HIT LIKE A GIRL 2019 SUBMISSION BIO
Robyn Bond
robyn.bond8@gmail.com

After rising from the ashes of cringey high school music projects, 21 year old Robyn Bond now lives in Toronto and plays drums in/contributes to a number of projects. She started teaching herself drums at age 6 when her parents gave her an acoustic starter set after she had tried out all the pots. A strong sense of rhythm came naturally to her, and she continues to play the drums as the way she expresses herself and fulfills her fundamental needs. She has played in multiple projects, toured in Canada and the United States, written and released the drum parts for a number of songs, and, on one occasion, self-administered a drum stick shiner with the help of a rack tom rebound.
Robyn seeks to infuse influences from various genres, such as rock, punk, alternative, indie, and pop and is inspired to play by artists such as Mitch Mitchell, Nick Petersen, Anika Nilles, Justin Vernon, Bradley Hale, George Daniel, and Jon Beavis. Her variety of influences allows her to create a unique approach that accompanies and enhances the projects she is involved in. When she is onstage behind her kit and focusing on her craft she is also known for her unique (yet still embarrassing) drum faces and hair whipping. She is working to reach a level of technical proficiency that will match her mental perfectionism. It is a gradual process but one that won’t be abandoned. She is a firm practitioner of drumming as an art and continually challenges herself to expand the creative boundaries of her style while still seeking to make accessible and enjoyable music.
In her video submission, Dead Planet, a song written by band mate Evan Moore about surreal and futuristic escapism, Robyn demonstrates her energetic passion for her art. She works to create anticipation in the listener while moving between pace changes with precision. As is typical with many of her drum parts, the percussion drives the song and she has a penchant for the unpredictable. She does not subscribe to a cookie-cutter, metronome-based expected percussion but keeps the audience engaged. Her skill and innovation, along with her exciting performance style, makes for a memorable and endearing experience.
Music is, and always will be, Robyn’s unshakeable fixation, rhythm being the backbone of any worthwhile piece or song. She is working on her proficiency on other instruments and her ability and confidence to learn only exists because of a strong foundation and understanding of drums and rhythm. Robyn wants to collaboratively create something good enough to satisfy her insatiable need for self-actualization. Without a doubt, she will do it with drumsticks in hand and feet on the pedals.

    Grampa & I looked to a famous drummer to help in our comment. “ Every drummer that had a name, had a name because of his individual playing. He didn’t sound like anybody else. So everybody that I ever listened to, in some form influenced my taste.”
    Buddy Rich.
    Well done Robyn & good luck. ❤️
