Drew Stiles formed and joined bands as writer, singer and bassist-guitarist starting in the early 90’s after seeing Bad Brains, Fishbone, Meat Puppets, RHCP, Black Flag, Beastie Boys and others in the 80s punk scene. The honesty of rap, NWA, PE, Ice Cube, etc, heavily factored in, along with early influences Jackson 5, Beatles, Hendrix, Earth Wind and Fire, Zeppelin, Stones, James Brown, jazz, classical, funk, pop, etc.

He landed a major label deal (A&M Records) and a production deal (Shark Management) with bands Gin Gypsy and Smoothbrain. Stiles then formed the raw power trio, Yummy, who released an album on indie label Cross Records.


Yummy’s album, ‘Eleganté,’ produced and written by Stiles, garnered outstanding reviews and fan response. JUICEMagazine gave the band a rating of ‘10 out of 10,’ Rock N World wrote ‘Not since Guns N Roses have I heard a more dynamic debut album.’ And of Yummy’s performances The Jersey Journal wrote,’ Drew Stiles is part Iggy andpart Steven Tyler, a consummate showman who knows how to work an audience into a laughing, sweating frenzy.’

Venues played include CBGB’s, Webster Hall, Nightingales, Brownie’s, Arlene’s Grocery, Wetlands, L’Amour, Whisky a’Go Go and many others in Vermont, Mass, New York, Philly, D.C, South/North Carolina, California. Yummy also played Madison Square Garden and the Boston Fleet Center with WWE.
