A former native of Dayton, songwriter David Poe left home to seek his fortune in New York City. Signed to Sony Music and now a composer fellow of the Sundance Institute, Poe has released seven critically-acclaimed solo albums, toured the world, performed on national television, collaborated with living legends like T Bone Burnett, Bob Dylan, and Joan Baez, and written music for a diverse array of artists including Curtis Stigers, CC White, Ana Moura, Grace Potter, and Daryl Hall. He has been featured on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday, World Cafe, and Mountain Stage.
Poe’s numerous TV and film credits include Dexter, Nashville, The Today Show, The Diary of A Teenage Girl, and Dawson’s Creek. Commissioned scores for dance include work for the American Repertory Theater, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, Harvard Dance Center, and “Shadowland” by Pilobolus, which toured for over a decade on five continents, was made into a feature film, won the Lunas del Auditorio award, and gave a command performance for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
David Poe’s new album Everyone’s Got A Camera (ECR Music Group/SONY/The Orchard) will be released on September 23, 2022.
