#70: Lindsay Artkop – When preparation meets opportunity


Welcome back to another episode of the Drummers I Like Podcast! This week we are chatting with up and coming drummer Lindsay Artkop. Lindsay is truly one of a kind with a cutthroat approach to her career and a real understanding of what she wants and where she wants to go. This chat was inspiring, uplifting, fun, and truly one that stands on its own. We hope you enjoy.

About our guest:

We here at Drummers I Like have started to coin a term for our clan of motivated and passionate drummers. “Drumtrepreneur” is the simple idea that as a drummer, you are also an entrepreneur. This holds true in many lights from the self-motivation that must be ignited to obtain the fire to the constant grind and work effort that needs to be applied. Lindsay is the definition of this ideology coming from a strong background of multiple education degrees from multiple schools lined with an equally impressive backlog of studio sessions, live gigs, and paid sponsorships that put her in the top category of Drumtrepreneur.

Key Points from today’s episode:

  • Lindsay breaks down the early days and her journey through school and her move to Los Angeles.
  • Lindsay talks about her pivotal experience hanging out and getting tips from the master Juan Carlito Mendoza.
  • As we round out the show Lindsay breaks down her success in social media and much work it has been growing her social media channels.
  • Lindsay breaks down her influences as well her current drum kit setup.

Lindsay is a one of a kind drummer and chatting with her today was an eye opener to how much work it really takes to level up in the competitive city of Los Angeles. Her Attitude and drive really inspire me and while most people tend to take shortcuts to ensure time behind the kit (perfectly fine) Lindsay spends time honing every aspect of her approach to playing which includes schooling. We can’t wait to see where things go for Lindsay and wish her the best of luck!

That’s it for this episode of the Drummers I Like Podcast, tune in next week!
