Lindsay Martin is an LA based drummer who goes beyond playing just the groove of a tune. She puts her innovative stamp on the music while delivering the feel that the each song needs.
Growing up on the family farm in Upstate NY, Lindsay began learning classical piano at age 6. At age 10, her Dad introduced her to the drums of Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham, and Lindsay’s journey began. Influenced by John Bonham’s bombastic style and Tommy Lee’s dramatic stage presence, Lindsay ties all this together in her performances. As a teenager, Lindsay made a name for herself by entering a Guitar Center Drum Off competition at 16 and ‘wowed the crowd’, scoring highest honors in multiple NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association) competitions, and was touring Europe at 17 with American Music Abroad. In her high school marching band, Lindsay played a mix of snare and tenor drums as well. She was gigging throughout Albany, NY in their bar scene with local bands, and by senior year she was accepted into USC’s Popular Music Program. After graduating high school, she packed her bags and moved to LA in 2012.
Currently, Lindsay is Drumming for Juliet Simms, Street Drum Corps and is available for work in Los Angeles.
