Izzy Lamberti

Hi, my name is Izzy Lamberti and I am a 17-year-old female drummer from New Jersey. I have been playing for over 10 years and have been influenced by various artists: Queen, Miley Cyrus, Fleetwood Mac, Anika Niles, and many more. This is my third year being a part of the Hit Like A Girl Contest and every year I am so excited to be involved.
I’ve played for multiple recording artists and I’m in several bands. Over the years I have been blessed to be able to perform and use my music to help several fundraisers such as “Light of Day”, “Kick Cancer Overboard”, “ Epilepsy Foundation” and Brookdale College CVA Gallery where I met Steven Van Zandt and Carmine Appice. I’ve worked with a hip-hop band, which was a “mash-up” initiative with The boys and girls club of America. I also had the opportunity to meet several famous drummers: Bernard Purdie, Will Calhoun, Jay Weinberg, and Max Weinberg.
In 2019 I participated in the “Hit Like A Girl” contest and was awarded the Berklee 5-week Aspire intensive Scholarship. It was the most amazing experience! I realized how much I need and want to learn about music. This is where I discovered the Berklee “Rock Workshop”, which I applied for the following year. I was gratefully awarded that scholarship in summer 2020. It was remote due to covid but it was still awesome. As you can see I LOVE playing the drums…rhythm is forever in my soul! This song I chose to play is an expression of how happy I am to be in this contest.

    Izzy is an awesome young lady! Intelligent, athletic, sweet and one of all the best drummer I know!! I’ve know Izzy since she was 2 years old and have watched her grow into the beautiful young lady she is today and have enjoyed watching her grow into the awesome drummer she is! She’s a natural and so unique and authentic in her approach. She just keeps getting better each year and I know she will do amazing things with her craft as she continues with her education and her love of music!

    Izzy is awesome. I stumbled onto her talent while flipping thru Tik Tok. Her passion and joy for drumming is an inspiration. Since I was 10 years old, I’ve wanted to learn to play guitar. So in 2018, I was diagnosed with an incurable blood cancer so my “to do” list became part of my bucket list. I’m now 57 and I try to play/practice every day after work. Recently I was finding it difficult to practice every day, but then I saw how happy and elated Izzy looks when she is playing. That pure joy inspired me to keep practicing and push on to try to find that same joy. So, Izzy, while you may be young, you should understand that you are a pure inspiration to many, even someone old like me. Thank you for sharing your joy.

    TikTok introduced me to you, unbelievable! It’s amazing that Roundabout is even on the radar of a young kid! Great song and you certainly do it justice! Hope to see you in a killer band some day!

    I am not a follower but because of the algorithms your videos pop up from time to time. You are really good. There are some other girl drummers on tik tok. All pretty good. Do you follow any of them

  18. Brian Becker on August 20, 2021 at 7:43 pm

    I love your videos. You rock! Plus you are beautiful
