“Press quotes & testimonials”
‘Eevie is a fantastic drummer, her flair coupled with serious professionalism. She smashed it out the park in a series of livestreams for one of my clients this summer – on very short notice – and has slotted into the artist’s dynamic perfectly. Would highly recommend’

Eevie blew all of us away with her laid back, but powerful drumming style. Always keeping in the groove with creative fills and rhythm changes. Clearly someone in tune with the craft of how to create a dynamic drum sound. On stage she looks like nothing can phase her.
Across all of the shows we put on Eevie was professional about the equipment set-up, during soundchecks and after the show.

I have been recording drummers for the past 17 years, from beginners through to world-class players and session pro’s. I am 100% confident when I state that Eevie’s playing is solid as a rock, super consistent, creative, plus her timing and feel when playing to a click remains flawless.

WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I play the collision 5B drumsticks and I love how comfortable and versatile they are. I play a number of genres for my work as a session drummer so I need a drumstick that is a good all-rounder and the collision 5B is exactly that. I love collision purely for their passion of delivering not only the best for their customers but for their artists as well. I like that they put their artists in the spotlight and promote them and give them a chance to be heard. I’m excited and proud to be working with the Collision family!
