David Gray turned his back on the industry and self-recorded!

David Gray is an English singer-songwriter who, after many years of struggling with unsuccessful releases on different labels, ended up recording the album White Ladder in his bedroom, with only his drummer, Craig McClune helping him.

At the time Gray started the recordings for White Ladder, he was seriously considering giving up his musical career.

Life on the road had finally gotten to him and depression had started to kick in. His relationship was on the rocks and he had no money left.

This is evident in the tune Nightblindness where David sings “What are we gonna do, when the money runs out, I wish there was something left to say”. He later spoke about finding it weird that people can relate to that kind of pain.

Singles like Babylon, Please Forgive Me, Nightblindess, My Oh My, Be Mine, Sail Away, This Years Love, and Say Hello, Wave Goodbye, paired with his head-shaking singing style made him world-famous.

On the back of this success, David Gray ended up supporting Dave Matthew’s Band on tour around America. Mr. Matthew even released White Ladder on his own label.

The album earned David Gray a Grammy nomination for Album Of The Year in ’02, not bad for a bedroom recording!
