Hailing from Santa Cruz, CA, Archer is a young trio determined to deliver genuine and unrelenting hard rock and heavy metal music to fans everywhere. Keyhan’s unique drumming, David’s masterful bass duties, and Dylan’s captivating blend of playing and singing make for an exciting modern take on the genre while paying homage to the heavy metal inspirations that drive them. Archer has worked hard to climb the rock and roll heap and have no intention of slowing down as they continue to push towards greater heights, having already toured and performed alongside some of the genre’s biggest acts. Archer’s 2015 studio release “Culling The Weak” was produced and mixed by legendary rock/metal producer Mike Clink in Los Angeles.
Archer has also recorded full-length albums with Sam Taylor (King’s X, ZZ Top) & Gilby Clarke of Guns and Roses/Rock Star Supernova fame.
DYLAN ROSE - Guitar & Vocals Dylan carries his guitar and vocal duties with a passion. His musings across the fretboard excite and entertain, as he cites important influences such as Randy Rhoads, Marty Friedman, and Zakk Wylde. Combined with a voice reminiscent of early-era thrash icons Hetfield and Mustaine, it is astonishing to watch him weave his talented playing and singing into a singular act.
DAVID DESILVA – Bass & Vocals David holds a reverence for the bass guitar that is truly rare. His technical proficiency and musically diverse style come from years of honing his craft with a dedication to all things music. Influenced by the likes of Geezer Butler, Jack Bruce, Jaco Pastorius, Billy Sheehan, John Entwistle, and Marcus Miller, the present day result is a monster metal musician that fans love to watch as he unleashes his killer playing night in and night out.
KEYHAN MOINI - Drums Like the rest of Archer, Keyhan grew up in the musically rich environment of the Bay Area. He began on piano at a young age before teaching himself guitar and drums. Drawing influences from all styles, Keyhan blends a unique approach with his love for heavy metal, resulting in a fresh take on a classic form. Since joining Archer at the beginning of 2015, Keyhan has already made his mark on the band’s sound having toured on the first of many runs in promotion of 2015′s Archer release “Culling The Weak”.
