Dave Dobbyn says that since day one, he has had a tune in his head. He'd be twiddling the dial on the radiogram, 'travelling the world in music'. Across the road was a church, full of songs in which to hide.

A shy schoolboy, he blossomed into a peroxided popstar in his first band Th' Dudes, formed with his schoolfriends in the late '70s. Taking centre-stage' with his next band DD Smash, Dobbyn made history when the debut album rocketed to No 1 in the first week of its release. As a solo artist his 'Slice of Heaven' spent eight weeks at No 1 in New Zealand, and four in Australia where he lived for 10 years until the early '90s.

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'
