Dougie is the bass player and backing vocalist of british pop-rock band McFly. He has co-writer credits on many of McFly's tracks, including the lead writer credit on their 2007 number one single "Transylvania". Poynter also wrote an unrecorded track called Silence Is A Scary Sound, which is featured as a live recording on their third studio album Motion In The Ocean. Poynter was 15 when he joined the band.

A few days ago Tom said he would be joining Niall from One Direction for a writing session and it was sooner than later as all this week Danny, Dougie and Tom have been writing some songs with Niall.
One Direction star Niall Horan has revealed he has been writing new songs with his good friends McFly.
Irish heartthrob Niall told fans he was penning tracks with the British band, while popping down to visit Tom Fletcher’s newborn baby boy Buzz Michelangelo.
‘Story of My Life’ singer Niall tweeted that he had “wrote another cool song” with McFly’s Dougie Poynter, Danny Jones and Tom.
He later added: “Also I met little Buzz Fletcher last night! Soo cute! @MrsGiFletcher @tommcfly.” Tom similarly tweeted: “Last night I wrote a song with @NiallOfficial and then went home and got peed on by my son. Loved both!”
Niall’s songwriting skills seemed to have gained him one fan on the night too – Danny’s fiancée Georgia Horsley!
Former Miss England Georgia posted a photo of Danny and Niall on the piano, telling fans on Twitter that their songs were helping her to have a good night’s sleep.
She said: “A little serenade before bedtime!! I’ll sleep like a baby now for sure!! @Dannymcfly @NiallOfficial.”
It’s not the first time that Niall has teamed up with McFly to write songs, as they also collaborated on several tracks early last year for 1D’s album.
Niall is making the most of his free time before he heads off with his One Direction bandmates – Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik – to kick off their mammoth worldwide stadium tour in May.
