Biography

To this date he has released three studio albums "Born To Do It", "Slicker Than Your Average" and "The Story Goes..." with a fourth studio album "Trust Me" awaiting release.

Craig David was born in Holyrood, Southampton, Hampshire to a Grenadian father and a Jewish-English mother and attended Bellemoor School.

His earliest exposure to recording came when he worked on a B-side to British R&B group Damage's cover of the Eric Clapton song Wonderful Tonight. He then started doing vocals for a few tracks with garage act The Artful Dodger, of which the song "Rewind", released off the Artful Dodger album It's All About the Stragglers, hit #2 on the UK charts in 2000, spending seventeen weeks in the top 75 and paving the way for a solo career. His first single, "7 Days", made him the youngest solo male artist to reach #1 in the UK (he was nineteen at the time). This was the first of a string of four top ten singles from his debut album, Born To Do It, which was released the same year and hit #1, going on to sell 1.8 million copies.

The success of his debut, which was written almost entirely by Craig David and Mark Hill of The Artful Dodger, led to the US release of "Fill Me In" in May 2001, where it reached # 15 on the Billboard Hot 100. Born To Do It was released in the US on July 17, 2001, peaking at #11 on the Billboard 200 and reaching platinum status, selling 1 million copies. "7 Days" reached the top ten in the US, although "Walking Away", which had reached the top three in the UK and the top five in Australia, missed the top forty in the US and was the last of his singles to chart there.

The follow-up album, Slicker Than Your Average, was released in 2002 and fared considerably less well than the debut. None of the six singles released from the album charted in the US. Although both "What's Your Flava" and "Rise and Fall" received airplay on both the Urban contemporary and/or Soft AC formats, they did not make the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles and Tracks chart or the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart. However, "What's Your Flava" made the Rhythmic Top 40 (#32), Top 40 Mainstream (#24) and the Top 40 Tracks peaking at #37. The albums' first four continued his streak of top ten hits in the UK, bringing his total to nine consecutive top ten hits until "World Filled With Love" hit #15 in 2003.

David signed on with Warner Music and put together his third album, The Story Goes..., which was released around the world in August 2005.

The first single, "All The Way", returned him to the top three, and the second single, "Don't Love You No More (I'm Sorry)", tied with "7 Days" as his longest running single in the charts since "Rewind", spending 15 weeks inside the UK top 75. The album's third single, "Unbelievable", debuted at #18 in March 2006.

David appeared on Live From Abbey Road on Channel 4 in the UK and the Sundance Channel in the USA. His performance at the studios took place on August 1st 2006.

He has recently collaborated with UK Rapper Kano on his upcoming album London Town for the single This Is The Girl. The single was released on August 27, 2007 and debuted at #18 in the UK Charts.

Craig's new single, "Hot Stuff" will be released 5th November 2007 and is the first single from the upcoming album "Trust Me" which is available to buy on 12 November 2007.
