Immersed in music since birth, Neal Ostrovsky, the son of a classical violinist, started playing violin, piano and drums as a child. By his teen years he started to focus primarily on drums, and later graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in professional music.

A short time after graduating, he found himself playing drums with a group of musicians that later developed into The Webb Brothers. Under the Warner UK label (Atlantic in the US), The Webb Brothers recorded and released three albums, working with renowned producers Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur, The Cranberries, The Kaiser Chiefs, New Order) and Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Weezer, Spoon). The band performed extensively to support their records, touring with such acts as The Bluetones, The Eels, Doves, The Darkness and OK Go. With The Webb Brothers, Neal performed at T in the Park, V and Reading & Leeds Festivals, and also appeared on “Later – with Jools Holland.”

In between their tours and recording schedule, Neal built and ran B-Side Audio, a recording studio in Chicago. Neal continues to keep himself busy recording and performing with various projects, including the Bon Mots, The House of Soviet Eyewear and his own solo work.
