Nashville, TN (February 22, 2011) —– Jason Gray is definitely one of the busiest touring acts in the business, as he recently finished the Winterblast Tour and will be joining Mark Schultz as a special guest on the upcoming acoustic 2011 Renaissance Tour. The show also features violinist David Klinkenberg. Gray will perform songs from his current CD, Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue which includes both his latest hits: “I Am New,” currently #11 at AC radio and his #4 song, “More Like Falling In Love.” The 19-city tour will launch in Evansville, IN on March 10th and concludes in Missouri on April 11th.

“I’ve had a few occasions to see Mark Schultz in his element and have always admired the care and attention he gives his audience – the way he connects and makes them feel loved,” says Jason Gray. “I’m grateful to get to tour with an artist who has not only written some of Christian music’s most beloved songs but who also makes loving his audience such a priority.”
Besides keeping a heavy tour schedule, Gray has been busy writing with fellow songwriters Jason Ingram, Seth Mosley (Me In Motion) and Ben Glover in preparation for his new studio project. Gray heads into the studio March 1st with long-time producer, Jason Ingram, for a project that will be released on Centricity Music, September 13, 2011.
In the meantime, Gray will treat his fans to an innovative project…“Song Cycles,” a special digital release will be available late spring. It features 4 different versions of 4 songs: work tape, demo, master and a remix of the songs by artist, Derek Webb. Three of the songs are from Gray’s current project, Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue and one from All The Lovely Losers. These versions give fans a behind-the-scenes trail of the recording process. It shows the progression of a song from the artist’s work tape, to the demo before heading into the studio and then on to the completed song after it’s been mastered. Having Derek Webb put his special touch on remixing the songs is a special element that Gray wanted to include for his faithful fans.
