Dave Gahan has earned his wealth and fame by writing and singing songs. It comes mostly from his performances in the band Depche Mode. He was included into the group when Vince Clarke heard him perform “Heroes” by David Bowie. The music group was named “Composition of Sound” at that time. In fact, it was Gahan who suggested the name to his partners in it. His suggestion was accepted. His albums “Paper Monsters” and “Hourglass” were released in 2003 and 2009, respectively. Gahan wrote three songs for Playing the Angel: Suffer Well. His songs Nothing’s impossible, Suffer Well and I want It All reached the #12 position in the UK charts.
He also wrote lyrics and sang in the album Soulsaver. He gave voice to a song called “Visitors” under the name of FrYars. David tried modeling too later on in life. In 2005, he modeled for J. Lindeberg, a Swedish fashion retailer.
He is currently living in New York City since 1997. He has a son named Jack from his first marriage. His first wife is Joanne. He then went on to marry Teresa. Their marriage lasted for four years.
