David Gray & More Set for LIVE ON LETTERMAN Concert Webcasts
CBS Interactive's award-winning webcast concert series, LIVE ON LETTERMAN, presented by Xperia Lounge, will feature two Great Performances in the month of July: the multi-talented musical innovator St. Vincent and GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer-songwriter David Gray. St. Vincent and David Gray's performances will take place live from the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City and be webcast on CBS.com and Vevo, Wednesday, July 16 and Wednesday, July 30 (9:00 PM, ET/6:00 PM, PT), respectively.
St. Vincent's LIVE ON LETTERMAN performance will feature songs from her self-titled fourth album, which earned career-best reviews. St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark, has been moving at breakneck SPEED for the past few years. Her February 2014 release of St. Vincent on Loma Vista Recordings follows 2011's critically acclaimed Strange Mercy. NPR's "All Things Considered" called St. Vincent's self-titled album "dazzling," and Rolling Stone hailed it as "fantastic" and her "tightest, tensest, best set of songs to date." St. Vincent recently performed with Nirvana at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, and in 2012 released an album entitled Love This Giant with Talking Heads musician David Byrne. St. Vincent's first full-length album, Marry Me, was released in 2007.
David Gray's performance will feature songs off of his 10th studio album, Mutineers, released earlier this summer, as well as hits from his previous albums, including "Babylon" and "This Year's Love." Over the course of his career, Gray has established himself as one of the UK's leading artists both at home and overseas. His commercial success is backed up by countless accolades. His 2009 release, Draw The Line, was met with critical praise and garnered the artist a series of high-profile television appearances, as well as two sold out tours of the US. Foundling, Gray's ninth studio album, picked up where Draw the Line left off and created a new chapter of lush, soulful songs that found the artist returning to his folk music roots. The artist's appearance on LIVE ON LETTERMAN kicks off a 20+ city U.S. tour that will officially begin in Boston on August 1st.
