Jennifer Towns

Hey everybody - my name is Jen Towns - I am 46 years old and I live in Upstate NY (near Utica - kinda smack dab in the center of the state!). In between my work as an HR Manager and enjoying life to the fullest with my family and friends, a couple of years ago I decided to take the plunge and learn how to play drums - something I felt I always wanted to give a fair try, but I had always pushed off and let other life stuff get in the way. Little did I know that signing up to take a drum class was one of the best decisions I ever made - now I absolutely love to play, and even though I may have discovered drumming a little bit later in my life, I think that makes me even more excited about it. It's also given me my retirement plan - hope to continue to learn and grow, and maybe someday join a little local band or something and play. There are definitely days when the struggle is real, of course, but there is nothing like the feeling of finally learning something you've worked really hard to figure out - a new beat, a new song, whatever it is...

I am really excited to participate in HLAG contest this year. For my entry, I decided to play along to a drumless track by Seam Armitage - Cool Groove "Creation 1994". It really is a nice little slow groove - I hope you like it - I had a lot of fun learning and playing it. Enjoy! 🙂

    Nice work. I get tired of all the really fast stuff and metal. Very tasty. I live in Elmira NY. Not too far.

    Good luck,
