Anika built a name for herself during the YouTube boom of 2013. Her concepts for grooves and interesting compositional ideas brought her to the forefront of many drummers! Anika performed as part of our “Drummers Only Day Out” event in 2018, a performance that many of our customers regard as their favourite performance from a drummer of all time!
If you frequent around any drumming social media, chances are you’ve seen a video or two of Sarah Thawer. Her enthusiastic energy and incredible rhythmic flow grabbed the attention of many brands and industry pros alike.
