Peters, Lori (Drummer)

Drummer Lori Peters has been playing drums for 17 years. She is modest, but practical about her skills.

“I wreck a lot of cymbals: but we’re playing rock here, you know? There’s a stigma about being a girl in a rock band, as well as being a female and a drummer. I started out hitting hard.”

Lori Peters is currently the drummer of Skillet, starting shortly after the release of Invincible (2000). She was born on November 29, 1973 in Kenosha, WI. In high school, she was involved the Jazz Band and Symphonic Band, and she continued her education for 3 years at Columbia College, Chicago. Before joining Skillet, she worked for a benefits consulting firm and was also in band named Alkeme with Korey Cooper.

Her gear is as follows:

  • Slingerland Drums
  • Zildjian Cymbals
  • Vic Firth Sticks
  • Roland Octapad
  • LP Spike
  • Roland Drum Triggers
