David James John Dwyer has used the moniker ‘Bead’ ™ since first playing Whelans of Wexford Street as a solo songwriter in 1994.
In 2003, I collaborated with local music producer Dave McCune to record and release my first full length 10 track album called ‘High Time’.
In 2010, after seeing a poster in Tower Records, I got the idea to work with Morrissey‘s guitarist Boz Boorer.
We met and recorded the 8 song album ‘Battle Stations’ in Portugal.
In 2017, I teamed up with Boz again and drummer Dave Ruffy to record 5 song EP (‘Country Mountain’) featuring electric and acoustic guitars, fiddle, bass, guest vocalist Clare Murphy and drums. The EP was mastered for iTunes by Grammy award winning engineer Tim Young in Metropolis Studios, London.
In November 2020, described as a vegetarian anthem the single ‘Earth Monkey’ was released on band camp.
