Georgia Challinor

My Name is Georgia and I’ve been playing drums for 15 years. I started out when I was 8 inspired by the likes of Tre Cool and Travis Barker. Throughout my teenage years I played in multiple bands establishing a name for myself as a drummer.

In 2014, I studied a Bachelors degree in Drums and Percussion at the British and Irish Modern Music (BIMM) Institute . During my time there, I had some incredible opportunities performing for reputable music management, labels and A&R (Transgressive, Island Records, Syco Music). I was also the drummer for an alternative band called ‘Evertim’ where I found my feet extensively touring the UK, getting to play with the likes of Mallory Knox, Dream State and Roam, aswell as receiving radio play by Daniel P Carter on the Radio One Rock Show.

I currently play for an acoustic emo artist called Luke Rainsford who has appeared at festivals such as 2000 Trees and Slam Dunk and toured the UK, Europe and Canada alongside the likes of Holding Absence, As It Is, Lizzy Farrall, Dream State and Cory Wells. I cannot wait for what 2020 has in store for him.

I’ve been following Hit Like a Girl for years and I’m so thankful for all it’s doing for the community.

    You had me at the start, Georgia!
    My vote just instinctively went to you after scrolling through other more voted for entries, but some of them didn’t really get through me. They lacked skill and originality. That’s when it hit me (pun intended) – Never mind the numbers.

    Cheers to drumming.
    Its been only a year and a half since I started drumming, but I love every part of it, and I hope to put in my entry in full galore next year! 😀
