ISLINGTON ASSEMBLY HALL :: DAVE DOBBYN :: 27/10/16

Dave Dobbyn has written the soundtrack to kiwi lives, with a string of hits including ‘Beside You’, ‘Be Mine Tonight’ ‘Language’, ‘Outlook for Thursday’, ‘Loyal’, ‘Whaling’, ‘Kingdom Come’, ‘It Dawned On Me’, ‘Guilty’, ‘Devil You Know’, ‘Slice of Heaven’, ‘Magic What She Do’, ‘Oughta Be in Love’ , ‘Welcome Home’.…

His enduring popularity is reinforced with polls of Top 100 songs returning ‘Loyal’ at No 1 year on year, and he holds the most Silver Scroll Awards for song-writing. In 2001, Dobbyn was given a lifetime achievement award by the New Zealand recording industry.

After a six-year gap, his 2006 album ‘Available Light’ won him Male Artist of the Year and included the anthemic ‘Welcome Home’ , produced by Neil Finn and 2005’s Single of the Year. ‘Anotherland’, his 2008 release, was produced by the legendary UK dub-reggae maestro Adrian Sherwood and Skip ‘Little Axe’ McDonald and recorded in London.

Last year, after an eight year gap, Dave Dobbyn released his 10th solo studio album, ‘Harmony House’. Produced by Sam Flynn Scott and Luke Buda of The Phoenix Foundation, the album (available from Amazon) brings new music to a catalogue that now spans over 40 years.
