Life and Career
De Lisle was born in Exeter, Ontario, Canada. He has been with the band for their whole career thus far, and is known for being the "long haired guy" in the group. However, as of 2017 he cut his hair. Aside from Smash Mouth, De Lisle is also an avid surfer, which may be an influence on surf sounds in Smash Mouth's music. He is also the writer of the band's single "Pacific Coast Party" and is credited with many others.
