On this week's episode of the SoundDiego Podcast, Elise Trouw joins in the fun. A native San Diegan, she found herself with an immense online fan base from an early age, thanks in no small part to drumming videos she posted to YouTube and Instagram. Recently, through the power of unique cover-song mashups (Radiohead/the Police, Foo Fighters/Bobby Caldwell, etc.), her own music, and amazing performances where she plays every instrument of a song via live looping, she's becoming a household name.
