Sheldon "Shay" Haley (born December 18, 1975), also known as Shade, is an American drummer, rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer. He is a member of the funk rock band N*E*R*D, alongside fellow Virginia musicians Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo. His role in the band is often questioned, but in a 2010 interview, Williams stated that Haley is "the root of the band" and "[Haley] keeps everyone grounded and together."[1]

Personal life[edit]

In November 2010, he married Jackie Garcia, the former girlfriend of murdered NFL Safety Sean Taylor[2][3][4][5] and niece of actor Andy Garcia.
