Biography

Dave Hewson is an electronic musician from the UK, best known as founding member and driving force behind the synthpop group Poeme electronique

Dave began his musical journey at the age of 11 when he started classical piano lessons and started composing. As soon as he discovered electronic music, he became fascinated by this wonderful world of sound, creating tracks on his old tape machine, making loops of sounds into rhythms changing their speed and pitch. In 1975, Dave’s mum saved up to buy him an EMS Synthi AKS, and he has never looked back, playing and acquiring most of the well known synths and drum machines over the years.

He set up his first small 4 track recording studio, and started to write songs with Sharon in 1979. In 1985, a second 16 track studio was created in London with his brother Les, at that time some of the material for Les’s band Stagestruk was recorded. Stagestruk had a strong fan base in South London and released their only single written by Dave and Sharon “Smoke” - sadly this was banned by the radio stations.
After the lack of interest in Poeme electronique and Stagestruk, Dave embarked on a career in TV music, and set up another studio and started to concentrate more on his own work. He is now continuing with all his projects, including the resurrection of the Poeme electronique albums.
