Kosmik Egg delivers a high-energy hybrid of musical genres including reggae-funk, pop-rock and hip-hop-fusion. Their rich amalgamation of raw talent and unique arrangements will have you singing along before you know it!
Aaron’s dad started teaching him drums when he was an infant, “I practiced 4 hours a day, and by 8 years old I was playing in my father’s classic rock band.” His influences range from Mitch Mitchel, Keith Moon and John Bonham to Lars Ulrich and Buddy Rich. His dynamic style coupled with flawless timing is sure to impress.
Eric plays his 5 string bass with finger, slap, and pick stylings. He moves fluidly from rock to reggae into funk and hip-hop. Aston Barret is one of his main influences along with Flea, Les Claypool, and Victor Wooten. He adds copious amounts of warmth, & emotion to the Kosmik Egg sound and feel.
Jim grew up listening to the sounds of jazz from the old school greats like Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, and Clifford Brown. "My greatest influence is still St. Petersburg's own 76 year old Jazz veteran, Buster Cooper." who Jim has been sitting in with since age 15. From jazz-funk, to World beat or just plain-ol' Rockin' out, Jim brings a tasty trumpet sound to the Kosmik Egg mix.
Dylan’s amusing yet thought-provoking lyrics resonate with listeners from many social backgrounds. His hooky guitar riffs and melodies will leave you humming tunes like “Rainin'” long after the cd stops. “I borrow little bits and pieces from every musician I respect and rework them in different combinations,” comments Dylan, who’s influences include: The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Police, Toots and the Maytals, Sublime, Frank Zappa, and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.
Kosmik Egg’s songs have been featured in two independent movies, (the award winning) Vice Verses and The Land Lord; also on HGTV (Home and Garden Television). Kosmik Egg recently opened for Digable Planets, and Vanishing point Films has produced a music video for thier song "One Drop".
