Born in Sligo, Ireland, this brooding twenty something singer of delicately crafted etherealism has so far gathered momentum on France. His single "The Hunchback Of San Francisco" lifted from self titled debut album, won him acclaim there as did its follow up "Genevieve." His main influences are troubadours: Leonard Cohen, Scott Walker, Nick Drake and David Sylvian; whose brother Steve Jansen contributed to Blake's second album Still Life released on French label Naive last year. At the time of writing, Blake is preparing for a short tour of France, Belgium and Spain. ~ Kelvin HayesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
