Drums


Eliot Doyle was born on March 26, 1991 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Growing up his earliest exposure to music was that of bands The Cream and Santana, as well as classical composers Beethoven, Mozart, and Tchaikovsky. Although Eliot had an affinity towards the drums, as a child he was put in piano lessons instead at the age of five and did not have the opportunity to pick up the sticks until joining school concert band at the age of ten. After a year of practicing on pads, the floor, couches, and imaginary drum kits, Eliot received his first real drum kit at the age of eleven. Never having had drum lessons growing up, he used the internet, videos, and recordings instead as his tool for learning drums whilst emulating drummers Buddy Rich, Dennis Chambers, Neil Peart, Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl, Vinnie Paul and many more. Throughout high school Eliot continued playing in jazz band, community concert band, rock bands, and jazz combos outside of school. After high school, Eliot enrolled in the Jazz Studies Program at Capilano University in North Vancouver where he has studied music theory, music history, composition, and different musical styles in depth for the past three years. Outside of music, Eliot enjoys sailing, British satirical comedy, painting, philosophy, and a couple shots of Fireball whiskey every now and then.
