Sometimes we give a party ourselves…
Due to the great support and enthousiasm of Franky Claeys, Floris van Bommel, d-club Antwerp, and Macamants we had the chance to present a showcase featuring Perry Blake.
Perry Blake (born May 10, 1970) is an Irish singer and songwriter from Sligo, known for the delicate, downtempo, melancholic style of his songs and his soft singing voice.
His 1998 self-titled debut album was very successful in the United Kingdom and won critical praise. His first single, ‘The Hunchback Of San Francisco’, also came from this album. His third album, ‘California’, was recorded with Italian producer Marco Sabiu and featured Dickon Hinchliffe of Tindersticks.
His musical influences are Leonard Cohen, David Sylvian, Scott Walker, and Nick Drake. He has collaborated with Françoise Hardy and wrote 2 songs for her award winning ‘Tant de belles choses’ album and ‘Émilie Simon’.
