David Gray’s first album, A Century Ends, was released in 1993, followed by Flesh in 1994. After touring with the likes of Radiohead and the Dave Matthews Band in support of his third album Sell, Sell, Sell, Gray decided to self-finance his fourth album, White Ladder, and release it on his own label, IHT Records, in 1998.
As his success grew, he released a pair of compilations (Lost Songs 95-98 and The EP’s 92-94) and reissued A Century Ends and Flesh. A New Day at Midnight followed up his successful international breakthrough in the fall of 2002 and 2005’s Life in Slow Motion debuted at the top of the charts in both Ireland and the UK. In 2007, he released Shine: The Best of the Early Years followed by Greatest Hits. Most recently, Gray released Draw The Line in 2009, Foundling in 2010 and Mutineers in 2014. In 2016, The Best Of David Gray came out in a standard and deluxe format.
During the span of his career, he has had 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.
