Members:Erb Jackson (Right)
Erb Jackson grew up in Detroit, Michigan where his father was a Baptist preacher who did not support his son’s taste in music. However, Erb was born a free soul with a rebellious spirit and in his early teen years he found himself seduced by metal music when he attended a concert with one of his friends. Erb never looked back! Music soon became an escape from school where he found himself disinterested and uninspired. Erb takes musical inspiration from bands like Black Sabbath, Megadeath, and Slayer.
After years of dedicating himself to his music, Erb realized that he needed to make a drastic change in his life, so he packed his car one Sunday morning and headed west. He found himself bouncing around Arizona and California before settling down in Hollywood where he felt his passion for music could thrive.
William "Jay" Leirmann (Middle)
William "Jay" Leirmann was born in 1979 in Georgia, but grew up mostly on the Mississippi coast. His dad was responsible for sitting him down at the age of 5 with drumsticks and headphones, explaining how it all worked. Finally, at the age of 13, Jay's mom agreed to let him have a kit in the house. Jay draws inspiration from many bands, including Pink Floyd, Grateful Dead, Smashing Pumpkins, Rush, Metallica, Guns n Roses, Nirvana, and Soundgarden. Over the next 10 years, he played in a few punk projects, a death metal project, a jazz ensemble, and a classic rock band. After college, he joined one of his longtime favorite local bands, Winterset, where he found himself touring the Southeast in the underground circuit for about 3 years.
Following the retirement of his band mates, Jay played a brief stint with KFP, a local punk project. After moving to Los Angeles, Jay answered an ad for a band called Ayin Aleph. While on tour with Aleph, he developed a camaraderie with guitar player, Scott Ramsay. Scott introduced him to Chiyo and Erb of Oustium. The following months would prove to be what Jay was searching for, an up-and-coming band with the same values Jay was used to, and a drive to always push themselves musically.
Alvaro "Chiyo" Mossmann (Left)
Chiyo was born in 1987 in a small city located in southern Brazil. His first exposure to music was through his parents who were huge fans of Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd and Nazareth. At 11 years old Chiyo began to play his father’s acoustic guitars. Although the guitar was difficult to play, it gave him an avenue to express his the feelings and ideas he kept buried inside. Overtime, Chiyo was able to advance as a guitarist and train his voice as a backup vocalist in local metal bands.
Eventually, it became evident that Brazil was not the right place to pursue his dreams of being in a successful metal band, so he made a leap of faith that landed him in Los Angeles, California, where he felt he could find like-minded and determined band mates. Soon after, Chiyo established contact with Erb Jackson and the pair would go on to form the band Oustium.
Singer/songwriter Kevin Marshall is the founder and bandleader of The J-Walkers. He was a founder and front man for a popular Charlotte NC based band The Wax Gurus. The Wax Gurus enjoyed the success of their record "Burning Sky" recorded with local producer Jamie Hoover in 2002. Since then Kevin Marshall has established himself in the regional songwriting community. Gigi Dover And The Big Love recorded a song written by Kevin titled "A Better Place". You can find that cut on their record "The Avocado Sessions". A VA based band Sparks Will Fly recorded a song titled "So Bad" written by Kevin Marshall as well as local artist covering his songs. He has been writing, producing and recording for many years. After all these years since his last record with The Wax Gurus he decided to do it again with a newly released record "Am I Missing Something" co-produced with Eric Lovell at The Blu Bubble Studio in Charlotte NC. The sound on the new record is best described as a mix of genres and eras, along with a blend of musical influences with a common thread throughout.
The J-Walkers consist of some of Charlotte NC's top studio and stage musicians; Eric Lovell, Gigi Dover, Matthew Carter, Mike Bader, Tim McDonnell, Rick Blackwell, Jason Atkins, Phillip Carias, and Doug Henry.
