Award winning David Gray is back with an all-new Album and for another sell-out show at the 8th Skywards Dubai International Jazz Festival on Thursday February 18th, 2010 at Dubai Media City Outdoor Amphitheater!
Due to the huge demand and the growing fan base of the UK's folk rock scene master, David Gray is hailed back for another performance expected to be a massive attraction to a huge crowd waiting for the return of this unique artist with his latest album Draw The Line and its hits that exceeded all expectations. It is a bagful of ascending real music and sensual lyrics that ultimately engages any music lover!
We received continual requests to bring back David Gray to the festival due to the huge applaud for his outstanding appearance in 2007; his fan base is constantly growing in this region as well as worldwide, and with his latest release, we are confident that his upcoming show will be another huge success", declared Anthony Younes, founder and organizer of the festival.
'Draw The Line' is the warm, fresh, organic sound of David Gray in a new, revitalized light. He had all the success in the world, and more, but he was hungry for more - not more success, but more feeling. More heart. More soul. More songs. More life. The formula had become a stale and worn one.
Hunger is a very accurate appraisal for how I feel," says David. I got to say things as a writer that I've obviously been dying to say for years. Songs like 'Nemesis', 'First Chance' and 'Draw The Line' were so liberating. Images and ideas just flowing out and a bit of humour as well, and a bit of caustic soda ground in there too, a bit of spice to the whole thing. The camera was suddenly panning everywhere. It was just a wonderful feeling. I just feel very, very alive. That's the feeling that's in 'Draw The Line"
Singer/songwriter David Gray is not one to rest on his laurels; 12 million album sales, the best selling album in Ireland ever with 'White Ladder', a BAFTA nomination for his soundtrack work on Amma Assante's 2004 film 'A Way Of Life', two Ivor Novellos, a Q award, two Brit nominations, and a Grammy nomination.
