Hi I’m Marisa from Boston, MA and I’ve been playing drums for over 10 years. Drumming makes me feel so alive and has given me the greatest outlet for stress and anxiety. I love playing anything loud, from pop punk to metal.
For my entry I decided to play a blink-182 song because my first drumming influence was Travis Barker and I never thought I’d be able to play his parts when I first started drumming! It’s exciting to see your own progress over time, especially when it’s sometimes hard to notice day to day. I hope this will inspire others to get started or keep going even when your goals seem far away.
As a musician who is also passionate about sustainability and climate justice, I wanted to uplift Music Declares Emergency, a group of artists, music industry professionals, and organizations using the power of music to call for cultural changes to create a greener, fairer, and better future. The climate crisis is impacting all of us and without further action there can be No Music On a Dead Planet.
Thanks for reading & watching,
