Twenty-two-year old Blake performed his electronic dubstep piano tunes at the Oran Mor venue to an upbeat young crowd.
Blake had an easy warm charm which gave him a relaxed fun rapport as he looked over to the packed crowd.
He sang songs from his debut album released in February 2011 and performed his single 'Limit To Your Love' - a song by Canadian singer songwriter Feist, which had disquieting pauses and thudding sub-bass. Another song echoed the refrain 'I'm Falling...' His music created disjointed tempos with unexpected twists; sometimes mournful and haunting, other times pensive and warm.
His songs are edgy melodramatic songs that leave emotional questioning spaces. He has a powerful voice that is an assured instrument - that cracks and reached deep places yet soothes and soars. It is hard to categorise his multi-layered music. Perhaps post-modern and minimalist in the style of The XX - his sound is totally now and of the moment. Blake has been receiving strong industry backing and good reviews.
