Sean William Michael "Mike" Heaton (born 18 September 1967 in Bradford) is the drummer for the English rock band Embrace. He is nicknamed 'Besty' after the original drummer of The Beatles, Pete Best.

He played the clarinet at the beginning of 'Drawn From Memory' (the title track of his band's second album), and also wrote 'Still So Young' (b-side of 'Save Me').

On 31 October 2005, directly after his band had played a live gig for Radio One in Leeds city centre, he was rushed to hospital to meet his new baby daughter Connie Rose, as he became a father for the second time.
