DAVID TO PERFORM AT THE 18th ANNUAL NOBEL PEACE PRIZE CONCERT
Thursday, October 20, 2011
It has been announced that David Gray will be joining Sugarland, Jill Scott, Janelle Monáe, Matthew Morrison, Ellie Goulding, Bernhoft and World Youth Choir to perform at the 18th annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert on Sunday, December 11, in Oslo, Norway at the Oslo Spektrum arena.
This year’s Nobel Peace Prize Concert will honor laureates Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee and Tawakkul Karman, for what the Norwegian Nobel Committee calls “their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work." The award is given annually to an individual or organization whose work exemplifies a spirit of hope and leadership that will help promote peace in the world. The Concert is presented by the Nobel Peace Prize Concert AS and broadcast to a global audience.
“We’re very pleased these talented artists will join us for another memorable Nobel Peace Prize Concert,” said Geir Lundestad, Secretary of the Norwegian Nobel Committee. “This event is an extremely powerful way to celebrate peace through music and also make new audiences aware of the significant contributions of the Nobel laureates.”
Tickets for the Nobel Peace Prize Concert will go on sale Thursday, October 20, at the Oslo Spektrum box office and via OsloSpektrum.no
The Nobel Peace Prize is the most prestigious award in the world, honoring icons such as Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Mikhail Gorbachev, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Barack Obama, Kofi Annan, Al Gore and other remarkable individuals and organizations. For the past seventeen years, the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony has been followed the next day by the Nobel Peace Prize Concert, a musical celebration honoring the laureate.
Cisco is the global sponsor of the Nobel Peace Prize Concert. The Concert is presented by the Nobel Peace Prize Concert AS and is produced by IMG, in cooperation with Eyeworks Dinamo and NRK.
"Cisco is very proud to be the global sponsor of the Nobel Peace Prize Concert for the eleventh year," said Simon Willis, Vice President, Internet Business Solutions Group, Cisco. "Our continued involvement in this event reflects Cisco's aim to help individuals, companies and countries use the internet to collaborate, educate, empower and further the ideals and innovations inspired by Alfred Nobel and his legacy."

David to perform benefit concert September 24
Thursday, August 18, 2011
David will be performing solo at a benefit concert for his bass player, Robbie Malone's former band, Lir on Saturday, September 24, at Vicar Street in Dublin, Ireland. The event will look to raise funds for the Irish band's impending court case. Also performing will be Lir and Pugwash. To purchase tickets please visit Ticketmaster.ie and also take a moment to check out David's message below:
I have known Robbie Malone of Lir ever since he joined my band in 1999. Through all that time I have watched from the sidelines as his ex-managers law-suit has dragged on year in year out, blighting both his life, and the lives of all the other Lir band members. A date has finally been set in November for the case to be heard in the High Court in Dublin which will hopefully put an end to the whole farcical affair once and for all. Solicitors cost money, barristers cost money, justice, it seems, costs money, so the idea of the gig is to celebrate the bands music, have some fun, and with luck, raise some much needed funds in the process. Count me in.

