Nicola is a session drummer who is searching for new artists and music projects to work with. While experienced and currently working across many genres, Nicola specializes in Rock, Punk and Jazz.
She was born in Hartlepool, a small town in the North East of England. She learned to play drums when she was just 12 years old. Nicola played her first gigs in her local town band and her school orchestra where she played her natural style of music, jazz and swing. After playing for a few years she decided to take a break from playing music and focused her energy to part take in as much sport as she could handle.
She was brought up in a big family and lived with her parents until she was 23, then she fled to her closest city, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. It is there where she met her soulmate Katie, who encouraged her to get back into her passion of drumming. Katie bought Nicola her first electronic drum kit as a Christmas gift in 2011 and this re-ignited her creative side. Ever since she found her self playing in many bands with various styles and genres of music. Her first acoustic drum kit was a Pearl export which got her through many of her early live performances and annoyed her fellow housemates with the noise! She also collected a djembe and the cajon which she played in several local gigs. Nicola has played with many bands and she is ready to take her passion to the next level.
Playing drums is more than a way to earn a living to Nicola. It’s her passion. She practices every day of the week, she's always trying to improve and learn something new.
