Biography

Martin Page (born 23 September 1959 in Southampton, England) is a musician, singer, bass player, and noted pop songwriter. Page spent the early part of his career writing or co-writing several smash hit songs such as “We Built This City” (Starship), “King of Wishful Thinking” (Go West), and “These Dreams” (Heart). He has also written songs for artists including Robbie Robertson, Tom Jones, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Commodores, Bernie Taupin and many others.

He was a member of the early-’80s techno group Q-Feel and recorded a hit solo album, In the House of Stone and Light, in 1994. The title track, in which he wrote himself, was a hit in the same year, reaching #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and becoming a popular mainstream hit. He later released his second solo album, In the Temple of the Muse, on an independent label in 2008.

He currently resides in Southern California.

    "House of Stone and Light" is interesting to fans of Star Wars because the song is exactly the rhetoric of the Emperor about what Darth Vader should focus on: healing. He was mortally wounded and left in fire, and his beloved wife died. After he got the suit, and despite his inhuman powers, healing is what he must do.

    First album is pretty great, even now. Second's hit and miss, though there's a couple gems on there.

    Oh, for those interested in two other songs besides the two albums he has. Check out Count on Me and Healing Waters. Drifting into view as listed above is of an artist called Morgan Page, I almost died when I heard about a possible new release of this beautiful artist.

    My most beloved artist EVER! His songs are technically so good, mr Page must be quite the perfectionist. I'll join that group, Doommagic, thanks for putting it up.

    I have been a constant listener to In The House Of Stone And Light since it first came out back in '94 (when I was just a lowly 7 year old second grader). I love that album more than any other. Now that he has a new album, I couldn't be happier. I'm pretty sure I shit a brick when I first heard about it in the works. It's a great new set of songs to add to his already amazing collection of wor
