My name is Meytal. Pretty common Israeli name that also just happens to sound like my favorite style of music. Coincidence? I think not. Ive been lucky to have the amazing support of some cool ass people from all over the world who have helped me grow my online career, as well as fund my debut original band album ALCHEMY which charted #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart first week it was out, and my 2nd band album THE WITNESS.
Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceFunny enough it was being able to cover Ænema by Tool, it was one of the first Tool covers I’ve done and I was extremely worried I would not be able to comprehend the drum part.. during the process of learning it, I had an a-ha moment where it kinda all made sense and gave me the confidence to take on other complex songs and eventually compose my own music.
What Drives Your Creativity?The bands that inspired me to become a drummer, and the fans that have been there from the very start of my weird career path.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?Vic Firth has always been an industry leader in my eyes, other than the obvious advantage that the sticks feel and last longer than the rest, I feel there’s a spiritual aspect which goes beyond product quality.
