Born in Los Angeles, Paloma grew up surrounded by prolific entertainers. She discovered a passion and natural talent for music, playing trombone in jazz and classical genres as a young girl. A chance encounter at age thirteen landed Paloma on stage behind a drum kit, with an audience and a full band. Though she’d never played a lick, she grabbed those sticks and has been wailing ever since.
An award winning graduate of The Musician’s Institute in Hollywood, the
technically superb Estevez is now a respected session musician, performer and composer in her own right. She’s toured across the globe, opening for acts like Salt n Pepa, Drowning Pool, and Buckcherry, and has shared the stage as a guest performer with El Chicano, and Slash.
Over her 20 year career, Paloma has been tapped by such greats as
Grammy Award-winning American music engineer, mixer and producer Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, The Rolling Stones), Emmy Award winner Bill Jackson, music producer and composer, Tyler Bates, (300, Watchmen,Guardians of the Galaxy) and American multi- platinum award winning Record Producer Dito Godwin (No Doubt, Kiss, Motley Crue). She has also shared sessions with such greats as Jonathan Moffet “Sugar Foot” (Michael Jackson) and Corney Mims (2Pac, Beyonce).
Paloma proudly endorses Los Cabos Drumsticks and Sabian Cymbals. She’s been featured on MTV, HULU, National Geographic, ESPN, Access Hollywood, and TLC. Though she’s regularly lauded as a rock drummer, her teen obsession with NSYNC and Backstreet Boys, allows her to slide into a pop groove effortlessly.
