A while back, I did some short interviews with local girl drummers whom I admire. I’ve been sitting on these thinking I’m going to do something huge with them, but I’ve come around to thinking I should just post them! So, you’ll be seeing these pop up when these hot ladies have gigs coming up.
Theresa, like me, started playing drums as a necessity to playing in a band with her partner-in-crime. I asked her about her influences and experience:
Theresa: “I started playing the drums about 5 years ago, when Al Polk wanted to start a new band and asked me to be the drummer. I grew up playing alto saxophone, but I think I always had drumming in my blood. I like to make interesting beats, typically with space and syncopation, and I’m inspired a lot by Caribbean rhythms. My only drumming project has been Streight Angular, although I’ve sat in for other bands, including a hip hop project. Streight Angular draws from all different genres to create fun, danceable music with a message.”
Strieght Angular has just released a new video, check it out:
