NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — On the heels of a busy year, with two albums, two top 10 singles and three consecutive US tours, Grammy Award nominee David Gray will kick off his Lost and Found later tour this winter.
Beginning February 21st in Boston, the tour will be unlike anything Gray has previously done.
David is boasting a series of acoustic evenings which will center around songs from his new album, Foundling, and also include reinterpretations of songs from his entire catalogue.
David Gray has established himself as one of the UK’s leading music artists both at home and overseas.
With a career now spanning over fifteen years, David’s commercial success is also backed up by a critical consensus and countless accolades. David’s 2009 release Draw The Line was met with critical praise and garnered the artist a series of high profile television appearances, as well as two sold out tours of the US.
Foundling, Gray's ninth studio album during his 15 year career picks up where Draw the Line leaves off, creating a new chapter soulful songs that find Gray returning to his folk music roots.
USA Today reported that, ’A Moment Changes Everything’ is David’s most infectious single since 2000's ‘Babylon’.
“The 'Lost and Found' tour embodies more than just an opportunity to play some of the quieter, more intimate songs,” said David. “It will provide a long anticipated platform for a completely different approach. In terms of the way that the sound of the music is captured and presented, it will be more like a recording session than a gig in many ways,” David continued.
The tour will cover 12 cities before wrapping in San Diego, CA on March 9th.
“Acoustic instruments will be mic’d up for their real sound, rather than going for the usual pick-up sound, and as a result volume levels both for the band and the audience will have to be kept much lower than at your average 'rock' show. Hopefully the sonic results will be more than worth the sacrifice of a few decibels. Essentially the 'Lost and Found' show will be a listening experience,” David concluded.
