Duke Thornley

Drums and Percussion




A 20-year veteran of the Toronto, London, and Vancouver music scenes, Duke approaches percussion with equal parts art and science. After working with Christian previously in The iD, he went on to work with various ensembles, including Sloth Machine, a Vancouver-based band that included Tobin Frank (Spirit of the West) in the lineup. Now firmly back in Ontario, Duke is enjoying working with Christian again, as well as Jeff and Greg - solid musicians (and great guys) both.

Outside of music, Duke enjoys photography and travel. Previous trips have included a train journey from Hong Kong to Helsinki, and two straight weeks on a bus in an endurance-testing circumnavigation of Australia.
