Biography

David Poe is an American songwriter, singer, musician, performer and composer.

Poe was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and raised in Dayton, Ohio, where he performed and recorded with local bands. He graduated from Miami University (Oxford) and relocated to New York City in 1992, serving as a live mix engineer for the performance art venue CB’s 313 Gallery until he was signed to Sony Music in 1996.

Poe’s self-titled debut was produced by T-Bone Burnett. Poe followed his debut with The Late Album (2002) and Love Is Red (2004 in Europe, 2005 in the US by 720/The Lab/Universal Music Group.) In 2006, an EP of performances from his American tour of the same year was released by The Artists Den on iTunes as David Poe: Live and Solo. Recently Poe’s website announced his intention to release another solo record in 2007, tentatively entitled “Joy”.

As a songwriter, he is known for clever wordplay (“You’re The Bomb,” “Moon,” “Reunion,” “Wilderness,” “Love Is Red”) and adventurous arrangements (“The Late Song (Je Ne Suis Pas Mort), Star, Not Enough Night.) Poe’s music has been favorably compared to songwriters Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, Ray Davies, Joni Mitchell and The Beatles. His songs have been featured in numerous films and television shows, including Transamerica, The O.C. and Dawson’s Creek.
