Hi, I am Céline, a French 24-year-old drummer. I’ve been playing drums for almost my entire life.
I come from a family of musicians, both my parents are musicians, and my father, also a drummer, was the one who introduced me to the drum kit when I was about 2 or 3. I started taking percussion and drum lessons at 6. I discovered my passion for metal at the age of 13.
At 15, I started taking drum lessons with a well known drum teacher in Brittany where I live, Loïc Guilloux.
He took me several times to the “Trophée Sonor” which is a drumming contest hosted by Sonor in France. I won several prizes there, including the national “Trophée Sonor” in the “Excellence” category.
I also had a drum lesson with French metal drummer Franky Costanza (ex Dagoba, Blazing War Machine), who is also the founder of the "Serial Drummer" clothing line.
Music is my biggest passion (I am also a singer) and my dream is to play in a successful metal band, to tour all over the world and to connect with many amazing musicians. I am currently looking for a new metal band to play in and I hope to grow my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/epikamelot56/videos.
I have played many concerts, with orchestras, bands…
I chose my cover of “Naysayer” by Architects to enter the “Hit Like A Girl contest” because Dan Searle is a drummer that I look up to a lot, and I find that his drum parts really stand out in the world of metalcore music.

I am very happy to take part in this contest and wish good luck to all contestants!
