Heather Thomas -
Heather Thomas got her start in the Seattle scene as the kind of drummer who can learn an entire set in one day, play the show like she’s been in the band for years, and sit in with the next band ripping a killer funk tune with pocket or tastefully giving a singer-songwriter a settled-in groove. After touring the country with two-time Grammy-nominated Mary Lambert (of Macklemore Same Love fame) opening for artists like Gavin DeGraw, Train, Pharrell, Ariana Grande and performing live on Good Morning America, LIVE with Kelly and Michael, and VH1 You Oughta Know, she took to songwriting with a passion and intensity that soon churned out heartfelt folk tunes and complex rock numbers with the ability to stick in your head for days. She is prolific as a studio musician and session drummer, playing on dozens of albums and in close to one hundred bands over her 7-year stay in Seattle. She’s earned quite a reputation for herself within the city, but now she’s looking to take that spirit of make-art-no-matter-what across the country in an ambitions move for 2020. She spent the first few months of the year exploring the music scenes in Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, Austin, Albuquerque, Denver, Nashville, and plans to spend the rest of the year working on material for her next album in Chicago, New York, and Philadelphia. Heather offers video drum lessons for $75/hour.
