PROFILE
"I have been performing both live and in the studio since 1990 when I started playing for my church at the age of 11 years old. I moved from San Diego to Los Angeles in 2003 and began to pursue music and drums full time. After bouncing around many local Los Angeles bands and artists, I met Colbie Caillat's producer, Midal Blue at a recording session. He asked if i would play on a song called 'Battle' and I met Colbie a few weeks later. Not only did the track make the album and go multi-platinum but I recorded four more songs for her on 'Coco" and performed in her live band for two years before moving onto other projects. While performing with Colbie I toured the globe (Europe, South America, Asia and Australia) and the United States non-stop, acted as musical director, performed on a variety of late night and daytime TV shows, recorded on the famed 'Live From Abbey Road' set in Abbey Road Studios, shared the stage with john Mayer on a couple impromptu jam sessions, met a lot of my heros and ultimately fell in love with being a touring and recording musician. You can currently find me rocking out with none other than Orianthi, the Australian guitarist most widely known for her work on the never-to-be 'This Is It' tour by Michael Jackson, featured on the movie, 'This Is It". I will be performing with her and the rest of the band this summer on the Glam Nation tour supporting Adam Lambert."

Mikey B has also performed with Alex Band (formerly of The Calling), Colbie Caillat
