David Gray comes back to town in support of his new album, Mutineers, joining us this Friday for XPN's Free At Noon concert. Mutineers is latest in a long list of consistently great music released by Gray, whose first album, A Century Ends, was released in 1993. Since then, the past 21 years have been a whirlwind for UK-born Gray, releasing new music and touring virtually nonstop. He's amassed 10 albums of fantastic music – including 1998’s White Ladder and it’s hit single “Babylon." Hear some of it at XPN's Free At Noon this Friday, and see David Gray when he returns to Philadelphia for a headlining show at The Tower Theater on August 5th. Tickets are available here.
