Craig Ashley David 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 five further 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.


"I wanted to write something about my experience of being bullied on the first album but it happened when I was 15 and I wrote the album at 18 so I was still a bit too close to it. I felt more confident this time. I don’t want to preach about it because I haven’t got the answer to bullying – it’s a problem that’s going to go on for generations to come because it’s in the psyche of people who are insecure about something and can’t deal with it. They force the yin yang they have in their heads on to another person. They put their problems on to someone else and make them deal with it. It’s only now that I look back and I realise how badly bullied I was. When you wake up every day thinking how you’re going to get to school without being beaten up, you begin to realise how bad the situation is. I wanted to say I’ve experienced bullying like anyone else and show people who might be going through the same thing that it doesn’t have to affect you. They can think: ‘He was bullied and he’s not doing too badly.’ I want to put some positive meaning on to what I experienced.
