Hey Drums is a collective of female and gender minority drummers and percussionists engaged in community activities around Australia including a blog, print media, live performance and teaching events. The initiative was created in 2016 by Nat Grant, an independent drummer, percussionist, and composer from Melbourne.
Nat is passionate about subverting stereotypes around the instrument by sharing as many diverse stories as possible and creating a strong network of interesting, experienced, and awesome drummers. Check out more of their interviews with local and international artists here.
Drumming Queen Julia Watt is rarely seen without sticks in her hands. Since the early 2000’s she has been touring nationally and internationally and wouldn’t want to spend her time doing anything else.
Outside of live shows, Julia has extensive experience recording and teaching. She is known as a warm, encouraging and passionate teacher. She regularly volunteers at Girls Rock! Melbourne, an incredible program amplifying the voices of female, trans and gender diverse youth through music education and positive mentorship, and she also runs a small music school from her home studio
