”I did Young Drummer of the Year when I was 16 [she was a finalist in 2006] and I had way more finesse back then because I was learning independence, I was just learning a lot more. And now I’m in a rock band and it’s just kind of simple, and in some ways, I think, ‘Have I actually got worse?’ But I know that in my performance I’m a million times better and I know I have a stage presence now that I would never have had without this experience and without this opportunity. Don’t test me on my rudiments and my double strokes because I haven’t had to do them in a long time! It’s pretty much four on the floor and I’m good!”
