James Blake, an electronic music producer and singer-songwriter from London, made waves in the music industry when he debuted his eponymous album in February of 2011. Combining soulful vocals with sleek, sexy downtempo production, Blake's music is robotic without ever losing sight of humanity. His new record “Overgrown,” which features guest appearances by the RZA and Brian Eno, is his most expansive record to date and debuted at #1 on the US Dance/Electronic chart. The 24 year-old has quickly ascended to the top of the dubstep electronic dance music community—this might be his last tour in intimate theaters before he starts playing the big venues.
