Craig Ashley David (born 5 May 1981) is an English singer-songwriter who rose to fame in 1999 featuring on the single “Re-Rewind” by Artful Dodger. David’s debut album, Born to Do It, was released on 14 August 2000, after which he has since released a further five studio albums and worked with a variety of artists such as Tinchy Stryder, Kano, Jay Sean, Rita Ora and Sting.
David has been nominated for twelve Brit Awards: three times for Best British Male, and twice received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.
Wildstar Records first became aware of David when the artist’s then manager Paul Widger met the label’s co-owner Colin Lester and played some of his music. Lester later told HitQuarters that he was particularly impressed by the first song he heard, “Walking Away”, saying “That was an absolute stand out … It struck me that any seventeen year-old that could write a song like this had huge potential.”The Wildstar boss was further won over when, on later visiting the artist’s home in Southampton, he found that David’s tiny bedroom stacked from floor to ceiling with 12” vinyl records, commenting: “That convinced me he was the real deal and not just some kid acting out the part.”At that point Lester offered him a development deal with his label. When Lester later heard the song “7 Days”, he said he immediately heard a number-one record and promoted the contract to an album deal the same day.
