    John Wilson returns with another recording for the series in which leading artists discuss the album that made them or changed them.

    Singer-songwriter David Gray talks to John Wilson about the album that catapulted him to fame in 2000; White Ladder. Featuring the hits Babylon, This Year's Love and Sail Away, the album became one of the longest-charting in UK history, spending almost three consecutive years in the UK top 100, and won Gray an Ivor Novello Award for Babylon.

    Starting out in acoustic folk music, David Gray released his first album in 1993 and spent time touring with Radiohead and the Dave Matthews Band, but it wasn’t until after the release of his fourth album White Ladder, that he began to receive worldwide attention. To date, he has sold 12 million albums worldwide. He has received a BAFTA nomination for his soundtrack on the 2004 film A Way Of Life, two Ivor Novello Awards, a Q award, two Brit nominations and a Grammy nomination.

    This will be a unique opportunity to see David Gray perform and talk about the making of a decade-defining album.
