Bayleigh Bisi Plumptre
Hi, I’m Bayleigh Bisi, I’m 10 years old from Nottingham, England.
I got into drumming at the age of 6 after watching Glastonbury Festival with my dad and being blown away by Warpaint’s drummer Stella Mozgawa.
This year I am amongst the youngest ever female drummer to of passed a Trinity Rock & Pop, grade 8 ( highest level)exam with merit; being just 4 marks off a distinction.
Here is my entry performance- 3 songs 5 mins long-
Song 1 War pigs (Black Sabbath)
Song 2 Lateralus (Tool)
Song 3 Schism (Tool)
I play double Kickdrum and own a 32” symphonic gong. I also play ukulele, acoustic guitar and electric guitar. I am also in an orchestral band, we mostly play epic film scores and classical music.
Some of my favourite female drummers are Cindy Blackman, Jola (Adam Ant), Stella Mozgawa and Amanda Dal.
I love HLAG competition and hope more girls take up learning to play the drums.
