Freya Crosby

Hi, my name is Freya Crosby, I am 17 years old and have been playing drums since I was 8 years old. I play a wide range of genres such as pop, rock, funk, jazz, swing, blues, Latin and more and feel by playing a wide range, this helps me develop my creativity and develop as a musician. I am currently studying a diploma in Music, with the aim of completing a degree and becoming a professional musician. When I began playing the drums, it helped me grow in confidence as a person and makes me feel empowered, being proud to be a female drummer. I chose to play ‘Sing, Sing, Sing’ as my HLAG entry, as I feel this piece demonstrates technique, passion, creativity, and has a good swing! I am also the drummer in the band ‘Ivory Ocean’ and we are currently working on releasing our own original album. Drummers who have inspired me include Steve White, Meytal Cohen, Craig Blundell and Oli Wiseman. I have attended drum clinics/lessons with some of these drummers, being truly inspired by their skills and techniques.

    Great drumming Freya, from an old (ex) drummer in your village too. I always though that Sing, Sing, Sing showed Gene Krupa at his best.
    He and Ginger Baker of Cream once had a friendly drumming contest! – it ended as a draw.
    It’s a shame that your video sound recording doesn’t come over well enough on my small tablet’s speaker – all 3 tom-toms sound the same, but your technique is awesome – keep tapping those skins and the very best of luck in the competition’s next stage – you deserve to do very well. Jo
