      Janna Graham is an up and coming percussionist/drummer  based in NYC. She grew up in a family of musicians and artists, and has been performing music since she was six years old. 

         

      Janna studied jazz drum set and vibraphone at Kennesaw State University, where she graduated with a degree in Jazz Performance. While keeping a busy schedule as a musician and teacher in Atlanta, she got the opportunity to play drum set for the pre-Broadway production of The Prom at Alliance Theater. Through the connections she made during that show, she was invited to relocate to NYC to play drum set and percussion for the 50th anniversary off-Broadway revival of Sweet Charity starring Sutton Foster.
