Hello! I’m Laura!
I started drumming at the age of 10 when my primary school inherited an old drum set. From that point most lunch times were spent trying to figure out how to play the drums in any decent manor!
Growing up drums and music pretty much took over my life. I started playing in bands at the age of 15 whilst volunteering at a local community arts project which allowed young bands to record and perform at weekly gig nights.
By the age of 20 I had being given some amazing opportunities but this was the point where I decided that I really wanted to try make a career out of playing and dedicated all my free time to practicing and playing with as many different artists and bands as I could to gain more experience.
Now 26, I’ve had the chance to play all over the UK, playing a variety of different genres from Grunge – Country in many different bands, I’ve been lucky to have some pretty awesome companies support me and to strive to improve my playing everyday.
Drums are awesome.
