Biography

Growing up in coastal Wales, before a move to Liverpool where he attended university, folksy lyricist David Gray was making music long before he entered the public consciousness, touring widely and gathering a devoted army of fans throughout the 1990s. The singer released three albums and worked alongside two different labels before eventually going it alone in 1998.

His breakthrough finally came in the wake of the decision to self-finance his fourth album, and the gamble paid off. Celebrating his independence and embracing his acoustic edge, Gray's 'White Ladder' burst into the charts in 1999, spawning such memorable tracks as 'Babylon' and 'This Year's Love'. Following a successful appearance on the main stage at Glastonbury, the album soon went multi-platinum and hit number one on the UK Albums Chart.

Fresh from a three-year break from the limelight, further albums have since followed though none have yet matched the halcyon days of 'White Ladder'. 'Draw the Line', released in 2009, saw collaborations with Annie Lennox and folksy US recording artist Jolie Holland. He released 'Foundling' in 2010 before taking another break. After signing a deal with Kobalt Label Services, he released 'Mutineers', his first album in four years, before embarking on a small UK tour. He compiled 'The Best of David Gray' for 2016 followed by 'Gold in a Brass Age' in 2019.
