Out of a small village in Germany, rises one of the greatest drummers in the world of music, eighteen year old Sina She has gained the attention of music lovers around the globe. Sina “is” the heartbeat of music. When performing solo or collaborating with others, she is the heart, spine and breath of the music. The drummer is the person who brings the personality to the music. Sina has a great sense for rhythm, and groove. Her own individuality can be heard and seen in all performances. The thrill and love of it all is seen in her face. One day she will be found on the cover of Rolling Stones where she belongs.
Sina started bring the beat to music when she was ten years old. The drums are an instrument in which she doesn’t have to worry about notes or chords, which she likes. She does play other instruments like piano and bass, but it is the drums she gravitates to and has become famous for.
As her musical abilities began to grow, she didn’t have many opportunities for performing. Sina, living in a small village and underage left little chance of her playing anywhere other than in a school Big Band. So at the age of fourteen, she started doing videos. Her YouTube channel has, exploded!
Since Sina started posting videos online, here in just four years, she has become an internet sensation known by many, but she seems unaware. “That seems slightly strange to me and don’t quite understand why these people are interested in me” Sina says. People love Sina because of the passion and the feeling you get when listening to her play. It is the fascination of her performances from each stroke of the drumstick, to the presentation in itself, her showmanship. This all draws people to her.
Her dad has been a musician for many years. He has worked for a distributor in Germany for Gibson Guitars. In the 90’s he started touring with a professional Beatles Tribute show. By the time Sina was eight, he had stopped touring and started recording. Her dad’s niche was, teach German kids English with music. He was also involved with creating the biggest collection of English Nursery Rhymes available in the world. With the credentials her father has, it is easy to see where her greatness stems from. He is a big influence with her music. “He encourages me to go for new challenges everyday” Sina says.
Sina is a session player, and is involved with many projects for her dad and other artists around the world. She has done many collaborations with people from all corners of the planet. “Collaborations are my way of compensating for the lack of fellow musicians in my village” Sina says. Sina’s dad does the editing and recording for her, but she says one day she might give it a try herself.
There are many videos of her collaborations with various artists and loves working with them all. She does say it is a lot of fun to work with other young musicians and artists. Here in the past few months Sina has worked with Emma Marie, Lucy Gowen, Lauren Isenberg, Avonlea and Jadyn Rylee just to name a few. Together they have made some amazing videos that thousands of people have enjoyed. Every one of these performances are of the highest quality, keeping music lovers coming back day after day.
Mixed in with her cover songs is an absolute brilliant original called, Doing The Wrong Thing The Right Way. This song was written by her dad as part of the Chi Might project (Chi Might is her first album). When they started recording the album they were looking for singers on YouTube when they saw, Lauren Isenberg. Sina and her dad knew the song was just right for Lauren. It was a perfect fit. The entire production is brilliant, the instrumental, the vocals, all of it.
Her album, Chi Might consists of fifteen original songs. They did a call out for musicians, songwriters and singers, with a great response. Quite a few of the people who contacted them became part of the album. Kara Glazer, who had written an amazing song that she performed herself called, Fate. And Shontrash, a band from Bangladesh. Of course her dad contributed songs as well, but they kept looking for songwriters. They found Avonlea, who contributed a song called, Kylie Jenner. She sent the piano part and vocals, then Sina and her dad added drums, bass, and guitar that same day. The finished product is first rate and should be on every radio. It has a wonderful jazzy sway to it, catchy, great flow, just a fun song.
Sina is constantly working on original songs, but she does not write any songs herself, she does however create the drum parts. They have already been thinking of making a new album, but they do need to find the right musicians. With Sina’s popularity that should not be much of a problem.
None of these projects would have been as exciting without drums. Drums are the heart of an instrumental/song. It is people like Sina who creates that heartbeat, that gives it life. A great drummer can make your heart pound, make you wonder, feel intensity or get up and dance. This is what Sina does, adds meaning to music. Throughout the years drummers have become legends through their creativity, people like Ringo Starr, Kenny Aronoff, Alex Van Halen and others the list goes on. Sina is putting her spin on music, and the world is listening, and they love it. Her name will be alongside all of these legends very soon.
