Josh Miller, aka, “Baby J” is no rookie behind the kit, even at the ripe age of 23. This south paw was born and raised in Sacramento, CA. and his unique style had him playing the local scene as a middle schooler and touring by age 16. Josh is one of the most powerful drummers on the metal scene today but that doesn’t mean he won’t lay down a smooth groove.
Baby J is currently playing on the road with Emmure and Spite and in the past has filled in with Glass Cloud, Volumes and Lionheart. He has also contributed studio work for countless artist around the world with his incredible playing. Though he is on the road and recording metal…he is a drummer with a variety of styles. People that watch him always scratch their heads on how a lefty plays a right handed kit and leads with his left foot. That is just one of his unique styles that drives the music he is performing.
Surprisingly when he is home he loves to work on his Gospel chops. A lot of that comes from the influences of different drummers such as Eric Moore, Aaron Spears, Thomas Pridgen etc..Drums are his passion, love and what has sculpted who he is today. Josh is endorsed by SJC Drums, Zildjian Cymbals, Evans Drum Heads, Vic Firth Sticks, Drum Dots and Vratrim Drum Shoes.
