Twenty-one years since his first studio album, David Gray's most recent album "Mutineers," finds the singer-songwriter steering into unfamiliar territory while cultivating a critical but respectful relationship with his own history.
David's past includes the phenomenal success of "White Ladder" (seven million copies sold), one of three UK number one albums, with records that became universally known and others that needed to be sought out to be heard.
Shifting from his direct and powerful voice to a softer tone, Gray’s tenth album is inspired more in the neighborhood of John Martyn’s “Small Hours” rather than its predecessors in his own catalogue. As well as the change in tone, there's a rising sense throughout the record of an artist liberated from even his own expectations.
David takes the stage in varying cities across the Southwest this fall. His shift in style and reconnection with an earlier dream will surely produce memorable performances from the seasoned musician.
