David Gray is a great singer-songwriter from England. David Gray released his first album in 1993 and has released 8 albums since, including 3 that reached the top of the UK charts, and 3 that cracked the top 20 in the US.
David Gray did one of my favorite covers a few years ago for BBC Radio 1′s Live Lounge. He did a great acoustic cover of “Smile Like You Mean It” by The Killers. David Gray’s voice is so powerful, yet soothing. David Gray takes the rock song and strips it, allowing his voice and guitar to carry the song, and he does it well. After hearing the cover, it is almost difficult to remember what The Killers’ version sounds like, David took the song and added his stamp to it.
