The electronic dance music culture is known for its high energy, beat pumping, epic productions from some of the greatest producers from around the globe. Now there’s a new girl on the scene named Glorious who is injecting her full drum set and powerhouse vocals into the electronic dance music concert experience through a newly launched live show for nightclubs and dance music festivals. 

Glorious, a livetronica drummer, Pop/R&B singer and producer, has been making music since she started playing drums at the age of three. She is humble, sophisticated and incredibly focused on who she wants to be as an artist. “I love playing the drums and singing and I've been a fan listening and dancing to electronic dance music since I was about 12 years old,” said Glorious. 

When she was growing up playing the drums she performed with various jazz bands and youth groups. After the shows, she would always have people come up to her saying how good she was (although she knew there were parts where she messed up). 

She was always compared as the "girl drummer" and "female drummer." But this was never good enough for Glorious, because she wanted to be known primarily by her musical talents as an artist. Her mother constantly instilled in her that it is not about being a cute drummer, or the girl drummer. But you want people to know you as a great drummer "period" and an incredible artist. 

Because of this, Glorious is constantly pushing herself to grow and develop as a musician an artist. During her performances she pulls from her jazz background and a variety of styles to create her own sound that gets audiences moving, engaged and inspired. She is glamorous yet edgy, classy yet full of grit. Glorious' throw down factor makes her sound and performance one to remember. “I use to be a jazz drummer growing up, so improv is my deal. My live drum set remixes are my version of improv for electronic dance music. It feels good because the audience is so pumped because I'm singing but what people don't expect is for me to kill it on the drums and they especially don't expect me to sing and play a full drum set at the same time," says Glorious.

Her unique strengths of livetronica drumming and soulful vocals produce music that connects the electronic dance music culture and contemporary Pop/R&B in a new way. She has learned to use her life experiences—the good and the challenging—and channel them into her music. The result: a sound universal in meaning and unique in personal inspiration.

Glorious, who is also an Electronic Production and Design major at the world renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, was pleased to debut her live show at the world famous underground nightclub Sullivan Room in New York City. "At Sullivan Room we are known for providing the best in underground house and techno music in New York City...Glorious playing a full drum kit with our resident DJ wasn't something we had done before and I was curious how it would work but her energy and talent captivated the crowd and our dance floor," says Sergei Sklyarenko, aka SR Serge, owner of Sullivan Room.

Visual stimulation has always been an important element along with the sound production at events. As more event producers and venues raise the bar with lighting and backdrops- nightclub managers, promoters and talent buyers are always looking for what or who they can add to heighten every aspect of the experience. Big name dance music DJs and producers want to make each show different and powerful to keep their fans engaged every time they attend their show and hear their music. Glorious is a performer that delivers that unique blend of visual stimulation and sound with her ability to create drum set remixes to a variety of electronic dance music styles like house, progressive house, trance, techno, and electronica and cover vocals on favorite dance tracks and remixes of contemporary music.
