Austin Beede

Austin plays drums on the song Anything on the Gratitude album, and joins the band for live performances.

Son of an Abalone farmer and a poet, Austin grew up in a creative household filled with a love for music.  His cousin introduced him to the drums at age nine, and he’s been playing ever since.  Growing up locally, Austin has been playing around town since his teenage years and can still be found playing out and about on a weekly basis.  His musical adventures have included recording and touring with Alberta Cross, Alastair Greene, and The Coral Sea, among others.  Austin’s own songs can be found under the name Dr. Testme, his ongoing personal musical project.
