David Gray is a versatile and creative musician who has performed across Europe, the USA and Australasia

David has established himself as an extremely versatile and creative musician over a vast array of genres, equally at home with arranging music and performing.

He studied piano at the Royal Academy of Music on full scholarships from 2008 to 2015 with Hamish Milne. During this time David received numerous prizes and scholarships including the Patrons' Award and the Walter Macfarren Gold Medal.

Along with piano, a large part of his career comprised performances on symphonic and theatre pipe organs, mainly as a transcription artist. Although he stopped regularly playing organs in early 2020 to turn his focus elsewhere, David is preparing to complete a long-term project of the first professional recording on the largest musical instrument ever built, in Atlantic City, New Jersey (USA).

During the pandemic David found himself playing jazz music and many other genres and since then he has played hundreds of jazz shows with many of London's finest musicians.

His proclivity for improvisation leads him occasionally into the field of silent film accompaniment. He studied this art with with many of the finest exponents including Neil Brand at the Academy, and has performed at the Pordenone film festival in Italy along with other halls and theatres in the UK and USA.

From 2020-2023 David also served as an Artistic Director of the Temple of Art and Music, a chain of venues which he helped build in London. His most recent projects, aimed at new audiences and recording methods, has involved combining piano, electronics and sound production. This has led to some revolutionary performances in the realisation of piano repertoire and sound dispersal in specific environments.
