David Gray is an English indie rock singer-songwriter. Gray released his first studio album in 1993 and received worldwide attention after the release of White Ladder six years later. It was the first of three UK chart-toppers in six years for Gray, the latter two of which also made the Top 17 in the US. He has been nominated for four Brit Awards – twice for Best British Male
On 19 September 2009, Gray performed his self-proclaimed first pool-side concert at the Rooftop Pool at The Colonnade Hotel in Boston for the Mix 104.1 End of Summer Bash. Gray performed songs from the new album, including “Fugitive,” “Draw the Line,” and “Jackdaw.”
In an interview for an issue of Hot Press released on 3 December 2009, Gray revealed to Jackie Hayden that he was working on his next album, Foundling. Gray also revealed that one of the tracks will be called “The Old Chair.” According to Gray, “It features just a drum kit and me on my Steinway piano. It’s very quiet.”
Originally, Foundling was to be released on 14 September 2010 in the United States. In an interview with the Miami Herald, Gray reiterated that it would be released in September 2010. However, it was released in the UK on 16 August 2010 and in the US on 17 August. Foundling is a double album: the first CD consists of eleven new songs and the second bonus CD consists of eight previously unreleased songs. A ninth previously unreleased song is included when Foundling is ordered through iTunes.
David Gray inked a global agreement with Kobalt Label Services for the release of his new studio album “Mutineers. “We’ve been in conversation with Kobalt over the past year and as the record came together so has their team around the world,” notes Gray’s manager Rob Holden. “We’ve seen the success they have had with their releases and are excited to partner with them for what promises to be an exhilarating new phase for IHT and David Gray.“ “Mutineers,” Gray’s 10th studio album and his first in four years, was recorded at The Church Studios in London and produced by Andy Barlow (Lamb). It was released on June 17, 2014. Gray will support the new release with a North American tour through April and May, followed by an eight-date headline U.K. tour in June and July which includes a show at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
