Hello! I’m 27-year-old Amanda and I’m a session drummer. Thank you so much for looking at my video, I hope you enjoy it (or at least feel envious of my incredibly funky shirt 😂).
I grew up in Sweden where I spent a most of my childhood dancing and singing to my dad’s LP records. I think most of the family survived it, although my mum is still allergic to ABBA. On a positive note we now know that Pointer Sisters and Stevie Wonder sound surprisingly good in Swenglish.
Before falling in love with the drums at age 14 I tried the piano. Sadly, my one-finger rendition of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star was not as life changing as one would have hoped. Once I’d seen my first drum kit though, that was it. I quickly assembled a drum kit out of my mum’s shoe boxes and practice to the radio every day after school (I was a very hip teen).
Deciding that a job with a secure income and pension plan was slightly overrated, I moved to London seven years ago to study music. Learning new things and working on my craft is something I love! The dream is to always be working and one day have a practice space where I can practice as much and as loud as I want!
I’m very lucky to have supportive people around me whom without I wouldn’t be doing music. If I can inspire anyone else to do what they love and have the courage to be themselves then yaaay mission accomplished.
Lots of love
