Harry Miree is an American drummer originally from Birmingham, Alabama, currently residing in Nashville, Tennessee. He has been the drummer for LoCash, Nashville's Clare Bowen,[1] Ryan Follese of Hot Chelle Rae[2], Levi Hummon,[3] and Joey Hyde.[4]


Miree was a founding member of the rock band Boom City,[5] which used the internet as a platform for music and videos. Boom City signed with a major rock label, toured arenas with Panic! at the Disco, and then disbanded. Miree graduated Berklee College of Music[6] and moved to Nashville, securing the spot as touring drummer for recording artist Whitney Wolanin.[7]

In 2014, Miree used his prior experience with internet video as a platform for creativity to begin posting weekly drumming videos to YouTube from his Nashville home.[8] He showed expertise in the open-handed drumming techniques of Dave Matthews Band drummer Carter Beauford.[9]

In 2015 he toured with then-Capitol Records artist Joey Hyde,[10] and in 2016 toured with Big Machine artist Levi Hummon.[11] In 2017, Miree toured with LoCash (known for hit songs I Love This Life and I Know Somebody), and Clare Bowen, singer/actress known for her role as Scarlett O'Connor on the television show Nashville.[12]

Personal Life[edit]

While Miree was in college, his only brother Kyser was murdered at home in Mobile, Alabama.[13] During the public outrage that followed, Miree urged the press to "love and forgive" Kyser's killers.[14][15]
