Katie Upton

Hi my name is Katie and I have been playing drums for 4 years. I've had drum lessons at school and at home but due to the pandemic I have been teaching myself. Last year, my neighbor had to build me my own drum room due to the fact he couldn't hear his own TV anymore! I like to practice 2 hours a day and due to lockdown I have been able to focus more on my drums. I chose to enter this competition to encourage other girls to pick up the sticks and I think the female drum community as a whole is really strong. I'm 15 years old and will be going to college in September to do a Music performance diploma. When I'm older, I would like to work somewhere within the music industry but my dream would be to tour with a band and making people happy with my music. I listen to a lot of heavy metal/rock. My all time favourite band is Slipknot but I like to listen to other bands such as foo fighters, korn, marilyn manson, linkin park and Paramore. I'd like to inspire people that its okay to be part of the 1% of the world that does something different to the rest. Other than drumming, i like to bake, play guitar and bass, and I do axe throwing too. This is the first proper contest I've entered as I'd like to put myself out there more!

    Good luck in the contest. Do you have a drum throne or stool? I hope your dream comes true and you get to tour the world. If you got the chance to play with a band or a solo artist who would it be? Would you ever play alto saxophone?

    Such strength and courage. You’ll make a great ambassador for girls drumming and I believe in you 110%. It’s so hard to stand for the things you truly love when, like you say, they are in a minority or different from social norms and I’m so happy you have found your strength to stand up and show the world how absolutely amazing and capable you are xox ps can I get a lift to the Caribbean on your private jet 😉😋
