Lena Zawaideh – Age, Wiki & Facts About The Drummer

As a creative performer and a musician who has been at the craft since the age of 11, there is no doubt that Lena Zawaideh would have preferred to earn mainstream popularity through her work as a drummer for Bad Things but unfortunately, that was not meant to be as that role was deferred to sexual harassment allegations by her against Shaun White, the founder of the band and a renowned snowboarder.

Lena Zawaideh’s Biography & Age

For a long time as a child, Lena Zawaideh believed she would become a doctor but sometimes, the universe has other plans. Born on the 18th of May, 1989 to parents whose identities are unknown in Carlsbad, San Diego, Lena Zawaideh’s path got diverted from her dreams of being a medical doctor as early as the age of 11 when she fell in love with the drum set.

Growing up, Lena Zawaideh was a ballet dancer who excelled academically and had a set path to attend Harvard Medical School, but that was all before she played the drum set at the age of 11 and subsequently quit ballet, choosing instead in focusing on mastering the instrument.

Supported by her brother, the only known sibling of the drummer, Lena Zawaideh began to play in several bands, including a heavy metal band that was established by her brother and herself but none of them was her big break until 2011, when she joined Bad Things, a band that consisted of herself, Shaun White and Anthony Sanudo.

While she was with the band, the band released an album, Bad Things in 2014, which was well received and resulted in a number of accomplishments, including performing at music festivals like the Lollapalooza and going on a couple of high-profile tours.

Following her exit from Bad Things, which was a messy exit, to say the least, she moved on to form her own band, NightPulse. Through the band, Lena Zawaideh has released a single, Delirious, which has performed quite well with music fans.
