Annelida/Session Artist

Charlie Nicholson

Drummer for over 20 years. Based out of Las Vegas, NV. I play drums for a band called Annelida and I’m always accepting session work. My influences draw from Phil Rudd and John Bonham to Joey Jordison and Jimmy Sullivan, to Thomas Pridgen, Tony Royster Jr., and then some. I received formal lessons from ages 5-11 and began performing professionally when I was 12. I was also member of my school drumline from 6th-12th grade at which point I started my touring career. These endeavors include artists such as Nature Talk, Amarionette, Violent New Breed, A Friend A Foe, This Romantic Tragedy, Survive This, Shiloh, Psychosexual, Tales We Tell and more. My goal with Canopus is to make these drums one of the staples in this evolving world of rock and roll.





Message to CANOPUS

Product (Drum Kit): YAIBA II Groove Kit
These drums are well built and sound huge! The booming Toms, the gut punching kick, the fat crack of the snare. The versatility of these drums is insane. They look just as good as they sound. The perfect, absolutely seamless finish. They’re elegant, yet so raw at the same time.
