Loran Bailey

Loran Bailey began playing snare drum in his grandfather's church at a young age. His skills quickly developed as he began playing more and more. In middle school, Bailey began learning to read music to become more professional and qualify himself by taking royal school exams. Loran spent his high school years developing speed and timing behind the drum set. After graduating, he joined the Royal Bahamas Police Force where he became a member of the band division.
