Beaux Latham
Composer

Beaux Latham has been performing music for as long as he can remember. The earliest instrument being the desk at preschool (when the teacher asked him to stop drumming on the top of it, he switched to drumming on the bottom), he soon after made the transition to a real drum kit. He picked up some piano and many other instruments along the way, and has been a member of several different rock, experimental, and jazz groups. He performs covers of pop songs in the “imaginary” southern band, Beaux Bros., which he regularly posts at beauxbrothers.blogspot.com. While working as an animator in the advertising industry, he also puts his musical talents to use composing background music for occasional jobs. Café con Leche is his first soundtrack for film, composed and performed entirely in his home studio. He currently resides with his wife, Laurel, (who plays cello on the soundtrack) and their daughter Ivy in Manhattan.
