Annabel Gracey

Hello! My name is Annabel Gracey and I'm a 13 year old drummer from Bradford, in the UK. I have been playing drums for 5 years and I am part of 2 rock bands - one at school, where I hold a music scholarship and one at Leeds College of Music, which I attend on a Saturday. I am currently working towards my Grade 8 drums, and previously achieved Grade 6 with distinction. Last year, I was in School of Rock The Musical in London and played the part of Freddy, the drummer for 12 months. I was and am the first girl drummer to be in the show and as the Freddy was a boy's role, it had to be authorised by the US production team and Andrew Lloyd Webber. I have done many promotion events for School of Rock, such as National TV - Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Private 70th Birthday Party, where I performed with Tim Minchin and Michael Ball in front of guests such as Elton John, Rowan Atkinson, Paul McCartney and many more famous faces, Amazon Black Friday advert, a book launch with Graham Norton and met many famous celebrities who came to watch the show. In late 2018, I applied for Young Drummer of the Year and made it to the top 40. My favourite drummers are Roger Taylor, who has been a massive inspiration to me since I started playing and Cherisse Osei, who also inspires me as she proves that girls are just as good as boys at playing the drums, and this is what I want to show people. I have a huge passion for music and I hope you can see this through my playing. In my video I am performing 'Assassin' by Muse and I hope you enjoy!
