Saori Sugimoto

I am Saori Sugimoto. I live in Japan.

I started playing the drums when I was 14 years old.
I was doing my homework listening to music.
Somehow, the beat of the drum that came into my ears, was impressive.
I didn't know anything about drums at that time, but I started tapping my limbs like a drummer.
It was very fun! It was an exciting experience!
I was fascinated to drums by that experience, then studied many music videos, and started drumming by self-learning.
In particular, I watched john bonham's performance over and over again.

As an adult, I was very worried about which life I should lead.
・ Life of employees with stable income
・ The life of an unstable musician
This may be a problem unique to Japan.
I first chose a stable office worker, but I couldn't forget my dream to become a musician, while working as an employee.
So I quit my job , and chose a journey as a musician.

For me, drums is a place where I can release my feelings.
The most happy treasure that helped create many friends and happy times!

I want as many people as possible to see me play, and I want as many people as possible to be interested in drums.
I want them to have fun and move their limbs like I did when I was 14 years old.
My dream is that there will be many more female drummers.

My drum policy is "Smile, Happy and Emotional”.
I hope you enjoy it with my drums.

Thank you,
