Elliot John Gleave (20 June 1982, London), better known by his stage name Example, is an English singer and rapper signed to Data Records. His name arose due to his initials being E.G., which is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase "exempli gratia", which means, "for example".

Example's third album Playing In The Shadows was released on 4 September 2011. The album debuted at number 1 on the UK Album Charts with two number 1 singles.

Elliot Gleave was born at West London Hospital, Hammersmith, the elder of two children, and attended All Saints Primary School in Fulham. He later went on to attend ADT College (now Ashcroft Technology Academy) in Wandsworth. Gleave has claimed in interviews that the main reason he started rapping was due to his introduction to hip-hop through albums by Wu-Tang Clan and Snoop Dogg

The latter's album purchased primarily for "the cool cover art". Aged 12, he entered his first rap battle at a house party in Shepherds Bush and in his own words "completely destroyed a useless wanker and a fight broke out so sprinted home".

In 1992, he won the Royal Mail 'Poet of the Year', winning his school a new computer. In 2000, Elliot attended Royal Holloway College, London to study film directing. While at university, he started garage MCing to make some money. It was during this period that he met Joseph Revell, AKA Rusher, the producer whom he would later go on to work with. Gleave and Gardner made a concept album in the audio booth of the University film department which included the track that would go on to be Example's first white-label vinyl release, "A Pointless Song".
