Sophie Tracy

My name is Sophie Tracy, I'm 12 years old and I am from Ireland. I have been playing drums and entering Hit Like a Girl since I was 7. I recorded this song in my parents friend's studio. This was very exciting because Cliff plays in a very famous Irish band called Picture This who I have done covers of in the past.

I have been lucky enough to play on Irish TV a few times including on The Late Late Show, the biggest talk show in the country, to over a million viewers. I have also played with prominent local cover bands and featured in Tom Tom magazine as well as a few local papers.

My favourite bands include Green Day, Twenty One Pilots, Avenged Sevenfold and Disturbed. My favourite drummers are Tre Cool, The Rev and Mike Portnoy.

Outside of drumming my biggest love is Gaelic football. It is an Irish sport and I play for the a team called St Olafs. Dublin are my favourite county team and I go to see them play whenever I can and even travel around the country to see them play. If I'm not drumming you can be pretty sure I'm outside kicking a ball.

I'm very excited to be entering Hit Like a Girl again this year. The song I chose to play is Blackest Eyes by Porcupine Tree. I picked this song because of its great groove and challenging time signatures. I really enjoyed playing it and hope you enjoy listening to it.
