Hi! I’m Léa, a drummer from Lyon, France! It’s been years since I wanted to participate to the Hit Like A Girl contest so here I am! I started learning drums when I was 11, and it has never left me since. I began to learn jazz & latin music, then I discovered rock & punk rock. The first big show I saw, Green Day, was a turning point in my life! I knew then that I wanted to be a musician, play live, and learn how to rock’n’roll! It may sound cheesy but drumming and and being able to share it with people is the thing that makes me the happiest in the world.
I currently play with Franck Carducci & The Fantastic Squad (prog/rock band with a lot of glitter) and I’ve been fortunate enough to tour in France, Spain, and UK despite the pandemic. I’m also a drum teacher and it’s really cool to be able to inspire kids, especially little girls : you can be a woman and a badass on the drums!
I wanted to share a cover I did last year of The Pretender by The Foo Fighters, because Taylor Hawkins is one of my favorite drummers ever and I wanted to pay homage to him.
Good luck everyone! It’s amazing to see all the talented female drummers out there. We rock!
