William Gray was a founding member of The Smokestacks, who, despite national tours, BBC live sessions, radio airplay, two single releases and major label interest, disbanded in 2008 having never officially released an album.
May 2009 saw Gray’s first solo outing None of the Above. Reaction was extremely positive with reviewers drawing favorable comparisons with respected and renowned songwriters like Elliott Smith, Bon Iver, Badly Drawn Boy and Damon Albarn.
In 2015 Gray joined the roster of artists at Medic Independent Records, with the Hangzhou (China) label.
2016 has seen the release of new album Flounce back in March and EP Seine scheduled for an October 1st release.
Seine is underpinned by acoustic guitar and a more traditional approach to writing with overall sound somewhat lo-fi, with tinges of electronica and psychedelia.
