Anika Nilles is a German drummer, songwriter and producer. She wrote, recorded and released her first EP titled ‘Alter Ego’ in 2014. Stylistically her songs are a mix of pop/rock/fusion whereas the most important aspect for Anika is the groove. She doesn’t only use the drums for playing a beat or keeping time, but much more as an independent instrument. She avoids putting the artistic focus on herself and leaves room for extravagance. With her newly formed band ‘Nevell’ she will present her songs live on stage soon. Her fine technique, the distinctiveness of her sound and her strong groove characterize her songs and her way of playing. Recent activities also include working as an author for international drum magazines and producing her debut album.

Meinl in Canada is a pretty big deal to us. We are huge fans of the company not only because they make quality cymbals but because they are drummers first, in fact they often say “by drummers for drummers”. This is the same way we feel here at www.canadiandrumgear.com. If I can quote their website “… NOT LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE”
