David Gray Live on KCRW 9.1.2014 Set List
Earlier this week, David Gray stopped by KCRW to perform a few songs off his new record, Mutineers, as well as his hit "Babylon" and the unreleased track "Laughing Gas."
Between playing tunes from his latest record, the singer-songwriter discussed the challenges in making the album. Gray worked with producer Andy Barlow, best known for playing in the electronic band Lamb. David discussed how the producer pushed him out of his comfort zone and encouraged to him to experiment with the record. Gray compared his experience of making the album to Robert Frost's renowned poem "The Road Not Taken."
Gray's raspy vocals prove to be as strong as they were over ten years ago when he released his first record, A Century Ends. One can hear some differences in his new music with its more melancholy tone, but Gray continues to stay true to his acoustic style.
