[ICYMI] – Drumroll please on the Kaya Central #Awesome4some
It’s remarkable that there are only a handful of drummers who have served double duty as lead singers. The phenomenon is so uncommon, in fact, that whenever it does happen, the sight almost smacks of novelty. On the Kaya Central #Awesome4some this afternoon we feature 4 drummers who also double as lead singers.
Anderson Paak – The invigorating, genre-busting band-leader, drummer, singer and rapper revived the sounds of boo-bap hip-hop with his surfing inspired album “Malibu”.
Chris Ulrich – Tortured Soul’s singer/song-writer and drummer famously penned Mzansi’s fave “Enjoy it Now”.
Pharrell Williams – The lead vocalist and drummer of the rock/funk/hip hop band NERD, that he formed with Hugo and childhood friend Shay Haley.
Sheila-E – World class drummer, percussionist, singer, song-writer and driven by her inner steadfast rhythm, Sheila-E went on to become not just one of the best female drummers but one of THE best drummers of all time.
