Singer David Gray has sold close to 12 million albums since he first began his musical climb, and with his folk music feel and aesthetic for the blues, he has become quite a respected tunesmith.

Gray spoke to CNN about his new album “Foundling” as well as the state of the music industry and even squeezed a few fan questions sent via Twitter.

Did he get to yours? Read on to find out.

    David doesn't seem to crave "being heard of" by everyone on planet Earth (or distant galaxies), but his music is absolutely phenomenal. I've seen him 3 times in concert...and after the last at the Murat Theatre in Indianapolis he came out after the show and signed autographs and posed for pictures for all who wanted them. Very patient and generous with his time. He's bigger in the UK than the US, but once you "discover" him it's hard to ignore him.
    Jessica: If you like White Ladder (and I do!) you'll enjoy the "Life In Slow Motion" CD as well. "Draw The Line" is also good, but WL and LISM are at the top of my list.

    @galaxy: David Gray sang the huge hit song "Babylon" about 8 or so years ago.

    Here's the link to the video.

    I love this artist. I've loved his songs for a long time but finally bought one of his cds. White Ladder has taken up near permanent residence in my cd player.

    12million albums? And I still have never heard of this guy.
    but I live in a hole, so what else is new?
    The Marquee is a sad little blog.
    bye-bye sad little blog. I hope you grow up someday.
    then we can have s-x.
