David James John Dwyer has used the moniker ‘Bead’ ™ since first playing Whelans of Wexford Street as a solo songwriter in 1994. 

“Like Badly Drawn Boy or Sun Kil Moon, ‘Bead’ was a better fit for my musical collaborations.”

In November 2020, the single ‘Earth Monkey’ described as a vegetarian anthem was released on band camp.

Bead’s music is available on Bandcamp, iTunes and most streaming services.
