Anybody know very much about this guy? I know his most famous album White Ladder but that is all. The most famous song from the album, in case anyone is interested is called Babylon:

Yeah I remember him, gosh that album and song came out what in 2000? I was barely in high school. There was another single off that album I liked, it went something like "Please Forgive For Acting A Little Strange", that could or could not be the title.

After "White Ladder" the British lad was not heard of as far as I can remember. Call me crazy but upon first listen I thought "Babylon" was Tracy Chapman.

I heard this interview (http://www.wfuv.org/audio/archives/fuv-live/david-gray-fuv-live-2014) on WFUV last year. It's the second one down, Listen. Back In The World, last one on that page was getting some air play recently.

A couple of catchy-to-me songs I heard on the radio are 2009's Fugitive (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utLCu-Mpnqo) and Stella The Artist (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hN7JMu4J-Hk)

don't ask

I remember I quite liked The One I Love (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZa0NezLtLU&index=9&list=PLBCFF47644F5342AB) when I first heard it. Later, when I really listened to the lyrics, I discovered what it was about, it was like a movie contained within a song. Very clever.
