Beeb Birtles developed a passion for music at a young age when his parents bought him a piano-accordion while growing up in Amsterdam. After emigrating to Australia with his family, Beeb started singing and playing bass in bands with friends from high school. This passion for music eventually developed into a career once the band he was playing in started to get shows in the bigger cities. Beeb went on to be in groups such as Zoot and Mississippi, and ultimately ended up in the group Little River Band when he, Graeham Goble and Glenn Shorrock discovered the harmonies the three could achieve together. Little River Band enjoyed great success in both Australia and the United States.
