, Tryel began playing music with his family in church at the age of 6 years old. At the age of 12 was on a full time cross country tour of the U.S. playing guitar. Tyrel loves the blues and is strongly influenced by Led Zepplin, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robert Johnson and Pantera. He also has a love for bluegrass as well.
Taylor Garden: Drums/guitar/songwriter. Taylor is the youngest member of the band but you wouldn't know it to hear him play. He was born to missionary parents in Duiwelskloof, South Africa coming to America in ’97 to Texas where his father was a pastor. His family settled in the heart of the Ozarks in Jasper, AR where he has honed his musical skills. Music has been a part of his life since he was born and it is his one true passion next to family. Taylor writes, sings and plays music inspired by his life and is interested in all genres.
Wayne Angel: Conga drums/ vocals. A Texas native, he moved to the Ozarks in 2000. Wayne started playing congas with the band Numa and KGB in 2001 with Jerry Rowan. Wayne learned to play conga drums from conga master Juergen Lottman and by playing in the studio and improving his own style by playing impromptu on the stage. Wayne is happiest when he is on stage playing for the people and seeing them enjoy what they hear.
