Biography

Martin Lee Gore (born 23 July 1961) is an English songwriter, musician, singer, record producer, and DJ. He is one of the founding members of the electronic rock band Depeche Mode and is its primary songwriter. Gore is the band’s guitarist and keyboardist, contributes backing vocals, and occasionally provides lead vocals. Gore possesses a tenor singing voice which contrasts with Dave Gahan’s dramatic baritone and is also known for his flamboyant and (sometimes) androgynous stage persona. Gore has also released several solo albums and collaborated with former Depeche Mode member Vince Clarke as part of VCMG.
Gore’s lyrics included themes such as sex, religion, and politics. Gore has said he feels lyrical themes which tackle issues related to solitude and loneliness are a better representation of reality, whereas he finds “happy songs” fake and unrealistic. At the same time, he asserts that the band’s music contains “an element of hope.”
In 1999 he received the Ivor Novello Award from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors for “International Achievement”, the Moog Innovation Award “for his many contributions to the exploration of sound in popular music” in 2019, and became a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member in late 2020 with fellow Depeche Mode members, Andrew Fletcher and Dave Gahan.
