In the video’s caption, Bushell said she’s been “working on my speed and consistency,” so it makes sense that she chose Eminem’s rapid fire 2013 track. As always, the kid drummer handles the song with ease and confidence, twirling and throwing one drum stick while playing the other and never losing her footing on the kick drum. Elsewhere in her caption, she shouted out HAL, the drummer for the Japanese rock band CVLTE who has also enjoyed some Internet fame in recent years.
Beyond performing songs by Rush and John Coltrane, Bushell has moved beyond simple covers and has begun writing her first album of original music. Back in September, she shared the Origins of her debut single “The Shadows” and discussed her rise to fame. The precocious artist also joined the likes of Shane Hawkins and Violet Grohl in performing at Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins tribute concert in London.
Guess who’s back? My first new cover in almost 6 months! #rapgod by @eminem! Inspired by the awesome drummer @halcvlte - I am still working on my original songs. Coming soon! I can’t wait for you to hear them. Working on my speed and consistency. #eminem #vad506 @RolandGlobal pic.twitter.com/yh4PX84r9r
