Free At Noon

Join us for the Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as David Gray performs a live midday concert on Friday.



With more than two decades of songwriting and ten studio albums under his belt, English singer-songwriter David Gray is still going strong and touring to support his newest effort, 2014's Mutineers. The tour will make a stop in Philly at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts on June 19. Gray will be performing a joint show with Philly folk artist Amos Lee.

Although three of his albums have reached #1 on the charts, Gray experienced phenomenal commercial success with the release of his fourth album, 1998's White Ladder. His expansive career since then has seen him shift from primarily acoustic-guitar oriented folk music to more of an indie rock sound, with computer-generated music accompanying his voice and acoustic instrumentation. On his new Mutineers, Gray addresses a need to surprise himself, not just in terms of how he works, but the ideas that drive him and the people he has worked with.

Join us at World Cafe Live for a Free At Noon concert featuring David Gray by RSVPing at XPN.org; you can also tune in at 88.5 FM or XPN.org.
