James Blake became known as a bedroom producer back in 2009 and has since skyrocketed to both critical and public acclaim. Blake has proven himself as not only an innovative electronic producer with tracks like “The Bells Sketch,” he’s also shown that he’s more than capable of belting out heartfelt tunes like “I Never Learnt to Share.” The wise-beyond-his-years musician stands out with his classically-trained vocals, luscious compositions, and experimental leanings. And with Los Angeles-based musician Nosaj Thing opening at his show next week, well, this is something you'd better not miss.
