It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since British singer/songwriter Craig David released his debut album Born To Do It. To me, that album is still one of the best UK albums of the last ten years, if not the best. It really set the bar when it came to fresh new ‘urban’ artists making music from the heart, and not trying to fit into the generic pop formula. Gems such as Fill Me In, 7 Days, Walking Away and Rendezvous sound just as invigorating as when they first came out, with the videos just as memorable!
Southampton-born Craig burst unto the mainstream music scene in 1999 appearing on the Artful Dodger single Rewind. Now, just over ten years later he is releasing his fifth album Signed Sealed Delivered, which features a selection of cover songs from the legendary Motown stable, such as current single One More Lie (Standing in the Shadows), the chorus of which samples The Four Tops’ 1967 Motown classic Standing In The Shadows Of Love.
We were recently invited into the star’s humble (well, if humble means swanky London pad) to chat about his new LP, his past music AND of course his old school memories….. Peep below for the exclusive interview.
