Hot off the heels of his sold out "Lost and Found" tour, David Gray is excited to continue the momentum by jumping on the road again with a fresh series of dates across the US this summer. Gray will bring back his signature acoustic sound, but infuse that with a new energy cultivated during the "Lost and Found" series he brought fans this past winter. A very intimate set of acoustic evenings, the series centered around songs from his ninth studio album Foundling and also included reinterpretations of songs from his entire catalogue. Released last year, the album notched a #9 debut on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart, marking it the highest chart position of his career. Entertainment Weekly describes it as "all warm arrangements and real emotion,"while USA Today says " 'A Moment Changes Everything' is his most infectious single since 2000's 'Babylon. ' " 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. His 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 9th studio album, picks up where Draw the Line leaves off, creating a new chapter of lush, soulful songs that find Gray returning to his folk music roots. Joining David Gray on tour is Lisa O'Neill.
