Lyle Riddle uses the Element Grinder 5A with i-zone! Lyle started playing drums around the age of 12. By the time he was 17 years old he went on his first nationwide tour with the band slick shoes from OC to Chicago’s Cornerstone music festival. In 2004, Lyle was recruited by OCDP to become an apprentice drum builder. After learning the ins and outs of drum building, Lyle spent a few months drum teaching for various artists on a world wide touring circuit.

After much inspiration from the road, Lyle went back to the rehearsal space and spent hours on end rehearsing and studying with other drummers such as Gil Sharon. After a few years of playing in local So Cal/hardcore punk bands, Lyle joined he indie rock band Astra Heights in 2008 and signed to Universal Republic Records.

After a few years of recording and touring with Astra Heights, Lyle joined the Venice beach based band, Terraplane Sun in 2011. The band has had several major film/commercial placements, TV appearances, national radio airplay and several blog features as an independent band. In 2013 the band signed with Trauma/Caroline records and toured supporting bands like Imagine Dragons, Phoenix, Alt J and many more.

After Terraplane Sun went on a hiatus, Lyle did a string of shows sitting in for the 80’s band, Bow Wow Wow. He currently is playing/writing with the up and coming rock band Well Hung Heart and is touring with the LA based band OSLO filling in for NO DOUBT/DREAMCAR drummer, Adrian Young. Lyle is also teaching private drum lessons in San Diego where he resides.

Lyle loves to play the Grinder 5As. They have a great response of a light weight stick but also have the durability to endure a real beating.
