Bayleigh Plumptre

Hi, I'm Bayleigh from Nottingham, UK. I am 9 years old and started playing the drums, with no previous musical experience, when I was 6 after seeing Warpaint, Sigrid and The XX perform on TV at Glastonbury. My favourite drummers are Danny Carey, John Bonham, Cindy Blackman and Amanda Dal. My favourite songs to play are Tool songs as I like a challenge. Some Tool songs can have as many as 8 different time signatures. That is why I have chosen to play Danny Carey's version of Led Zeppelin's No quarter with a double bass drum. I also play in Nottingham Youth Band drumming to orchestral songs and songs from musicals. I read music and I am working towards my Trinity college grade 8 that I hope to take this year. I'd love to be a famous drummer and to play for Billie Eilish one day!
