IMG_0472.jpg

Anna Mylee Anna Mylee was born in Belgium in 1991 and developped a love for music very early on which she heritated from her musician father and meloman mother. At the age of 11, she started playing drums and quickly joined a few local bands. She then started performing nationally at the young age of 15 with her original bands and also some jazz and blues sessions.

In 2008, Anna got on the fast track to broaden her abilities by studying intensively with renown drum instructor Davide Zecca. She also impressed her local music Academy by passing a three-year music theory class in only nine months. It's only two years later, when Anna turned 18, that she got accepted at Tech Music School and she left her native Belgium to relocate in London.

During those years of studies, she performed with many artists such as: Ozonna, Shambala, D-Nova, The Future Shape Of Sound,.. to name a few. After graduating from Tech Music School (BMus Degree in popular Music Performance), she continued to expand her skillset by studying with master drummers like Aaron Spears (Usher) and Ash Soan (Adele).

In 2013, she joined the famous British female rock band The Sex Pissed Dolls, which traveled and toured all over the country on big stages in front of ever-growing audience for 2 full years. In August 2015, Anna boldly made the temporary move to Los Angeles to study with Mark Schulman (P!nk), Kenny Aronoff (Paul McCartney, John Mellencamp), and master drum instructor Bruce Becker as well as recording an album for Aven Caine in association with Mark Schulman (P!nk, Billy Idol, Foreigner), Julian Coryell (Alanis Morissette, Leonard Cohen) and Erich Gobel (Black Sabbath).

Anna has moved back to London in June 2017 and has been mainly busy with live and studio sessioning as well as running her own band DORJA. Since 2016, they have played three UK tours and one European tour. Those women of hard rock are due to release their debut album in 2019.
