Foundling

Genre: Pop; Lead Performer: David Gray (Musician); Status: In Season

David Gray’s best known for ”Babylon,” ? a chilled-?chardonnay folk-pop hit so lovely and British, it charmed Prince Charles. Since then, the singer-songwriter’s profile has gotten more ? modest, and that average-bloke vibe suits him as he trades electro-acoustic filigree for a rootsier sound. Carried by his gruff voice, Foundling’s all warm arrangements and real emotion. There’s no ”Babylon” here — and he doesn’t need one. B+
