Episode 5: Nightpulse

Hailing from San Diego, she traded piano for drums at age 11 and hasn’t looked back since. She was the drummer, co-vocalist, and songwriter fro Bad Things, which toured with the likes of 30 Seconds to Mars and Phantogram, played Lollapalooza, and appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Since then, she’s launched her own solo artist career, releasing three singles and two music vidoes. Say hello to Nightpulse (aka Lena Zawaideh).
