Hi I’m Amy Harrison and I am an 18 year old drummer from Bolton, UK. I have been playing drums for around 7 years and I am currently studying music at college as one of my A Levels.
My first instrument was the piano which started my passion for music and eventually led me to take up drumming. Drumming allows me to express my creativity with freedom with my main inspirations being Matt Helders, Sarah Thawer, Josh Dun and Mini Fairhurst.
In 2020, I created my YouTube channel and Instagram account for entertainment during the lockdown and began making drum covers. Through this, I have met and collaborated with so many talented musicians who have all motivated me to continue this journey and I feel proud to be part of such a supportive community. I recently played my first gig with a live band which was so fun and I hope to do more in the future.
Last year, I was the winner of the Hit Like A Girl contest in the UK under 18’s category which I couldn’t believe. I am excited to be one of the judges of this year’s HLAG and discover more aspiring female drummers!!
