Beric was born and raised in London's Soho, and trained in musical theatre at Guildford School of Acting.
He was the frontman of indie bands The Healing Fields and Playing Nervous during the noughties, performing at venues and festivals all over the UK and Europe including London's O2 Academy Islington, the Astoria, the Garage and the Clapham Grand. He has remixed and produced in various musical styles, composed for stage and film, created bespoke tracks for performers, and written music and lyrics for a rock opera based on the life of King Ludwig II of Bavaria. In 2013, Beric set up a mixing and post-production facility on a 300-acre farm in Cambridgeshire, selling it in 2020 and relocating to Barking, on the London-Essex border. Malted Music opened at Barking's Malthouse in 2021. Most recently, Beric's been experimenting with photography and video; a selection of his stills are here.
As an actor, Beric has appeared in a wide range of theatre productions as well as in radio plays, audiobooks, on television and in short films. This year he was delighted to be a soloist in a new recording of Teresa Barlow's epic Requiem 2020, and is working on the narration of an audiobook recording of Michael Gallagher's Octopus. In 2022 his work on Future's Past, a modern-day retelling of the Jack the Ripper story, was featured on Louisa & the Bad Girls' music video - watch it here. Beric played Mr Craven and puppeteered in a musical version of The Secret Garden and played the role of Perks in the full-cast recording of The Railway Children. In 2021 he was cast as Elyot in Private Lives and was part of the multi-role company of The Princess and the Pauper, a new musical interpretation aimed at both hearing and non-hearing audiences, in which the actors signed all the songs as part of the choreography. In 2019 Beric played Alan Bennett in The Lady in the Van, John Malcolm in Separate Tables, William Warren in California Suite and Daddy/Szczepansky in a new musical production of The Railway Children. Beric devised and presented the Random Roads Music Project, a 13,000-mile road trip across the United States, working with local musicians to record a song for Amnesty International. He hosted 101 episodes of HQ Trivia, which with over a million players from the UK alone was the country's most popular quiz app, named as one of 2018's 50 Most Genius Companies by Time Magazine. Beric was also a guest host on Confetti, produced by Thames/Fremantle Television, and hosted a similar trivia game for Mail Newspapers during lockdown in 2020. Earlier that year Beric was a guest on Memory Lane 80s, broadcast on Sky, choosing and chatting about his favourite 80s songs.
Beric narrated the audiobook Gorilla and Okapi, by Nick Corbett, available from Amazon, iTunes or through Audible at this link, and acts and sings multiple roles in Citizen Paine, which launched in September 2020 and for which Beric also did post-production - find it here.
