     Blissed is a hard rock band formed in 2002 by David Pearson and Trevor Barr. The original line up was David Pearson, Robert Sweet of Stryper, Trevor Barr and Jeff Miller.

    The band released their debut EP called IIII, followed by their first album, Waking Up The Dead (KR Records, 2002). This CD went to retail through Central South Distribution, Bayside and Select O Hits. The CD was well received as were the songs from Waking Up The Dead on Radio. Partnering with Pure Tracking, Concrete Marketing and Skateboard, Blissed received airplay throughout North America and Europe. They broke the top 50 on the CMJ charts, received airplay on FMBQ and found themselves in many top 10s in the CCM market as well, some songs staying in the top ten for up to 16 weeks.

    During the first weeks of the Waking Up The Dead Tour Blissed toured from California to Michigan, through the Midwest and to Texas. Their European tour started in Holland, with crowd of more than 4,000 attending. They were given the opportunity to perform again the next day. This concert saw the band headline a group of five bands. Blissed then travelled through Belgium and France and into England and north into Scotland. The band finished up the tour in London at the Garage. Interviews appeared in Powerplay, CCM, Hebbez, Rock Tribune and Metal Hammer.

    On the last leg of touring Blissed performed in Niagara Falls, Atlanta, Orlando, Jacksonville, Chattanooga, Nashville, New York City, Long Island, Youngstown, Cleveland, Detroit, Battle Creek, Wilmington, Tulsa, Fort Worth and Wichita. At the end of the tour in 2004 Blissed began to record new material for an unnamed label. 2 tracks were produced during this time period. Superhero - written by Jeff Miller & David Pearson and Monster - written by David Pearson & Trevor Barr. Full pre-production of Superhero was achieved, but full pre-production of Monster was never achieved. Subsequently, Trevor Barr (guitars) parted ways with Blissed and has not been hear of musically again since. It was at this time that Stryper reunited and Blissed changed its line-up to include David Pearson (vocals/guitar), Jeff Miller (guitar/vocals), Nathan Kojak (drums/vocals), and Russ Wood (bass/vocals). - Wikipedia
