Originally from Kansas City, MO., Kelsey Cook, also known as DrummerGirl – KC, has been drumming for 15 years. Though unlike many other talented musicians, KC didn’t grow up with music in her family history; music found her.
As a young girl, KC was always enthusiastic about music when her mother would take her to live country music concerts, with her eyes mainly focused on the drummer. Many years went by as KC discovered she had excellent, speedy hand eye coordination by competing in cup stacking competitions, and became the ‘Speed Stacking Champion of Missouri’ in the third grade and on! Two years later, with much consistency, she finally got to begin drum lessons and her family was pleasantly surprised.
KC has now accomplished and experienced a great amount in the music world. She has a Percussion Performance Degree from Washburn University and has attended Musicians Institute in L.A. She has taught privately, performs as a clinician and is a member of Base Academy of Music, a non-profit music organization based out of Kansas City, Missouri.
Friendly competition has also been something KC has been involved in, by participating in Nelly’s all female drumline auditions in 2007, Guitar Center’s Drum Offs, and being in the top three of the Hit Like A Girl 2013 competition as the U.S. winner and second runner up.
KC has been on the snare line of the (NFL) Kansas City Chiefs RUMBLE Drumline, performing for several thousands of people before and during the big games! She has also been a member of the ‘Sticks of Thunder’ Production and ‘Industrial Rhythm.’
Currently residing in Nashville, TN., Kelsey Cook considers herself to be an independent drummer, at the moment. She is always looking for more projects to grow as a musician and take her talents across the world!
