James Dean (I Wanna Know) - Daniel Bedingfield - Top 40 Singles

New Zealand Artist: Daniel Bedingfield

The crass proverb tells us that one never gets a second chance to make a first impression. In most instances, that phrase contains a grain of truth. But what if that weren't always the case? What if it was possible to innovate, adapt, develop and expand on those first impressions, and offer something at once entirely new and wholly familiar? What if there were a performer whose music made it impossible not to reassess whatever your initial first impressions of that performer might have been? Enough of the what-ifs. 25-year-old Daniel Bedingfield is that performer. And he's learned all too well in the last year that when life's rare second chances come along they must be grasped with both hands.

Bedingfield was born in New Zealand then raised by social worker parents in South East London. By age six he was writing songs, by age nine rapping along to a boombox at school, and by age sixteen was composing on his first keyboard. When he was eighteen, Daniel wrote the song that would change everything. A song of self-belief, frustration and the first pangs of young love, 'Gotta Get Thru This' sat unopened for months in A&R-man bins around London.
