Chloé Martin

I started my drumming journey 4 years ago. Having tried playing multiple instruments without success I stoped playing music for a couple of years. After stumbling upon some wicked drum videos from drummers like Joey Jordison, Tre Cool, Travis Barker, Dave Grohl and Buddy Rich, I knew that was going to be me one day. And so my journey began! Even though these drummers are very different and stand out from each other, they all influenced my playing in different ways. Dave Grohl influenced my attitude while Buddy Rich influenced my technique. Being the strange metalhead kid at my school, I never really fitted in, but when I hopped behind the kit, I felt like that was where I belonged all this time. I wasn't the strange shy girl anymore. I was a cool drummer! Thinking about playing a song from any of my favourite drummers was just an unattainable dream for 11 year old me. Hence why I chose to enter this contest with "Play" by Dave Grohl. I dedicate this song to my younger self.

A big thank you to my family who supported me, as well as my amazing support team from school of rock Orléans. Truly couldn’t have done it without them!
