If you’ve been reading this blog at all, or have been following along with me on twitter its no secret that I am enamored of guitarist virtuoso / singer / songwriter / producer slash a million other things, Blake Mills. The 25 year old Vnice based musician has already been part of a career worth of projects from Fiona Apple to Band of Horses. This guy has had his fingers in more stuff than I can keep track of. A few weeks back, Red Bull’s Soundstage put together a short documentary about Blake and its remarkable. The profiling of him has quite the cast waxing poetic on Blake’s gift. I myself have done so, but its great to see a player of his caliber be noted by the Benmont Tench’s and Tony Berg’s of the world.
Also this evening, Blake will be bringing his skills to our fair city as he opens the night at the Wang Centre for Fiona Apple, as well as playing in her band. If you’ve got the chance, you’ve got to check this guy out.
I strongly suggest you purchase his album, Break Mirrors
