Beauty School Dropout (BSD) is a Los Angeles-based “Renegade-Pop” band that launched in 2020. The five-piece outfit began with vocalist, Cole Hutzler, drummer, Mike Rose, and bassist, Brent Burdett; all formally of alt-rock group Strangefaces. The evolution of BSD began with what was initially Hutzler’s solo project. As he teamed up with producers Diego Ruelas and Bardo to shape the sound, former bandmates Mike and Brent followed soon after to join the collaborative process. BSD is currently working with 3x Grammy-winning rock producer, Rob Cavallo on their debut EP.
Coining the term “Renegade-pop”, Beauty School Dropout is a seamless mixture of pop, rock, punk, and hip hop.
