    Starting now. With David how he started studying art. Great subject. He did a painting for the first time in 20+ years. I would give a lot to see that painting!

    Sounds like we all are going to see it. It's in the video to Enter Lightly which is played live on the piano right now.

    What a beautiful beautiful song.

    Now the lovely Snow in Vegas which is always best when being done on his own.

    Smoke Without Water - wonderfully performed on the piano.

    Folkestone and Paisley. Those fights... I remember both gigs. Hilarious listening to David remembering those.


    Now David is covering Elton John's Yellow Brick Road . Lovely rendition.

    I wonder if that piano is called "the Elton John piano" because every guest is supposed to play a cover of his?

    What a great evening with lots of interesting insights. I enjoyed every minute of this.

    Wow! Great solo performance of two of his new songs! David was simply incredible! So intense! So looking forward to seeing DG at his solo shows soon!
    It's always nice to listen to David telling funny stories especially about his concerts in Folkestone and Paisley (I've been there!) and him talking about musicians he really likes, in particular when he mentions Leonard Cohen to whom I'm a bit addicted as well :)))

    You're welcome Rena :)

    For anyone who missed David on Radio 2 this evening (or who wants to listen again, as I will be!) it's available online for the next 29 days at the link below:

    Jo Whiley's shows are pretty good but if you want to skip straight to David Gray, head to 1:09:20

    Enjoy ;)
