My name is Meltem. I was born in Izmir, Turkey. Currently I’ve been living and working in Istanbul as a graphic designer. I've bought my first electronic drum set almost 8 years ago, and drumming have become my passion since then. While growing up, my love for music was fostered by my family, and especially by my sister. She introduced me to big acts like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Nirvana and Queen which made me very interested in drums.
Although I played classical piano and guitar when I was younger, I didn’t have the chance to play the drums until I was 33 years old. Because the drums have been a big dream of mine, since I started playing them, I’ve been working consistently and started to take private lessons frequently to improve my skills. After having a basic foundation, I started playing with rock cover bands and had a chance to play live for 4 years. Currently I decided to start writing and playing my own music to improve my musicality and versatility on drumset, so for this contest, I wrote my own song and played drums on it. My ultimate dreams are to keep on learning, playing on stage, writing and recording my own music as much as I can.

This song is consisting of 3 different genres since I've always been very interested in different genres of music and versatile drummers. (I'm sending my respect and regards to Jojo Mayer on the 2nd part.)
