In the early '90s, Beattie found a new sound and love, Country Music. In 1994 he released his first solo album, 'Second Chance', which produced several charting singles including the hit song, 'Fear of Flying'.

His latest project began when he awoke from a dream with an inspiration to build a putter based on a tuning fork, with wooden shafts made from exotic woods. Leaving his bed in the middle of the night, Beattie immediately began working on his vision, creating a prototype in his home workshop.
In 2014, he founded Harmonix Golf, and is responsible for the invention, development and production of the Harmonix Live-Head Putter.
