She Drummed With Prince, And She’s Still Slaying

Hannah Welton  /  UPDATED Aug 19, 2022

Hannah Welton, known mostly for her time in Prince’s backing band 3RDEYEGIRL, is so high energy and full of personality in this drum video you’re going to be scraping your jaw off the floor. There’s no way you won’t want to jump on a kit and lay down some grooves after this.

The bold song you’re hearing is an original track called “Women’s Intuition” that Hannah wrote, arranged, and produced with her husband (Prince producer Joshua Welton) for the band Counterculture.

Looking for a full breakdown on the drum part so you can learn to play it too? Become a Drumeo member (or at least check out the free 7-day trial) to get access to Hannah’s drum writing course, plus so much other content you’ll wonder where the time went.

Hannah Welton was the drummer for Prince from 2012 to 2015 as a member of his backing band, 3RDEYEGIRL, and she also performed live on Prince’s Live Out Loud and Hit And Run tours. You can hear her drumming and vocals on the 2014 album Plectrumelectrum. Already a touring drummer and clinician from a young age, Hannah got her big break when Prince discovered her on YouTube.
