Anna V

I’m Anna V, and I’m thrilled to be entering the Hit Like A Girl Contest for my second time! I’m 13yrs old here shooting this video, about three and a half years into my drumming journey. Mostly, my playing has been in rock and pop, and I LOVE grooving out on some funk. Recently, I’ve been exploring more fusion styles of drumming, learning to utilize odd time signatures and working on my dynamics, all of which led me to choosing this song for my video. I love how the drums can contribute such melody and musicality in a song, not just provide a good solid 2/4 backbeat. Anika Nilles and Kaz Rodriguez are big influences on me for this, of course many others as well.

I hope you enjoy my cover video “The Journey” by Kaz Rodriguez! After this past year, I think we all need to take a journey somewhere, musically or otherwise!
