IT BEGAN WITH -

A burning desire for music, drumming,
the industry, touring and being on stage.

I am a 31 year old female drummer and have been playing for 16 years now.

I spent the greater part of my Drum Life focusing on personal style, experimenting with different genres and techniques, so I could be considered an all round session drummer, both Live and in Studio. During the years of being a self taught drummer, I sessioned for Groups / Artists such as: Chix With Stix, Josie Field, Melanie Lowe, The Sick-Leaves, 1st Project and Broadway Screamer.
