Biography

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".

Lyrics

rainin'

Written By: dylan cowles

Verse I
Another day with no activity, I’ve got to get up and move
Get out there and try to make a difference, but I’ve got nothing left to prove
‘Cause I’ve been trapped by the sadness, held down by the boredom and the pain
Sycophantic neurotically apathetic, some days I feel slightly insane

Chorus
Because it’s always rainin’, it’s always rainin’ up in my mind
And ya know that it’s true baby boo come over here and help me do the things I need to do
You can make the sun, you can make the sun shine through

Verse II
Maybe I should pop a little Prozac, and have some synthetic fun
Happy, happy in my complacency, blank faced I float on and on
Right down that river through nowhere, my hopes and dreams go sliding by
Why should I work on my problems, it’s so much easier to hide deep, deep down inside

Chorus

Verse III
There’s no solutions without you, everything’s stupid, nothing’s cool
So many problems now, so dark I guess I’ll never see through
But will you touch me again, and grace me with your smile
Take me away some place, some place I’ll be happy for a while… maybe for a little while

Chorus

one drop

Written By: dylan cowles

Chorus
One drop that’s all it takes
One drop that’s all it takes, that’s all it takes
One drop that’s all it takes
One drop that’s all it takes, that’s all it takes

Verse I
One drop and I’ve got to stop and go pick up my thoughts
Back on the block where I left them so
I betcha already know I got love in my soul,
But I betcha didn’t know that I wanna get next to ya girl
Want love, got love, one love for the world
Like a tiny speck of sand, watch me become the pearl
Everybody gotta go get their ticket to the show
Better get in line before there ain’t no more
‘Cause I practice to perfection, put my foot in the door
Put my back into it, put my nose to the grind stone
I always come original, don’t wanna be no clone
I only feel at home, you know, when I’m up in the zone
When I step out on stage into the limelight’s glow,
I let the good time roll, but I keep it under control
I let it flow…
I let flow, I let it go, I let it roll

Chorus

Verse II
One drop and I finally see that it’s time to believe
I can set myself free from the ones who deceive
Just get up and leave, I hold the key
If they get in my way, them fools ‘ll be sorry
Karma’s like a tree, it’s roots run deep
And what they have planted is what they shall reap
So many zombies walkin’ ‘round in their sleep
And the price they gotta pay, boy, it ain’t cheap
So I gotta keep my nose clean, watch the magic beans
And the cracker man, with the whip-it cream
Don’t wanna wake up in the gutter without any dreams
Gotta keep on searchin’ for what it all means
So all you beautiful freaks come follow me
We’ll clam bake in the voodoo machine
Flip all the blue switches, turn the red lights green
And feel all of our tension release

Chorus

Bridge
Get on up and ya just can’t stop
When the music’s droppin’ on you (X4)

Verse III
One drop and ya know it’s true that Cosmic Egg crew’s
Been recyclin’ up the medium with a drop of deuce
Just like the A-Team foo’ we here to rock this place
Keepin’ it tight like Hannibal, Mr. T, Murdock, and Face
What a disgrace, I think it’s time the man paid the bills
Fightin’ for what’s right ‘cause we got the skills
Give ya the chills with that reggae-funk, ska, rock explosion
Smokin’ up the herb and drinking down all the potion
Just like the ocean has sunken treasure,
The Cosmic Egg style have many hidden pleasure
Forever and forever may be just one day,
But ya know my flow can never be severed, so I’m on my way
Ay! Verbal gymnastics and my lyrical genius
Makes the guys wanna beat me down when all the girls want my penis
Seen us chillin’ up at the bar, tellin’ jokes, havin’ drinks
All them honeys know I’m on the brink

Chorus

push back

Written By: dylan cowles

Another day is gone
I’m gonna sing a song
All through the night until I, I see the morning sun
Then I’m gonna rest my head, get up and start again
So much for me to do, I guess it never ends

I have fallen under the influence ‘cause it’s become my crutch
The world’s crashing down on me, I’m trying to hold it up

Through all this money shine, will we find the keys in time
To unlock all of the doors that keep us trapped inside our minds
Life’s just a video game, get the high, score leave your name
It’ll all be erased some time when someone better plays

I have fallen under the influence, it’s become my crutch
The world’s crashing down on me, I’m trying to hold it up
I just want to relax, and just stop pushing back,
Have my fun, let myself become one with myself
A little breathing room would help me relax
And then I’d stop pushing back

If you quit pushing me, I’ll quit pushing back
Quit pushing me, I quit pushing back

I have fallen under the influence ‘cause it’s become my crutch
The world’s crashing down on me, I’m trying to hold it up
I just want to relax, and just stop pushing back,
Have my fun, let myself become one with myself
A little breathing room would help me relax
And then I’d stop pushing back
