Playing to sold-out arenas and global audiences, Cherisse Osei continues to work with legends as well as up-and-coming artists including Simple Minds, Bryan Ferry, Paloma Faith and MIKA. She has played the world’s top music festivals from Coachella and Glastonbury to the Isle of Wight, South by Southwest, Fuji Rock, Exit and Roskilde. Her visual flamboyance and rock solid technique make her one of the most sought after drummers in the UK.
Cherisse was given her first drums at the age of five – a pink Mickey Mouse kit from her uncle – and has been playing ever since. By 12 she was performing in bands and as a result exposed to many genres of music. Her fascination with drumming styles only continues to grow.
