After writing and demoing his own songs and receiving favourable reviews from HOTPRESS and airplay from national radio station 2FM, Dave Dwyer aka BEAD made his first studio album in 2004 called ‘High Time’. The set included live favourites ‘ Superman’ and ‘Animal’.
In 2010, he met guitarist and Producer Boz Boorer (Morrissey, Edwyn Collins, Kirsty MacColl, Adam Ant) and together they recorded BEAD’s second studio release called ‘Battle Stations’ which included Boz on guitars. Boorer is one of the most respected and experienced UK musicians having worked with Morrissey since 1991 to present.
In 2016, BEAD undertook a music production course in Dublin and set up his own project studio where he gained a more hands on approach to music production.
In June 2017, BEAD reunited with Boz in Portugal to record an eight song set which features the line up of Bead on vocals/guitars, Boz on guitars, Dave Ruffy (Waterboys, Sinead O Connor, The Ruts) on drums and Stuart Wilcock on fiddle.
His music is available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon Music, Soundcloud and Bandcamp.
