FLYER


CURTIS COWAN – Rhythm guitar, vocals
Curtis began playing the guitar at age ten and taught himself to play piano at fifteen. It was at this point when he began gigging with his father's band, “Rambunctious. He started touring shortly after graduating high school.

Prior to forming “ Flyer”, he was a member the musical group, “The Hornets” which covered “The Beatles” and other British Invasion songs. He fronted; “The Notables Show Band”, “The Bowery Boys” and “Frank McCormack and the Country Macs” which was the house band for Vancouver's Arlington Cabaret. During this tenure, he performed in dinner theaters in Saskatchewan before forming "Flyer" in 2010.

LAWRIE SHERMAN - Lead guitar,vocals
Lawrie was born in Victoria British Columbia he moved to Vancouver and like so many got bitten by the British Invasion. Later the British Blues based bands became a large influence that has persisted to this day. That path led to the local scene playing in different bands from the seventies to present for such events as Amnesty International and The Vancouver Sun Run recurring yearly as well as some local recording.


JACK MCLELLAND – Bass, vocals
Jack was born in Vancouver,BC. He comes from a musical family and was introduced to the bass guitar through his brother in 1970. For ten years, he played the club circuit and dances, with such bands as Shotgun and Crosswinds. After that, he took a break from music to raise a family. But is now back in the music industry with Flyer. His musical influences as far as bass are, Jaco Pastorious, Ray Brown, Tiran Porter, Larry Graham, Jeff Berlin, Ed Friedland and Getty Lee. Jack is a versatile player, and can play any style from rock to jazz.


DAN HARRISON - Drums, vocals
Dan was born in Vancouver, BC and called it home all his life. He began playing drums in the mid-sixties after some childhood buddies suggested forming a band. At that time rock and roll had really begun breaking through the ice of conservative AM radio formats. By the beginning of 1965 Dan and his teenage pals had obtained enough gear to equip their first ‘rock combo’

Eventually Dan joined a Vancouver band called the ‘Shades of Black’. This was a more professional organization with higher skills, good vocalists and actual management. By 1969 the Shades of Black had become ‘Steel Wool’, the long-haired rockers forming a ‘resident’ band at Vancouver’s ‘Big Mother’ coffee house.

In 1974, he became drummer in an established band called Bullet. For the next four years Dan travelled western Canada playing the bar and night club circuit. It was during this period, while working full-time from four to six nights per week that he completed his ‘rock band apprenticeship’. Dan is a solid experienced drummer with excellent meter.
