Sammi Potts is an amazingly talented drummer and singer whose energy lights up the room! Rarely have I met someone with a more vibrant and genuine spirit than Sammi. She would be an asset to anyone both musically and personally. A team player with great sensitivity and an unbelievably positive attitude, Sammi Potts is about to soar! You would be wise to collaborate with her before she fully takes flight.

There are not many female professional drummers in the music industry; Stillwater native Sammi Potts wants to change that.

“There are only a few of us,” Potts said. “I want to be able to say to girls younger than me, ‘You can do anything you want, you can try anything.’”

Now based in Nashville, Potts is about to take off as a professional drummer, with dreams of touring with an up-and-coming female singer. The dream started in her youth in the St. Croix Valley.

Sammi Potts of Nashville, TN, recently became an artist with Heartbeat Percussion.
