‘Gray’s antecedents aren’t sappy MOR balladeers but Van Morrison, Springsteen and the Waterboys’ Mike Scott: creators of big, visionary, complex music’ Guardian
‘Britain’s leading male singer songwriter has no peers’ Evening Standard
David Gray has established himself as one of the UK’s leading music artists both at home and overseas. With a career now spanning over fifteen years, David’s commercial success is also backed up by a critical consensus and numerous accolades. His 2009 release Draw The Line continued his progress on both sides of the Atlantic. In the US, the album debuted in the Billboard Top 10 – his first album ever to do so, this was followed by two extensive sold out tours with Gray playing to some of the largest audiences of his career. In 2010 Foundling, Gray’s 9th studio album picked up where Draw the Line left off, creating a new chapter of lush, soulful songs that found Gray returning to his folk music roots. The album notched up a further Top 10 in the US and Gray followed the album’s success with the recently completed ‘Lost And Found’ tour. In the UK, Foundling drew further plaudits from the likes of Q who wrote “deeper and darker…Gray is getting more interesting with each release”, whilst The Times described the album as “impeccably crafted” and the Telegraph as “rich and heartfelt”. In 2011, Gray returned with ‘Lost And Found’ his most extensive UK tour since 2008.
