Name: Faith Benson
Location: California, United States
My name is Faith Benson. I am 16 years old and I Hit Like A Girl! My drumming journey is five years strong now, and I truly believe this is what I’m meant to do for as long as I live.
This is my third year entering the Hit Like A Girl competition and I’m excited to share my newest composition. I absolutely love Hit Like A Girl because it inspires and motivates me to work, work, work on improving my drumming skills.
I am currently in a band called Crimson Apple with my three sisters. We recently relocated from Hawaii to California to pursue our musical endeavors. Our time in California has been a blast so far!
Although my main focus as a drummer has been with my band, I have been fortunate enough to work with several other musicians through both studio work and live performances. These experiences have helped to shape me as a musician and as a person.
My musical influences are: Tomoya Kanki (my favorite drummer), Anika Nilles, Josh Dun, Steve Smith, Neil Peart, Kimberly Thompson and so many more great drummers. I am so grateful to have studied under both Darryl Pelligrini (Hawaii) and Pat McGrath (California).
This year I decided to submit another original song I wrote entitled “Aoi Raion”. Accompanying me for the video performance are my sisters. I really tried to push myself as both a drummer and writer for this composition so I sincerely hope you enjoy. Thank you!
