David Grey never ceases to amaze me with the new directions he’s exploring. Grey is a Graphic Design Department Chair at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design and has also designed everything on my own label, Palette Recordings, for the last seven years, as well as my last two full lengths on Kompakt.
