Music in the Age of COVID-19, with David Gray and Rosamund Urwin

Intelligence Squared

In this week's episode acclaimed singer/songwriter David Gray speaks to Rosamund Urwin about how music and the arts have fared throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. David had originally planned to spend 2020 embarking on a huge string of 'White Ladder' anniversary shows to mark 20 years since the release of his breakthrough multi-million selling album. When these arena dates - like so many other live shows - were rescheduled due to the pandemic, David chose instead to finish a record he had recorded prior to lockdown at Edwyn Collins’ Helmsdale studio on the Sutherland coast. Entitled ’Skellig’, The title comes from the story of Skellig - a formation of precipitous rocky islands off the coast of Co. Kerry, the most westerly point in Ireland. Ravaged by the Atlantic, the seemingly un-inhabitable location of Skellig Michael became an unlikely site of pilgrimage in 600AD for a group of monks, who believed that leading such a merciful existence, they would leave the distraction of the human realm to be ultimately closer to God.You can stream 'Skellig' in full from here: http://bit.ly/DavidGraySkellig Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/intelligencesquared.See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

DAVID GRAY & creating a visual language for Finisterre


My guest for this Episode is David Gray who is the Head of Creative for Finisterre, a pioneering outdoor brand inspired by a love of the ocean and anchored in exceptional product. We take a deep dive into David's humble roots as a young and ambitious photographer and graphic designer who swapped the big city life for coastal living, where he made his mark as chief creative for Finisterre. Since joining the team in 2006, the brand has matured into a leading cold water surf and adventure brand with strong core values of sustainability and community. It was their shooting campaigns of vagabond coastal living and surf adventure photos that really attracted me to the brand and to David's own personal photographic style. I really enjoyed our chat and there are lots of great pieces of advice for photographers, graphic designers and anyone looking to build their own brand. Hope you enjoy!
