Karla Martin

United States

I started playing the Drums in the mid 80’s when female drummers were not common. Hard work and perseverance paid off and I’ve been fortunate to be able to play with some great fellow musicians through the years. This last year has been great. My band, RELENTLESS, is playing out quite often and we’re looking forward to a great season this year! I’m playing my 5 piece Pearl Export kit with a Pork Pie Snare with Zildjian A Customs cymbals. I chose this 38 Special song, Back Where You Belong, to honor my friend who is now the drummer for them! He was a kind and helpful person a long time ago when he was playing in a band and would let me sit in on the drums. I love playing and I hope I’ll be able to play for a long time to come.

    “Right Where You Belong” is a great choice, Karla. On the drums, on top of the world, yeah………..right where you belong. Your timing and emphasis at every point were perfect. I am anything but an expert, but one need not be an expert to recognize your talent and passion. Everyone here is proud to call you a fellow Hodag.
