There are not many singer-songwriters as intriguing as James Blake. At the time of his breakthrough, five years ago, the Londoner had already performed at the North Sea Jazz Festival but he will return this year. His self-titled debut record was highly acclaimed, its follow-up Overgrown garnered him the Mercury Music Prize and a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. On the eve of the rounding-off of his third studio album, Radio Silence, he will start touring again. Every so often he gives us online glimpses of this latest album, like his recent rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s The Sound Of Silence. And this makes us glad, because everything that makes his music so special is still there: his heavenly, almost androgynous vocals, wonderful piano playing, the perfect amalgam of organic and digital elements and crisp production.
