Ava Maturo

United States

I am Ava Maturo and I started playing drums at age 7 at the start of the Covid 19 pandemic lockdowns with my dad learning bass guitar as an activity to enjoy during those uncertain times. The Scottish band Biffy Clyro became one of my favorite bands and i decided to learn their song “ Bubbles” as one of our first band projects with my father and a guitarist friend. We made a video of Bubbles in January of 2021 which was aired on a Southern California news station KUSI in April of 2021. The excitement of the success in practicing and achieving a goal encouraged me to continue with my learning and playing in a full band format with very experienced musicians who have been very instrumental in helping me in my learning progress. We played our first live show in October of 2021 and recorded a Christmas video of Carol of the Bells in December of 2021. I am recording a new video in May of 2022 with a group of musicians which unfortunately will not be ready for the Hit Like A Girl competition this year.
The video submitted is a compilation of some of my accomplishments in the last year. Please visit my Vimeo page “Clone Plus 1 Band” if you are interested in seeing my future projects.
Thank you!
Rock On!
