Tripp Beam began playing drums at age 12.
Originally introduced to music by way of piano, Tripp's interests took a turn
after 5 years of studying to pursue the drumset. His high school years were
active in the jazz, marching, and concert bands on the east coast as well as
performing in groups outside of school anywhere he could.
Upon graduation from the Hayes School of
Music at Appalachian State University Tripp eventually settled in Los Angeles,
CA. Still in his 20's he's performed or recorded with Rose Falcon, Steve
Porcaro, Heather Porcaro, Linda Perry, Aimee Osbourne, and most recently Moby
to name a few. In 2012 Tripp was the drummer for the sold out Evening With Paul
Williams/Phantom of the Paradise event held in Los Angeles. Paul Williams is an
Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe winning Hall of Fame songwriter and the current
president and chairman of ASCAP.
Tripp joined the indie-pop duo Psychic
Friend. In 2013 the band signed to Dangerbird Records and released their debut
record "My Rocks Are Dreams" on February 12th. Tripp will be playing
shows with Moby in the fall of 2013 in support of his new album
