Craig David: I Opened The Door For A Lot Of UK Artists

talked with ITN about his new record ‘Signed Sealed Delivered’, an album sampling hits from the Motown era, and says he helped paved the way for a whole generation of urban music stars in the UK. “I felt I have confirmation I can write hit songs,” Craig said. “I know that, and I will write more hit songs in my career. This record was more about can you vocally step up and sing a song like ‘For Once In My Life’ by Stevie Wonder, and carry it. Because I think there’s not many vocalists in the world that can really carry a Stevie Wonder performance. So I hope I’ve done that justice. Then there will be new material with some interesting styles to it. I’m 28 years old. I came from a scene and opened doors for a lot of the artists that are coming through now. Taio Cruz, the Jay Sean’s, Dizzee Rascal, Wiley, Chipmunk, all these people were from the same era and place that I started off with in the Artful Dodger, so I’m excited about the new music coming out as well.” Watch the comments via YouTube below.
