Delaney Jaster

My name is Delaney Jaster. I am 14 years old. I live in Kansas. I have been drumming since I was little, but started to take it serious after my first talent show in 3rd Grade. I enjoyed the feeling I had rocking out on stage and how it inspired me to learn more and more about it. I would listen to bands such as Avenged Sevenfold, Beartooth, and Bullet for My Valentine and would sit behind my drums and practice immediately. My family is a huge support system and encouraged me to build on my talent. I joined School Of Rock for a couple of years and learned how to work together in a band and on stage performance.

I decided to branch off and work with drummers in the professional field. I have worked with them on a variety of different styles. By doing this I have been able to take what I have learned and turn it into my own style of music. I practice drumming every day, whether it be learning new styles, working on cover songs with challenging beats, to making new solos.

I currently have started a new band with my guitarist. Our band name is DFITD. @dfitdmusic @del_jay123 We have written all of our songs and are ready to start performing! Drumming is my therapy. The solo I am using for the Hit Like A Girl contest is something that I have written. I record in my basement, that I have set up as my band room. When I am drumming it is my "Happy Place." I am able to be me and lose my thoughts, which is usually when I come up with my best beats.

My dream and goal is to perform on a big stage in front of thousands of people with my band. Performing in front of others is uplifting because I like to see how music brings a whole crowd of people together. Throughout my musical journey I have met some really amazing people. Influences from Kansas City have been Jan Faircloth, Go-Go Ray, Kent Burnham, Cody Miller, JoJo Valdez and the rest of the staff from Explorers Percussion and Doug Kenworthy and Larry "Bowler" from Big Dudes Music. Hit Like A Girl is a wonderful opportunity to work with talented female drummers from around the World and to inspire young girls that when they set their minds on something they can do and be anything they want!

Good Luck Everyone!

    It’s important to have fun. It’s obvious you have that covered. Your instrument is being displayed in its purist form, which I love. I can best describe your entry as an old hot rod, no bells and whistles needed. All I see and hear is all motor!!! Stay true to yourself and you will go far. The big stage is reserving a spot for you deljay.
