J.B. Beverley was born in Virginia in 1977. Reared in a musical household, Beverley grew up on early country, bluegrass, rockabilly, big bands and various forms of old time blues. By his teens he was bitten by the punk bug and began spending long nights at DC’s 9:30 Club and other haunts. Learning drums and guitar, J.B. formed his first band, The Bad Habits in 1993. An old-school punk band rooted in influences like The Misfits, FEAR, Black Flag and Motörhead, the band made a name in the DC area but disbanded in 1996.
With the Bad Habits gone, Beverley drifted. Working odd jobs and traveling by bus and freight train, J.B. began writing old time country blues songs and busking on street corners to get by. In 1998, he began commuting between the Washington DC area and New York City when he became the front-man for The MURDER JUNKIES, former band of the late GG Allin. The gig lasted over a year, but ended when Beverley found himself at odds with the law back in the DC area.
In 1999, after resolving his legal issues, J.B. spent several months in Florida compiling his country blues songs, and re-learning some old standards. He emerged back in the DC area later that year with his honky-tonk outfit J.B. Beverley & The Wayward Drifters, and subsequently began touring locally and regionally with the band. In the fall of 2002, J.B. formed another punk rock band in the same vein as the Bad Habits called The Little White Pills. Reminiscent of the Bad Habits, the Little White Pills were a heavier band, with a rough edge and some mature playing. The Little White Pills released a self-produced CD in 2003 called "Live At The Velvet Lounge".
In 2004, J.B. rejoined the Murder Junkies for two tours, and the Wayward Drifters released a self-produced CD entitled "Highball". J.B. also found time to record some local projects and work on new material for all of his respective bands. In 2005, the Wayward Drifters launched a spring tour called "The American Highball Tour", and spent most of the summer touring with friend Hank Williams III. The Wayward Drifters immediately hit the studio after the summer touring and have recorded their debut studio CD titled "Dark Bar & A Juke Box" for HELLTRAIN RECORDS. The CD received rave reviews and praise from all over the world.
J.B. and the Wayward Drifters tour non-stop in the US and made an appearance in Europe since the release of "Dark Bar". Much of the touring has been documented for an upcoming film about JB and the Wayward Drifters by Wayward Souls Productions (no formal relation to the band) set for release in 2010. Beverley also opened REBEL ROOTS STUDIO just outside Richmond, VA in late 2008. It was there that he and his Wayward Drifters recorded their sophomore effort "Watch America Roll By", which was released to rave reviews in June of 2009.
Outside of touring and recording in 2010, J.B. is also writing a book, writing a feature film, and is doing some theatrical acting in the Richmond area. He has began recording other musicians at REBEL ROOTS, and is working on a slew of side projects and lost recordings in his spare time.
