About Us

Dave Stewart (keyboards) and Barbara Gaskin (vocals) are English musicians who began their respective careers as band members in the early '70s. The duo enjoyed immediate success with their 1981 debut single 'It's My Party', a worldwide hit which reached number one in the UK and Germany. Dave & Barbara have worked together ever since, releasing their music on their own independent Broken Records label and occasionally performing live as a trio or quartet.

This site focuses on the work of Stewart / Gaskin, which can best be described as intelligent pop music. For more information, please see our info page links below. Our complete catalogue, including 12" mixes, alternative versions and bonus tracks, is now available in remastered CD format from our online store, operated by our musician friends Burning Shed. All profits from these sales go directly to the artists with no record company involvement.
