Daniel Bedingfield

Daniel John Bedingfield (born 3 December 1979) is an English-New Zealand singer, songwriter and record producer. He is the brother of fellow singers Natasha Bedingfield and Nikola Rachelle. He was a judge on The X Factor New Zealand in 2013.

He released his first single, "Gotta Get Thru This" in November 2001. It gathered momentum on white label through the UK garage music scene, and peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart. He has since had two more number-one singles on the chart ― "If You're Not The One" and "Never Gonna Leave Your Side" ― as well as three further top ten hits. His debut album, also titled Gotta Get Thru This, which was recorded at home using Making Waves Audio software,  peaked at number two on the UK Albums Chart and went on to sell more than 4 million copies worldwide.

In 2004, Bedingfield won a BRIT Award for Best British Male Artist. He then moved to the Universal Music subsidiary label Polydor Records to release his second album, Second First Impression, which reached number 8 in the UK. The album sold poorly compared to his first offering, though it did include two UK Top 20 singles, "Nothing Hurts Like Love" (which reached number three) and "Wrap My Words Around You" (which peaked at number 12). The third and final single, "The Way", became his first to miss the top 40, reaching number 41. The album was also released in Singapore (featuring 'If You're Not The One' as a bonus track) but not the U

In an interview with the New Zealand Herald in April 2007, Bedingfield said that, after a four-year hiatus, he had three albums recorded and awaiting release.[4]

Since his last release in 2004, Bedingfield continued to work with other artists. He co-wrote the song "Works for Me!" for American Idol finalist David Archuleta. He has also worked with Pixie Lott, and contributed guest vocals on a track by a former member of The Roots. In December 2009, he co-wrote material with Tessanne Chin as well as recorded three songs with Busy Signal at DJ Karim's Stainless Records studios in Kingston, Jamaica.

 Bedingfield provided backing vocals for the Kirsten Morrell track "He Walked In" from the album Ultraviolet,  which was released in May 2010. In December 2010, Bedingfield spent a month in Tel Aviv, Israel, where he wrote and recorded a song with a local freak folk band, The Raw Men Empire. He concluded his visit with a Tel Aviv gig, hosting Uzi Feinerman, The Raw Men Empire and a variety of other Israeli musicians. In July 2011, he recorded on a dancehall riddim called the Overproof Riddim. Like many of the songs on this riddim, it has been getting good rotation in Jamaica.

If You're Not the One


"If You're Not the One" is a song by English singer Daniel Bedingfield. It was released on 22 November 2002 as the third single from his debut studio album Gotta Get Thru This (2002).

The single entered the top 20 on the majority of charts that it appeared on, including being a number-one hit in the UK Singles Chart,  and reaching number 15 in the United States.

"If You're Not the One" is written as a love ballad.  Bedingfield claims to have been inspired by the band Westlife, when writing and recording the song.  Bedingfield himself believes that the song is "cheesy."[4] Bedingfield admitted he began writing the song because he realized that material he considered more "complex", was unlikely to get him a record deal.

 "Commercialism, sappy lyrics and meek tunes are the things I hate most in the universe, but I'm not sure even Bob Dylan could get record company interest without hooks these days", Bedingfield recalled in an interview with The Daily Telegraph.  "It's a different age. You need to go some kind of populist route. So, about three years ago, I sat down with a Westlife song and tried to write something similar."

Bedingfield also admitted that he didn't even want to put the song on his album.[5] He said, "I didn't want to put "If You're Not the One" on the album as I thought it was too cheesy. I thought it sounded like Westlife. But she (Natasha Bedingfield, his sister) loved it. Women that hear it go all soft and think it's lovely"
