David Bedell
Plush - United States

Overview

David is currently with the band Plush Society.

Before then, he was involved with Arizona based F5. That all started in 2003 as bassist David Ellefson had worked with the singer, Dale Steele, as he produced some demo tracks for a band Dale was in Minnesota. David also was working a group that included guitar player Steve Conley & drummer Dave, they were in a group called Lifted in Phoenix.

They all stayed in touch; and in early 2003 Dave Small asked David if he wanted to come over and do some jamming; just kind of three friends in a room: David, Steve & Dave. They did it, & within a couple of days they had already written almost half a dozen songs, like five or six songs. They demoed them up, sent those to Dale in Minneapolis, he sang on them, sent them back, & they just sounded amazing. So Dale moved down to Phoenix, where they continued to write; then they realized they needed to bring in another guitar player, & Steve knew John Davis.

Within about three or four months time, F5 was formed. They started sending the music out to record companies, & initially JVC in Japan was the first record company to come on board. They continued to write almost 30 songs, & went in the studio in the spring (March or April) 2004, to record the album with producer Ryan Greene & Steve Smith as the executive producer. By early July the sessions were completed, they played a few concerts in Arizona & in California after that, the response was really good.

The cd "A Drug for all Seasons" came out on JVC in Japan/Asia in July 2005. In August 2005 the cd came out on Mascot in Europe and finally in North America/ US on September 13th 2005.
