David Lewis Gedge (born 23 April 1960, in Bramley) is an English musician and songwriter.
Gedge grew up in Middleton, Greater Manchester in the area known as Top of Hebers. He attended Hollin High School (that became the Queen Elizabeth School and is now the re-built St Anne's Academy). He studied at the University of Leeds, graduating with a 2.1 BSc Mathematics in 1981.
Gedge, together with Peter Solowka, fellow founder member, met Keith Gregory, an English student, by placing an advert for a bass player in the Leeds University Union.
He is the main songwriter and vocalist in the bands The Wedding Present and Cinerama. He sang a duet with Marine Research on their 1999 Peel Session.
“The boy Gedge has written some of the best love songs of the 'Rock ‘n’ Roll' era. You may dispute this, but I’m right and you’re wrong!” John Peel.
