Artist Bio
David GrayDavid 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.Those laurels, in fact, might not be an actual pain in the arse, but they certainly make him fidget."I didn't have a masterplan but I knew that I was gonna make some wholesale changes at the end of making Life In Slow Motion," the singer-songwriter says of his 2005, No.1 (seventh) studio album."I'd had a really good run, I'd built a band with some great people. But the creative spark that had been there, that [1998's] White Ladder was born out of, was sort of gone. I just felt there was a need for some new energy and a new impetus to the whole thing. I was hungry.""I wrote 'Draw The Line' in June 2007," he recalls of the song that gives his new album its title and the song, which lit the touch paper for the rest of the album.Over the next two years Gray kept up that standard. New songs galore 'lurched' from his fingers, featuring guest vocal turns from Jolie Holland and Annie Lennox. Draw The Line is the sound of an artist turning his lens, his camera, his vision outwards, providing an extrospective take on the world."Hunger is a very accurate appraisal for how I feel," he says. "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."
