Championed for his distinctive vocal, GRAY reveals new release 'Blue in her Bones'
Timeless and forever appealing to the ear, 'Blue in Her Bones' is the remarkable new single from singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist GRAY. Receiving love from BBC Introducing and sites across the web, Sounding like something you'd endeavour in a blockbuster movie where the protagonist is longing for something else, the new release from GRAY is best served on a silver platter.
A strong advocate for mental health and veganism, GRAY shares, “Music is a reason to live, a life-line for many people, a global language, unifier and generally just makes life sweeter and more relatable. I have historically been a bit of a lone-wolf with regard to creating. I believe in collaboration when your hearts are aligned, but creating soulless music in a too-many-cooks and no shared vision/purpose scenario is my nightmare - I truly believe that chucking out cash-grabbing, hook only songs that could have been generated by an algorithm is a crime against humanity”.
Speaking about the enchanting new release ‘Blue In Her Bones’, GRAY shares, 'Blue In Her Bones' is the most exposed track on the album, with only my voice and a spellbinding piano performance from my mate Steve Dear, which we recorded in a weekend session a few months ago. I never intended to lead with it, but after witnessing the cutting, visceral emotional reaction it aroused in some folks, I thought it must be the right one. The music you feel is most likely to help someone through something will always be the right choice to push the hardest. I think everyone knows someone who this song could be written about or for. For me it was a woman very close to me. It's about remembering that depression can morph someone you love beyond recognition; but they're still the same person, worth standing by and fighting for. If you weather the changes, and show them love through it, the sadness may just lose its grip on them and the real person within will return.”
