Harley Mitchell received her first drum kit at the age of 2, but her music career didn’t start until the age of 16. It wasn’t until years later did she start to play the drums and bass professionally. Born and raised in Clifton, New Jersey, she was surrounded by music her entire life and never had professional training or lessons. At the age of 12, her stepdad taught her how to play the guitar. When she was 15, her and her family moved to South Florida. One year later, her stepdad started to play in a cover band and they were searching for a bass player. Harley stepped up and moved on to the bass guitar for his band. From that point on, she started to gig regularly as a bass player, and occasionally would hop on the drums. In 2013, Harley became the bassist for a cover band called Project X. When she joined, she became close with the lead singer of the band, Heather Curi. They both shared an interest in original music, so they started an original band together called, Day 4.
In 2012, Harley decided to create her own YouTube channel of drum covers. As of today, she has over 19,000 subscribers, with one of her covers reaching over 3 million views. In 2018, Harley officially became a drummer for an 80’s cover band called Rubixx. She signed with Collision Drumsticks in July of 2020. Harley continues to leave her mark in the South Florida music scene.
