Dave Dobbyn, ONZM is a New Zealand award-winning musician, singer-songwriter and record producer. In his early career he was a member of the rock group Th' Dudes and was the main creative force in popsters DD Smash, but since then has released the majority of his recordings as a solo performer. Dobbyn's first success came with rock band, Th' Dudes, which he joined soon after leaving Sacred Heart College in the suburb of Glen Innes, Auckland. The band's hit "Be Mine Tonight" won single of the year in 1979 in New Zealand, while "Bliss" has become an iconic New Zealand drinking song. After Th' Dudes folded, Dobbyn formed pop group DD Smash. The band's first album Cool Bananas debuted in the New Zealand charts at number one. The band's hit singles included "Devil you Know," "Outlook for Thursday," and the violin-tinged "Whaling."When DD Smash folded, Dobbyn began a successful solo career, by writing the soundtrack music for the animated feature film Footrot Flats: The Dog's Tale in 1986show more
