I’ve been a fan of James Blake for a while – ever since Overgrown came out. I don’t remember how I discovered him, maybe through the song ‘Retrograde‘? I remember going out to buy the album from HMV. After that, I went back through his discography and enjoyed it very much! Since then, I’d always wanted to see him live. I managed to tune into a few of the live streams of his concerts. I was very excited when he announced a show at Manchester Academy and immediately booked my ticket. It was a very nice surprise when one of my friends contacted me saying they were also going alone so we decided to meet up.
