Harriet Cruickshank

United Kingdom

Hi everyone!

I’m Harriet (or Hattie), I’m 20 years old and this is my second time entering HLAG (first entry was 2018!). I am currently studying a Chemistry degree at the University of Warwick, but I am originally from a village in Somerset.
Despite having talent in chemistry, I am passionate about drums and have been playing for over 7 years. I’ve been in numerous bands since I started learning drums at school, playing various genres of music, but I have to say my favourite genres are jazz and funk!
Since studying at university, I have maintained my commitment to music by being part of the university’s Band Society where I got a chance to compete in the Battle Of The Bands as well as setting up for and playing at gigs. Before drums, I played the clarinet, where I would always choose the most rhythmic piece or part to play, which then lead to picking up the drums!
My current inspirations have got to be Nate Smith and Larnell Lewis.

Enjoy my entry of a cover of Soul Vaccination by Tower Of Power!
