Most recently drummer Charles Wiley joined The Electric Vinyl family. Charles has been playing music for over 25 years, starting out playing with his father and brother as a child. Charles studied music theory at Yavapai College in Prescott, Arizona, and later studied with drummer Gil Sharone, who is known for his work with Marilyn Manson, Dillinger Escape Plan and Stolen Babies. Charles also studied with legendary big band drummer Ed Shaughnessy, probably best known for his years as the drummer for The Tonight Show Band on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. To Charles, the drumset is a musical instrument that he feels needs to be explored and tested further. “I’m not a drummer,” he will tell you, “I am a musician who plays the drums.”
