With more than two decades of songwriting and ten studio albums under his belt, English singer-songwriter David Gray is still going strong and touring to support his newest effort, 2014's Mutineers. The tour will make a stop in Philly at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts on June 19. Gray will be performing a joint show with Philly folk artist Amos Lee.
Although three of his albums have reached #1 on the charts, Gray experienced phenomenal commercial success with the release of his fourth album, 1998's White Ladder. His expansive career since then has seen him shift from primarily acoustic-guitar oriented folk music to more of an indie rock sound, with computer-generated music accompanying his voice and acoustic instrumentation. On his new Mutineers, Gray addresses a need to surprise himself, not just in terms of how he works, but the ideas that drive him and the people he has worked with.
