Beau B. is best known for his work as full-time drummer for the metal group WITHERED. Throughout the years, he has carved out a place for himself among extreme metal drumming’s heaviest hitters. Recognized for his aggressive playing style and unique approach to crafting memorable drum parts, he continues to push boundaries and challenge himself behind the drum kit. As of late 2017, Beau has taken his career to the next level and is now available for studio/session work, as well as drum lessons in the metro Atlanta area.
Surrounded by music at an early age, Beau received his first drum set at the age of 12. By the age of 15, he was playing with bands and experimenting with double bass and extreme drumming styles. Being a lefty in a right-handed world proved to be a challenge but he persevered and took lead snare honors in the Franklin High School drum line.
2000-2003: Inactive from bands. Worked on perfecting his double bass work and hand speed. Toured Europe and South Africa with ska/reggae group Regatta 69 as a session drummer from Oct 2002-June 2003.
2004: Moved to Atlanta and started playing shows with extreme metal act waited.
2007: Joined WITHERED as full-time drummer.
