Bead is the moniker of musician and songwriter Dave Dwyer from Dublin, Ireland.

Writing songs on acoustic guitar since he was 19, he recorded and self released his first album 'High Time' in 2004. He obtained some attention from local radio stations and National station 2FM for tracks including 'Superman', 'Monkey With The Bloodshot Eyes' and 'Heaven'. Bead received favourable live reviews from Hotpress magazine for his IMRO Showcase appearance in Whelans.

For his second album, Bead decided to team up with Morrissey's guitarist Boz Boorer who produced and played on the album recorded in Portugal. 'Battle Stations' was self-released in 2010 and is now available on iTunes, Spotify, GooglePlay and Bandcamp.

In 2015, he built his own home recording studio following the completion of a producers course.

In 2017, Bead collaborated again with Boz in Portugal for his acoustic EP 'Country Mountain'. Now available on CD Baby, Amazon Music and Google Play.
