David 'Dave' Mette

Laith Al-Deen, Philipp Poisel

Dave Mette (born in 1984) started playing the drums at the age of nine. He began as an autodidact on the instrument which was donated by his grandmother. Born and raised in Marburg, he already graduated his first appearances in the age of thirteen at the legendary jazz club Cavete. Shortly thereafter, he traveled throughout Germany with his band "On A Mission" and so spent the weekend on concert stages rather than on the football field. After graduation, he studied at the Mannheim Pop Academy with his teacher Prof. Udo Dahmen. Since 2005 he has been active in the live band of Laith Al-Deen. He also accompanied since several years songwriter Philipp Poisel and John Falk. In addition to these and other jobs as a tour musician, he is also working a lot as a studio musician. With some friends he also founded a musicians community called "tonbiotop" in Heidelberg.
