David Gray played one of his first-ever Irish gigs in Galway, and enjoyed immense success in Ireland for years before the rest of the world caught up with him. In Ireland his 1998 album White Ladder remains the best selling album of all time. His commercial success is backed up by a critical consensus that has earned him numerous Brit Award and Grammy Award nominations and two Ivor Novello Awards for song writing.
His most recent album Life in Slow Motion was released to huge critical and commercial success late last year. With his brooding and introspective lyrics delivered in his distinctive white soul voice, Gray's simple accoustic-frinted songs and unique live performances have earned him a huge following all over the world.
