Commander of rhythm, goddess of groove and one of most individual performers of her time, Holly Madge is one drummer that’s hard to forget.
From setting up her first drum kit in a barn in Devon aged 10, to receiving a 1st class honours degree in Music at Southampton University, she has lived solely through her music.
Passionately honing her skills in big bands, jazz trios, Brazilian batterias and hip hop groups - anything that offered up a new challenge - she focused on becoming a quick learner, an exceptional listener and a drummer that focused on groove before all else.
Holly has become a player at the forefront of the popular music scene. From world tours with Hans Zimmer to summer Ibiza residencies with Idris Elba, international performances at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games with circus company Strut & Fret to recording the iconic percussion on Mission: Impossible- Fallout Holly’s career is rich and wide ranging.
She has firmly made her mark in her home country where she has been recording for the UK’s most prestigious exam board, the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and was invited by the British Council to perform in Kenya at the 2018 Nairobi Jazz Festival.
