Reilly Noel Thompson
Thanks so much for the opportunity to participate and support other female drummers!
My name is Reilly Noel Thompson and I live in Buffalo New York. I am 17 and currently a Junior in High School. I am a fourth generation drummer in my family, and have been playing since I was 5 years old. Due to the COVID challenges, I didn't have the opportunity to record a new video. Please enjoy a montage of a couple recordings of past performances.
Besides performing with my Middle and High School Jazz Bands, I began playing with my church’s Middle School Ministry when I was 12. At 14 I was the youngest and the first female drummer to be offered to perform with our Worship Team at Church. I play in rotation each month to 1200 people over any weekend services.
I am also the drummer for the Pop Punk band, "Among the Wolves". We play at local venues in Buffalo and I recently recorded my first single with the band.
Recently I was blessed with the opportunity to travel with our Mission Team to Zambia the last two years where I was able to help serve the community of Choma through ministry and music.
Music and drums are a huge passion for me! As decide on my future direction and University choice, I am thankful for the support of my family, friends, worship leaders, and teachers who have been an amazing inspiration to me!
Thank you Hit Like a Girl Contest for the opportunity you provide for all female drummers!
