FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

Libby Scott & Dee Bradbery

Hey! Libby and Dee here! First of all, we just wanted to give a huge shout out to the team at Hit Like A Girl - thanks for putting this contest on each year, encouraging women of all ages to show the world their passion for drumming. You guys are legends!

One of the reasons that we love this contest so much, is that it gives people to opportunity to connect with drummers from all over the world… or from just around the corner.
In 2016, both of us entered and posted our videos in this global competition, only to realise that we live in the same city, not far from one another.

So we connected online, and stayed up to date with each others Facebook posts, and that was about it until a chance encounter at the end of 2016 - where we both happened to be in the same music store, at the same time! Crazy!

That was the first time we ever met face-to-face, and in 2017, we both made the finals of Hit Like A Girl (as separate entries) - the only Aussies who made it through that year!! Woohoo! We cheered each other on and celebrated the achievement - and this year, we decided to have some fun and enter together.

There’s something powerful in recognising that other female drummers (and men too!) aren’t competition or rivals, but rather comrades - people who can share their experiences and skills. We’re all working towards the same goal: to reach people with our music.

So for us, this video is all about breaking through our own mindsets and limitations - celebrating togetherness and supporting each other as women in the music industry. And hopefully we can continue to inspire others to get better at what they love doing.

Best of luck to everyone who’s entered,
Libby and Dee xx

Libby Scott: Libby recently graduated from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music and this will be her fourth year entering the Hit Like a Girl competition.
