HAYLEY CRAMER started playing drums from a young age, mostly self-taught by learning on her brother’s drum kit. By the age of 15, Hayley started gigging during the weekends which would inevitably lead to an unstoppable career. She started making waves in 2003 with the formation of the all-female UK rock band, McQueen. Over the course of six years, the band’s 2 EP’s and 1 album catapulted Hayley into the rock scene and got the attention of Tom Zutaut. Zutaut, who
signed Mötley Crüe & Guns N' Roses, was essential to Cramer joining Pop Evil in 2016.
Joining POP EVIL was no small feat for Hayley. Unlike the UK rock scene, Hayley had to form relationships with all band and crew members from scratch. When first arriving in the US, Pop
Evil was mid-tour for their album, “Up”. Hayley played sound check for 2 weeks before taking over the role as drummer for Pop Evil. A British female drummer in an otherwise all-male American band required jumping over both gender and cultural barriers. Hayley says the
decision to make this huge change is, “one of the best things she has ever done in her life.”
