Amy Harrison

Hi, my name is Amy Harrison and I am from Bolton, UK. I am 17 years old and I have been drumming for around 6 years. I am currently studying music at college as one of my A Levels where I have performed as part of a band and drummed in my school's musical. I hope to pursue a career in music whether that is performing in a band, working as a session drummer or as a music therapist. My first instrument was the piano which started my passion for music and eventually led me to take up drumming and I have recently been teaching myself the guitar and ukulele.

From a young age, I have always loved going to live concerts and it's clear that my drumming style and the songs I choose to play are heavily influenced by the bands I have seen. Matt Helders is one of my biggest inspirations for drumming so I decided to cover an Arctic Monkeys song for this competition. Josh Dun, Mini Fairhurst and Sarah Thawer have all influenced my playing as well.

Last year, during the lockdown, I created my youtube channel and Instagram account for entertainment and began to share my drum covers to the world. I have met and collaborated with so many talented musicians who have all motivated me to continue this journey. This is my first year entering the Hit Like A Girl contest and I feel as though this is a great opportunity to not only showcase my own drumming but also discover various other amazing female drummers!
