Luca Caruso is a drummer, producer and songwriter from London who is currently touring and recording as part of Beabadoobee’s band.
During his undergrad course at The Royal Academy of Music, he established himself as one of the UK’s most in-demand drummers, giving him the opportunity to play with countless extraordinary musicians.
Alongside a flourishing career as a jazz drummer, Luca’s love for rock and pop music encouraged his broader involvement in live and studio environments with artists such as Orlando Weeks, Yellow Days, Isaac Gracie, Cian Ducrot, Delilah Montagu, Dylan Fraser and Etta Marcus, showcasing his versatility as an accomplished musician.
A passion for piano and guitar has notably enriched Luca’s drumming, encouraging a shift in his approach to the instrument to encompass the whole, where the focus of the song is brought to the foreground.
After joining Beabadoobee in April 2021, Luca has performed in arenas, theatres and festivals across the globe. Glastonbury, Coachella and Rock en Seine were amongst the band’s 2022 festival performances as well as having appeared on Jimmy Fallon and BBC Live Lounge. Luca played drums on the latest LP, “Beatopia” which peaked at No. 1 in the UK Independent Albums and No. 4 in the UK Albums charts while rising to critical acclaim since its release in July 2022. In 2023, the band is set to support Taylor Swift on her stadium tour of the US and continues its busy schedule of headline shows throughout Europe, the US and Asia.
