Martin Page

Page was born in Southampton, Hampshire, England, to Alan Richard Page (an aviation engineer) and Ruth Pamela Page. During a good portion of his childhood, Martin moved with his family from military base to military base as a result of his father's career. During those times, he stated that he spent a lot of time listening to early Genesis, the Beatles, and Motown musicians.

Page was an apprentice to the Southampton Saints, a professional association football (soccer) team. While he enjoyed playing within the Saints' apprentice program, Page spent a great deal of his time listening to live music and learning how to play his chief instrument, the bass guitar, and that ultimately began to affect his abilities as an association football player. After a good deal of thought and consideration, Page's love of music propelled him to leave his association football and become a professional bass player.

Martin Page (born 23 September 1959 in Southampton, England ) is a musician, singer, bass player, and noted pop songwriter. Page spent the early part of his career writing or co-writing several smash hit songs such as "We Built This City" (Starship), "King of Wishful Thinking" (Go West), and "These Dreams" (Heart). He has also written songs for artists including Robbie Robertson, Tom Jones, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Commodores, Bernie Taupin and many others.
He was a member of the early-'80s techno group Q-Feel and recorded a hit solo album, In the House of Stone and Light, in 1994. The title track, in which he wrote himself, was a hit in the same year, reaching #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and becoming a popular mainstream hit. He later released his second solo album, In the Temple of the Muse, on an independent label in 2008.
He currently resides in Southern California.