David Gray, Reviewed by The Guardian
Wednesday, June 01, 2011
It's music season at The Guardian and they've posted a review about our man David and his latest tour. Can you imagine if he played all 156 song suggestions? Well, we can dream!
Check out the full article below, or at Guardian.co.uk.
David Gray – review
By Dave Simpson
David Gray reveals that, before his latest tour, he asked fans which songs they would like to hear. "There were 156 suggestions," he chuckles. "One of them was Frankie Goes to Hollywood's Relax." He doesn't play that, but top of fans' wishlists were songs from White Ladder, the album that made Gray a worldwide star in 2000. As long as he gives his still-sizable following a bit of what they want, he can do as he pleases.
That means exploring his recent Foundling album and extensive back catalogue backed by a largely acoustic band that includes cello, double bass and zither, which gives his untamed bellow and offbeat humour room to roam. "When the electricity runs out and the synthesiser is no more, this medieval ***'s gonna be where it's at," he grins. His tie is done up so tight it's strangling him, his leg is pumping out some imaginary rhythm, and when his violinist tumbles over, he quips about a showbusiness "dignified exit".
And yet, mainstream ubiquity has clearly scarred Gray, and he talks of not always writing songs from inspiration, before delivering one that was – the sublime love song, Falling Free. His records no longer sell millions, but he has gained an intensity worthy of Van Morrison or Mike Scott. "Music is a heavy thing, it takes you to another place," he muses before 2009's extraordinary Nemesis. The hits appear – he reveals that Babylon's snapshot of a wild night was written in Stoke Newington, London – but newer songs have won at least one ardent admirer.
"Beeeee mine, David!" yells a gruff male voice after the raging, anthemic Fugitive. "A flattering offer," grins Gray. "I'll contemplate it and give you a reply by email."

David Revisits Solva on ITV Wales
Friday, March 04, 2011
David will be taking a trip down memory lane in the new ITV Wales series, Time of your Life, on Friday, March 4.
The singer-songwriter moved from Manchester to Lower Solva when he was eight, spending his formative schooldays at Solva Community School and later Ysgol Dewi Sant in St. Davids.
The episode follows him as he revisits the area, as well as his favourite old haunts in the village and along the Pembrokeshire coast.
I remember like yesterday the day we moved from Manchester to a tiny cottage tucked under a hill in Lower Solva. There was a picturesque fishing harbour outside the door, a bluebell wood behind: I was eight, and I thought, 'This is Action Man heaven.'
The episode was filmed in the autumn, and Associate Producer Alun Jones said Gray enjoyed his trip back home.
The village has obviously changed a lot since David was a boy, but that didn't seem to matter one bit, the countryside, the sea, the wildlife and the people are what made this his home and in that sense it was like he had never been away.
Time of your Life has already profiled Nerys Hughes, Rhodri Morgan, Colin Jackson, Sian Lloyd, and Gareth Edwards.
David's episode airs tonight, Friday, March 4 at 8 pm on ITV 1 Wales and 9 pm on ITV 1 + 1 in Wales and The Westcountry. You will also be able to view the broadcast episodes online.

Message from David
Monday, January 10, 2011
David wants to share with you some of the ideas and visions behind this tour as well give you the chance to contribute your ideas to the setlist. Check it out!
The 'Lost and Found' Tour
The 'Lost and Found' tour embodies more than just an opportunity to play some of the quieter, more intimate songs not only from 'Foundling', but from across my catalogue, it also provides 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. Acoustic instruments will be miced 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.
Something else that will be different, will be the close proximity of all the musicians involved. I am imagining a very tight knit group on stage, which will involve cello, double bass, piano, guitar, melodica, drums and harmonium, and in which the musicians will be free to move from instrument to instrument during songs. A more reactive environment, in which subtle changes of mood, tempo and dynamics can be responded to instantly and instinctively by everyone involved.
Performing very quiet and delicate songs on a big stage, it often feels like you are battling against the distance between each other. My fantasy is for a situation onstage in which the bonds of musicianship are so tight and so close, that moving with the current of the music is like flying with a flock of birds, or swimming with a shoal of fish; where sudden and dramatic changes of direction are possible even though the signals that summon them are barely perceptible.
My idea for the set, is that it will centre around the songs from 'Foundling', but will also include reinterpretations of songs both large and small from across all my albums, with maybe a few surprises thrown in for good measure.
While on the subject of the setlist, the spirit of festive generosity is clearly still in the air. Bearing in mind that rehearsals haven't started yet, if there is any particular song of mine that you think has been languishing on the sidelines for too long and would dearly love to hear, then drop me a line at help@DavidGray.com quick sharp, and I'll see what I can do about getting a new version together.
See you all soon,
Lost and Found Tour + Presales!
