Even as a child, Wylie Jones has always shown an affinity towards creating and performing music, singing his first words. He began playing the piano at age 7 and picked up the guitar at age 13. As a young man he was inspired heavily by Kirk Hammett of Mettalica and Jimmy Page/Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin. He remembers jamming out with his brother in their grandparents attic after discovering some Led Zeppelin albums up there. The two most life changing and pivotal musical moments in Jones life were being introduced to Bob Marley's music and seeing Fredrick "Toots" Hibbert perform for the first time. These two reggae sensations were fathers to Jones as an adolescent. Their music moved him to follow a peaceful path.

While Wylie breathes music from the heart of his being, he has yet another passion, long distance hiking. He has hiked the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, more than half of the Continental Divide Trail, the Colorado Trail (a few times), the Teton Crest Trail and countless other overnight and day hikes equaling over 10,000 miles travelled by foot on trail. Much inspiration for his songs (as well as his trail name “Crazy Horse”) came from experiences (from the highest highs to the lowest lows) on these walks.

Wylie has been the lead vocalist/guitarist for Antero Reggae Band for the last 9 years. And he has also been the keyboardist/ background vocalist for Mighty Joshua and the Zion #5 the last 2 years.?

Jones has also shared the stage with Toots and the Maytals, Culture, Awareness Arts Ensamble, Corey Harris, The Wailers, Gregory Isaacs, The Itals, Steel Pulse, The Abbysynians, The Meditations, Frankie Paul, Everton Blender, Morgan Heritage, Groundation, Michael Franti, Spear Head and Soldiers of Jah Army. Jones has sung backup vocals for Culture featuring Kennyata Hill, Puma Ptah (vocalist of Thievery Corporation) and Corey Harris to name a few. He has played with and worked in the studio with keyboardist/producer/musical director/stage manager Chris “Peanut” Whitley (Culture, The Itals, Corey Harris, Taj WeeksLutyn Fya, Burning Spear and many more). Jones has also played with Ras Mell (guitarist for Awareness Arts Ensemble and The Wailers), DJ Williams (guitarist for Karl Densons Tiny Universe and the DJ Williams Projekt), Gordon “Saxman” Jones (Corey Harris and DJ Williams Projekt), Mark Ingerham (Trumpets for DJ Williams Projekt and Bio Ritmo), OJ (keyboardist for Awareness Arts Ensemble) and Tommy Booker (keyboardist for the Southern Belles and Silo Effect)!

Wylie “Crazy Horse” Jones is currently touring in CO with his solo loop project and collaborating with many other talented artists to offer special performances.

Crazy Horse made our party a success. He learned a few new songs we wanted included easily and on time. He came over weeks before to scout out our backyard and we had a plan well in advance for the rainy weather. It was a perfect night and would hire again and recommend to any friends! Thank you Wylie!

We booked Antero for our wedding reception having seen them play in Richmond, VA. Wylie was absolutely great throughout the whole planning process. They had to bring extra equipment up in order to perform the music for the ceremony AND the reception, which they sorted with no hassle at all! The music was incredible, they did 2 requests for us which they nailed, and they pretty much made our wedding. The guests all commented on how great they were, and the whole band were friendly and professional at all times. Wylie also made the announcements throughout the wedding which was done very well. I could not recommend these guys highly enough. AAA+++ Cheers Guys!
