Drumming has always been “in the blood” for Belinda. Inspired by her Father and Grandfather, it was inevitable that she would soon follow suit.
After only one year of playing, Belinda was shortlisted for “Young drummer of the year” in 2003. This inspired Belinda to pursue music and drumming as a career. She later studied with some of the most renowned UK tutors at the London based school of contemporary music, Drumtech.
After gaining industry experience in the fields of teaching and function groups; Belinda went back into education to study at the Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM), where she received a Cert HE (distinction) and a BMus (Hons – 1st division) in Professional Music Performance.
Since finishing at the ACM in 2012, Belinda has worked with the following artists: British singer/songwriter Emma Stevens (various UK tours); Buckinghamshire based singer-songwriter Katie Buckhaven, American rap artist, Watsky and Nashville based singer/songwriter, Jenn Bostic (2 UK Headline Tours and album release show for "Faithful"). Belinda has recently been playing shows with Sam Duckworth (Get Cape. Wear Cape.Fly), this has included various shows in the South including Glastonbury festival and Village Green festival.
