After writing his own songs for several years and receiving favourable reviews from HOTPRESS music magazine and airplay from local and national radio stations including 2FM, Bead released his first studio album in 2004 under his own name and called it ‘High Time’. The songs included live favourites ‘ Superman’, ‘Nine To Five’ and ‘Valium Day’.
In 2010, Bead 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. Boz 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.
