Nandi Lily Bushell (/ˈnænd ˈbʊʃəl/; born 28 April 2010)[2] is a South African-born British musician, singer, songwriter, and social media personality. She became known for her drumming skill by posting cover versions of popular rock songs to her YouTube and Instagram accounts, and her online drum battle with Dave Grohl received international coverage in 2020. By age ten, Bushell's videos had earned the attention of musicians including Grohl, Lenny Kravitz, Anderson .Paak, and Questlove, and led to numerous television appearances.

Bushell was the youngest artist featured on the cover of Modern Drummer magazine and is the first-ever musician-in-residence at Cartoon Network. She has performed with Kravitz and in concert with Grohl's band Foo Fighters, and was a featured guest at the Platinum Jubilee of Elizabeth II in London.

Bushell has been writing and recording her own music since age ten. Three of those songs, in which she performs all parts, were offered as singles ahead of her first EP, Into the Abyss, set for 2023. Its first single, "The Shadows", was released in September 2022.

Early life

Bushell was born in Durban, South Africa; her mother Lungile is from KwaZulu-Natal, whilst her father John is British.[3][4] Her family moved from Durban to Ipswich, United Kingdom, when she was age two.[5] Bushell describes herself as "British and Zulu".[6]

I was better than my dad in, like, two weeks.

—Nandi Bushell

I was extremely happy that Nandi was so good. But, at the same time, I was feeling quite inferior ... to a five-year-old.

—John Bushell
Variety, 4 February 2021[3]

Her parents are not musicians, though her father played in bands during his university years. When John showed his children a video for The Beatles' "Hey Jude", Bushell was fascinated by Ringo Starr's performance and showed an interest in playing the drums. Her parents soon bought her first drum kit as a reward for good grades at school; whilst accompanying her father on guitar, he saw that his five-year-old daughter had strong skills at keeping a beat.[3][4][7] At age six, Bushell began taking lessons with a local drum teacher;[8] her first week was "really hard, but then I just got it."[9] With her dad's help, Bushell began posting covers of various songs,[10] including a music video he created with an alien theme as seven-year-old Nandi drummed along to "Toxicity" by System of a Down.[11] She also attended jam sessions at a local pub, where she played with adult musicians as part of the Ipswich Rock Project.[11][12]

Viral videos; Dave Grohl drum battle (2018–2021)

I didn't just concede because she's a 10-year-old girl. I conceded because she kicked my fucking ass! I wasn't being a nice guy—fuck no! She beat me fair and square.

Dave Grohl
NME, 5 February 2021[13]

Bushell's videos on social media were spotted by established musicians, many of whom offered gifts. After Questlove saw one of her Instagram videos, he sent her a custom child-sized drum kit.[3] Her cover of "Use Me" soon caught the attention of Anderson .Paak, and Lenny Kravitz invited Bushell to meet and accompany him during a sound check at The O2 Arena whilst on tour in June 2019.[6][12] Kravitz and drummer Nate Smith later sent Bushell a custom drum kit.[14] In July 2019, she was invited to meet with Questlove at the On Blackheath festival at Blackheath.[15] After her cover of "Plug In Baby" was seen by Muse's Matt Bellamy, he gifted her one of his signature guitars.[16]

Her drum cover of Nirvana's "In Bloom" went viral in November 2019, gaining over 10 million views via Twitter within a week.[17] Dave Grohl, the drummer on Nevermind, learned of the video from album producer Butch Vig, and was amazed by her "joy and energy".[7] In August 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Bushell uploaded a cover of "Everlong" by Foo Fighters, another of Grohl's bands, and challenged him to a drum-off, calling him her favourite drummer.[7] Grohl thought it was "adorable", but his friends kept texting him, "dude, you need to step up and respond to this. You have to represent."[18] Grohl responded by drumming along with "Dead End Friends" by his supergroup Them Crooked Vultures to return the challenge to Bushell. After she posted a video drumming to the same song, Grohl conceded defeat.[13] He subsequently performed an original song inspired by Bushell; she responded by writing and recording a song dedicated to Grohl.[7] The remote drum battle received international coverage,[19] drew millions of views, and bolstered Bushell's presence on social media: within six months, she had over 800,000 followers on Instagram and 250,000 followers on YouTube.[3]

