Drum For The Song Podcast
Anika Nilles (Jeff Beck / Nevell) #42
Thanks for checking out episode 42 of Drum For The Song podcast featuring the insanely talented Anika Nilles who has taken the drum community by storm over the past decade after being 'discovered' on YouTube, within a few years being the cover artist for Modern Drummer Magazine and most recently touring as the drummer for none other than the guitar legend himself, Jeff Beck!
In this episode, Anika and I have a great chat about her history with the drums and how she was encouraged to play by her parents at 6 years old and how she got the recent gig with Jeff Beck and what it was like touring with him and Johnny Depp across the UK and Europe and how she had to play most of the tour with an injured right foot which led to her having to learn the set by using just her left foot for the bass drum. She also has some great advice for drummers who would like to get more comfortable with odd time signatures and reveals some of her favourite musicians and inspirations.
