After successfully supporting others as a drummer, Ed Shockley, the guiding force behind vinyl shockley, decided to finally pursue his dream. As a singing drummer, Ed had been discouraged from attempting to “front” a band from behind the kit. “Different managers and record companies had asked me to move either to the keyboards or out front to more effectively lead a band, and I’ve tried it all. But nothing ever feels as good or as natural to me as singing and playing drums.”
So Ed went back to his roots to put together vinyl shockley. “There is a type of music that has always appealed to me, a little off-center, that reflects the influences that rhythm & blues and hillbilly music have on each other.” The way they come together, in Ed’s mind, is unique. Finding like-minded musicians to create this music proved to be a challenge. After several starts and stops Ed finally found a group of musicians that understood the flavor he was looking for and the band’s first CD followed.
