Hornsman Coyote comes from Belgrade, Serbia. Coming from a family with an artistic background, he has been active on the Serbian scene since he was very young. In 1994 he formed Eyesburn, a legendary crossover band that toured the whole of Europe and released 7 albums in Serbia. In 2004 Eyesburn collaborated with Max Cavalera (Soulfly), which resulted with the hit single “Moses” and a European tour supporting Soulfly. This collaboration was continued with the next Soulfly album „Dark Ages” and the song “Inner Spirit”. Coyote was a special guest at the “Dark Ages” European tour.
After touring with Soulfly, he decided to continue his career as a freelance solo artist. Since he had been into reggae and roots culture for years, the new sounds he composed came naturally. He packed his instrument into a small bag and left for London (UK) with the simple intention to play trombone in the roots reggae style. The first producer who gave Coyote a chance was jerry lions, a well-known guitar and bass player in many reggae bands. After that things began to run smoothly and Coyote recorded for many reggae producers like: Ras Muffet, Jah Works, Repentance Music, Paco TEN, Kris Naphtali… Till the present, Hornsman has had three 12”inch releases: Warning, Sign of the Times (Repentance music), Warrior Horns (Jah Works), Father Judge (Roots injection). His two latest instrumental albums will be released this year: Hornsman Coyote meets Jah Works “Brass roots” and Hornsman Coyote meets Ras Muffet.
Apart from playing the trombone, Coyote has also followed a singing career, which has resulted in a masterpiece, according to many, called What Next? . This album has been compiled by various producers like Neil Perch (Abassi, Zion Train), WikluhSky, Mc Milovan, Fat_Z and it has been released until the present only in Poland by Karrot Kommando. First single from this album is Glow Jah Light.
Coyote became known to the Polish audience through his cooperation with the greatest Polish ragamuffin band Vavamuffin. On their latest CD Innadibusu he composed and played Intro and Outro. He has been giving more and more concerts in Poland in recent years, and has, among others, taken part in the concert tour given by Joint Venture Sound System (biggest sound system from Poland) and Ghetto Priest (On-U Sound, Asian Dub Foundation, Juno Reactor) and the two biggest polish reggae festivals in Bielawa and Ostróda.
In the nearest future, an interesting project called Survival Unit is being planned, a joint venture by Ghetto Priest, Hornsman Coyote and WikluhSky (Bad Copy). The first effect is the upcoming Ghetto Priest album called “Mental Desert Project”.
