Thanks to Colin Murnane for this great shot at the National Concert Hall in Dublin
3 years ago, I played at SXSW in Austin Texas.  Between shows I had been invited by the boss of my ex-label Beggars Banquet (Martin Mills) to attend the performance for one of his 4AD bands.  They were performing out in the open with the audience all seated on the grassy hillside. After the show, my wife Clare and I went for a beer at another section of the field which was cordoned off for the festival.  We stood drinking the beer next to a packed Marquee where there was a performance going on.  My ears cocked up at the thick fruity organ sound and soulful vocal emanating from it.  I went over closer, and there was this guy sitting at the keys backed by electric guitar and percussion - I fell in love with the sound instantly and had to know who it was.  Later I discovered it was James Blake.  When I found him on YouTube the first track (his most popular, and commercial one) I heard didn't sound like what I had heard that day to me.  But then I found his "Live at the BBC" tracks and there it was again, that magical deep brooding rich quality - my favourite track was "The Willhelm Scream". I often just jam on it to warm my heart, there are very few words, so it wasn't hard.  I hope you like it, that's Albert the cat over in the corner, I just did this yesterday in Wexford. I hope you like it.

Thanks again for your Pledges of support for my new album. If you can help, I'd really appreciate it - the new album can be yours for as little as $10, with some cool exclusives if you're able to dig deeper. Just click on the link below.
