James Blake – Music Hall of Williamsburg

British producer phenom James Blake made his highly anticipated US live debut at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The big question was how would Blake’s glitchy, sparse songs translate live? Short answer: unbelievably well.

Photographer’s Notes

I’ve avoided shooting in Music Hall of Williamsburg because I know it’s almost always dark as a dungeon. I was willing to make an exception for James Blake because I really dig his album and was very interested to see how his songs would translate live. This was also a special occasion since it was his US live debut. It’s incredible to witness his intricate productions reproduced live with only a couple of keyboards, samplers, vocal loops, drums and guitar. It was deceptively simple, very soulful and much more organic than expected.
