Will Coles

The talented, hard-grooving Will Coles is first-call drummer for most bands in Charlottesville. His precise beats, power, and stylistic versatility put him on the drum throne for numerous funk, rock, hip-hop, and soul artists. He's a founding member of soul band, The Hamiltons, helping to provide the rhythmic foundation for the Ezra Hamilton's soaring voice. Will joined Soko in the studio for their second album, Two, laying down the grooves for Joy of Love and Plant the Sky. He played with the band for the only supporting concert of that album on May 11, 2006 at Gravity Lounge in Charlottesville.
