Marisa Drums

United States

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,
xx Marisa
