Simone Odaranile is another talented BIMM alumna who has gone on to shape an exciting career in music.
Simone arrived to study at BIMM Brighton in 2008, graduating in 2011 with a Foundation Degree in Drums. Right now she is on the road drumming for one of the most exciting live acts around, The Go! Team.
Simone has been a drummer since age eleven so she’s a seasoned player already, even though she’s still young. She’s been playing with internationally famous Brighton band The Go! Team for about a year and the band are currently on a world tour promoting new album The Scene Between, with Simone providing the beats on every date.
We asked Simone how working with the band came about:
Amongst the multi-instrumentalist gang that is The Go! Team, Simone’s talents have managed to shine brightly. She was recently featured in Drummer magazine and has been written about twice in Tom Tom, the only magazine to focus solely on women drummers.
So, how is life on tour?
We’re looking forward to more tour tales when Simone gets home to Brighton!
