“David Poe gives the singer-songwriter genre a much-needed jolt.” — Rolling Stone  

David Poe’s exuberant new single “Post” arrives March 31st on ECR Music Group. “Post” is a light-hearted, 1960s-tinged breakup song for the modern era––one in which your ex is falling in love again and celebrating it in posts on social media. “I’m happy for you,” Poe sings to his ex about her new love interest, “but I wish I didn’t know who it was.” 

This second single from Poe’s highly-anticipated new album Everyone’s Got A Camera (September 23rd, 2022) follows on the success of the album’s debut single “People Clap Hands,” which has been included on over 100 editorial playlists in 17 countries, and "Gun For A Mouth," all from his forthcoming album Everyone's Got A Camera.

“Every songwriter worth their salt is striving for the kind of balanced poetry and simplicity that Poe seems to just pour out,” said No Depression of Poe’s most recent full-length effort God & The Girl. NME describes Poe’s songs as “Storytelling with beautiful, lush, guitar-underpinned music.” The Village Voice declared him “The major domo of songwriters.”  

Poe's single releases from the last few years, including "Who Built The Wall" and "What The President Said" have fired up social media and been shared by the likes of Gloria Steinem, Jane Fonda, and T Bone Burnett.   

David Poe has toured the world with Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Tori Amos, The Jayhawks, and Glenn Tilbrook of Squeeze. Poe’s songs have been performed by a wide array of artists, including Daryl Hall and Grace Potter, Curtis Stigers, Oh Land, Ana Moura, Thomas Dybdahl, the cast of ABC’s Nashville. Notable musical collaborators include guitarist Marc Ribot, pianist Larry Goldings, singer C.C. White, and Broadway composer Duncan Sheik. His songs have been recorded by producers T-Bone Burnett, Larry Klein, Buddy Miller, Al Sgro, and Dave Sitek. Poe has also produced recordings for other artists, including Regina Spektor, Brendan Hines, and Kraig Jarret Johnson & The Program.

A composer fellow of the Sundance Institute, Poe's work is often paired with picture, theater, and dance: on TV, he's had songs on the Today Show, Dexter, Nashville, The O.C., and Scooby-Doo and Guess Who; in film, Diary Of A Teenage Girl, Transamerica, Triple 9, and official selections of the Sundance Film Festival; dance and theater projects include commissioned work for the American Repertory Theater, Rambert Dance Company, Harvard Dance Center, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, Son of Semele, and The Tank.

Shadowland, a collaboration with contemporary dance company Pilobolus, toured for a decade and was performed on five continents and for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II before finally being released as a feature film in which Poe's songs, electronic and orchestral score are the only audio. Poe has also crafted songs that became themes for the Malala Fund, the Interfaith Sanctuary's fund drive and vaccination campaign for unhoused people, the You Mean The World Foundation initiative for pediatric AIDS research, and sociopolitical podcasts like The Bully Pulpit and A Simple Herstory. 

Transplanted from the American Midwest to New York City, David Poe served as the sound engineer at CBGB’s 313 Gallery before signing with Sony/Epic. He currently lives in Los Angeles.