Grohl cited their drum-off as the reason he chose November 2020 to release Medicine at Midnight, which Foo Fighters had been holding back during the pandemic. "I hope our record can make people feel the same [joy] as my drum battle with Nandi."[20]

Foo Fighters concert

During a video chat with Bushell in November 2020, Grohl invited her to perform with him and Foo Fighters on stage once they were able to tour again.[21] They met in person for the first time on 26 August 2021 at The Forum in California, where Grohl introduced his "arch nemesis" on drums to perform "Everlong" and close the sold-out show. In her review for Variety, Jessica Shalvoy wrote that Bushell was "absolutely shredding ... [she] sounded like she'd been touring with Foos for the past 26 years", despite having met in person that same night.[22] Kelli Skye Fadroski of The Orange County Register called it "epic";[23] Billboard's Gil Kaufman wrote, "the band's ecstatic preteen protégé flawlessly played them home like a pro."[24]

Bushell's viral appearance led to the return in September of "Everlong" to the music charts. The 1997 song also made Billboard's Hot Hard Rock Songs (#2), Hot Rock & Alternative Songs (#11), and Hot Alternative Songs (#17) lists, none of which existed when it was released.[25]

Musicianship and early releases (2021–present)

Bushell and Roman Morello wrote and performed the song "The Children Will Rise Up" in October 2021 to warn of the dangers of climate change. The music video features Roman's father Tom Morello, along with Jack Black and Greta Thunberg.[26]

Bushell's live appearances in 2022 included the Platinum Jubilee of Elizabeth II in June, where she participated in both the Platinum Party at the Palace and the Platinum Jubilee Pageant.[27] In September, Bushell was one of dozens of artists invited to join Foo Fighters on stage for the Taylor Hawkins tribute concert at Wembley Stadium, where she performed "Learn to Fly" using drumsticks given to her by Hawkins the year before.[28] Dave Grohl introduced her as "our friend, the coolest fucking drummer in the world" and added, "she's the biggest rock star on the bill. I know we got Queen and Rush and all that shit, but we got Nandi tonight."[29] Bushell called it both epic and bittersweet to play Wembley "under very sad circumstances".[30]

In addition to drums, Bushell plays lead and bass guitar and piano; her videos include covers of rock songs in which she performs all parts using both video synchronization and a loop station.[10][31] She also plays saxophone, including for her covers of songs by Bill Withers and John Coltrane.[16][32]

Bushell has written and recorded an EP, Into the Abyss, and performs all parts; its first single, "The Shadows", was released on 30 September 2022. The song is "quite dark", and Bushell said she wrote it to help her father and others going through depression.[33] Gen Handley of Spin magazine called the song "incredibly moving and mature";[34] Matt Owen of Guitar World wrote that whilst her musical inspirations are present in the "haunting, riff-heavy" song, "it also introduces us to a nuanced Nandi flair, one that showcases her approach to melody and arrangement."[35]

Climate change

Climate change

In common usage, climate change describes global warming—the ongoing increase in global average temperature—and its effects on Earth's climate system. Climate change in a broader sense also includes previous long-term changes to Earth's climate. The current rise in global average temperature is more rapid than previous changes, and is primarily caused by humans burning fossil fuels. Fossil fuel use, deforestation, and some agricultural and industrial practices increase greenhouse gases, notably carbon dioxide and methane. Greenhouse gases absorb some of the heat that the Earth radiates after it warms from sunlight. Larger amounts of these gases trap more heat in Earth's lower atmosphere, causing global warming.
