A daring emcee, artist and entrepreneur from Edmonton, Alberta, Doug Bedard AKA Plex has taken his experience of growing up on North-side Beverly streets to the masses with a message 15 years in the making about competing to survive adversity and ultimately rising to the top.
Living in a duplex through adolescence, people began to refer to him as "Doug from the Duplex" eventually shortening the epithet to Plex. With a distinct ear for music and hunger to be a part of the scene he turned on the drive, resulting in the creation of a career permitting him to groom and reshape artists with similar ambitions ready to compete on a global level.
Plex released his first solo album “Brainstorm” in 2009 - a culturally relevant and lyrically proficient album that challenges popular opinion. It refuses to sugarcoat experiences or preach lessons learned. It begs you to get up and groove to well thought out beats and sing along to lyrics crafted long before their time. This album is motivating, bold, and entertaining in equal measure.
Plex performed and will appear on the highly anticipated television show “Arbor Live” hosted by international icon Stevie Salas. Plex recently delivered a show stopping performance in the “Larger Than Life” showcase featuring himself, Marc Nadjiwan, Jason Burnstick, The Johnny's, Sierra Noble and special guest Bruce Cockburn, which was taped as a series to be shown in Cineplex Odeon theaters nation wide.
