PRESS

Anika 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.
