James Blake – British singer, songwriter, producer

James Blake Litherland was born on 26 September 1988 in London. His father is a famous British singer James Litherland. He was the one to spot the boy’s talent very early. Mr. Litherland tried hard to hone his son’s music skills. Even though the father was one of the boy’s idols, the musician mentions Stevie Wonder, Sly Stone, and D'Angelo as his inspiration.

James attended music school and learned how to play the piano. His love for music didn’t stop the young man from getting a high school education. After graduating, he enrolled in the University of London to study pop music. While still in school, he already performed on stage. One of James’s projects was "Bass Society" music nights, where he worked alongside Distance, Skream, and Benga.

In 2009, the artist released his first official single, "Air & Lack Thereof". Even though it didn’t make it into the charts, the song became very popular and allowed the singer to catch the attention of many people in the music industry. Soon, the single appeared on the English radio.
