iTunes Editors’ Notes

David Gray's inspirations hail at least in part from America, so it's only right that a large chunk of this British artist's stardom has come in the U.S. Scaling back the drum-'n'-bass rhythms that helped make his breakthrough White Ladder stand out, he concentrates on piano-driven arrangements that prove his songs work well without much embellishment. The American influence presents itself in a resemblance to Ryan Adams (the two could be vocal twins) and a debt to the side of the Band that Elton John drew on early in his career.

Such moments nicely represent Gray's ability to tickle the ear while pondering serious matters.
