Drums are not just a hobby for Kory Boutin, it is what he bases his life around. Kory started ruining his parent’s furniture using markers as drumsticks at the very young age of three. Finally getting on a real drum set by the age of four, he knew there was no turning back. Growing up in a very musical family and having a semi successful musician for a father, Kory was constantly around the music. What drew him to drums at such a young age was simply the aesthetics of a drum set; the way they looked and sounded and the way he felt when he saw people play. His earliest inspirations were Peter Criss, Tommy Lee, and other rock and roll icons. As Kory got older, he started playing in terrible punk bands starting at the age of 14 but had big dreams to fulfill. He wanted to tour, play massive venues and feel wanted as a musician. Every day after school, before his parents got home from work, he would be playing drums. While trying to perfect his craft of punk rock drumming, he took interest in concert, marching, pep and jazz band during high school. He wanted to learn the different types of playing, and to learn how to read people and to connect with other musician’s, not through words but with feel and groove. Just 9 days after graduating Kory moved to Allston, MA with the intention of playing in bands and going to school. Kory had joined his former band OC45 and did everything that he wished to do since the age of 14; traveling countless miles and cities, playing in Canada, festivals, and playing with bands he had grown up listening to and even fulfilling his other dream; playing a sold out show at The Whisky a Go Go. He is no longer in OC45 but is now playing with popular bands Jason Bennett and The Resistance, and Burning Streets. With plans to put out records with both bands and continue to travel, he will play as much as he can, and hopefully make a name for himself.
