Dave is much loved as the drummer of iconic British band Blur. Outside of the group, he is a Labour councillor, solicitor, animator and creates music for both TV and film.
Born to musical parents in Colchester, Dave’s first musical adventures were studying percussion at Landermere Music School.
He played in various bands with childhood friend Graham Coxon, before hooking up with Damon Albarn and later Alex James to form the band Seymour. They later became Blur and the rest is history.
Outside of Blur, Dave has been a DJ on XFM where he debuted tracks on the radio by artists such as Rat Boy, Pretty Vicious, The Big Moon and Aurora. He also co-founded The Featured Artists Coalition and Star Boot Sale, a charitable project where musicians donate their possessions to raise money for refugees.
