DAVID GRAY Up the White Ladder


Multi-platinum, multi-Brit and Grammy-nominated British singer-songwriter DAVID GRAY has announced Australian and New Zealand legs of the White Ladder: The 20th Anniversary Tour, to celebrate the trailblazing album. Catch him at Fremantle Arts Centre on Friday, December 11.

White Ladder was born of difficult circumstances. Gray had been struggling on the margins for a decade, a lonely figure with an acoustic guitar swimming against the tide of Britpop, grunge, hip hop and electro. He came close to quitting. But instead, he asked himself if he could make a better record and write a better song.

Written and recorded on minimal budget by Gray in the bedroom of a tiny terraced house in Stoke Newington, he experimented with drum machines and electronic elements, creating a blend of folktronica that has since become a familiar part of the musical landscape.

White Ladder boasts classic hit singles Babylon, Please Forgive Me and Sail Away. The seven million record-selling White Ladder will be performed in its entirety by Gray, together with all the original band members and all the original equipment.

David Gray plays Fremantle Arts Centre on Friday, December 11. Tickets on sale Friday, March 13 from Oztix.
