Rowland & Tumblin'
Kyle Rowland dishes out a sauté of boisterous Chicago and swampy Texas blues with a pinch of West Coast swing. Danceable and listenable, his show will have you wanting more, with your toes tapping into the next morning. Rowland quickly and naturally developed his own sound. With help from a few of his heroes such as James Cotton, Lazy Lester, Hubert Sumlin, Matt “Guitar” Murphy and many others, Rowland learned specific techniques of stage presence, the music business, and several highly revered harmonica secrets. In August of 2022, Rowland signed an endorsement deal with harmonica company, Hohner, which he has proudly used for his entire career.
Busting his blisters in the Northern California area beginning in the early 1990s, Kenny has backed up musicians such as Billy Boy Arnold, Guitar Shorty, and has been a steady member in Sacramento hit bands The Huckelbucks and The Chromatics. Obtaining inspiration from his close friend Anson Funderburgh, Kenny captures the essence of Texas blues through each piercing note.
Previously touring the world with Charlie Musselwhite and R.J. Mischo, Mike's soulful bass lines uniquely define the sound of the band. Spending the majority of his 30 year career in the Bay Area, Mike's latest arrival in Sacramento has been rewarding for musicians and listeners alike. Mike's deep understanding of music theory provides a plethora of ideas, when the band is writing or learning a new song.
Newest member to Rowland & Tumblin', Myles, similar to Kyle, began honing his craft as a toddler, playing percussion on shows with his drummer father, Scott Silveira. From a young age, Myles has had the opportunity to back up Craig Horton, Alabama Mike, and even spend some of his childhood afternoons at John Lee Hooker's house. Myles has an AA degree in music, and has returned to Sacramento State to obtain a degree in History. His traditional approach and his progressive mind, create a hip dynamic in the band.
