About Dirty Honey
Born into a family of musicians and disciplined in a variety of musical styles, Jaydon Bean brings versatility, finesse, and charisma to any stage or studio. He had an early start in music, singing and dancing with his siblings since he was three years old. After he got his first drum set at nine years old, he quickly developed a passion and talent that would earn him numerous top awards and achievements. He studied music all through jr. high, high school, and college and was a member of High School “All State” and intercollegiate “All Star” Jazz bands. Shortly after graduating from college, Jaydon packed up his drums and moved to Los Angeles from his hometown of North Salt Lake, Utah and began working into the scene as a session musician. He has toured the United States, Canada, and Europe, recording and performing with various acts including, Redlight King, Bones, Josh Smith, Ellis Hall, Jason Freese, David Archuleta, Emily Osment, Markam, David Osmond, Karmina, Kevin Miso, Street Beat, David Pack, Terry Ellis, and now, full-fledged member of Dirty Honey.
When original drummer Corey Coverstone left the line-up, guitarist John Notto and bassist Justin Smolian reached out to Jaydon, who had been a long-time friend of theirs, to invite him to join the band. Jaydon came on board in January 2023, and immediately experienced “baptism by fire,” joining DH on their 2023 UK/European headline tours (Jan-March, June-July), and then in April of this year, he headed to Australia with the band to make his first Dirty Honey album, Can’t Find the Brakes.
Apparently, he’s already fit “like a glove” with the other guys - according to vocalist Marc LaBelle, Jaydon’s got an unbelievable grasp on harmony, is great at pushing songs forward, a talented singer, has a great approach to songwriting, and is really focused - as a writer and a musician. So, he’s made tangible contributions to the new album and to the band.
